A 22-year-old female asked:

Can you take generic multi symptom night time medicine with night time thera-flu? i don't usually get drowsy from just one dose of antihistamine. i have adhd so it's hard for me to get sleepy from that. so is it okay to take both?

No: Those preparations contain multiple drugs similar to thera-flu, the problem isn't with antihistamines only, other components could interact, or interact with whatever medicines you are on or if you are under treatment for adhd, please consult your doctor and read the labels carefully, good that you asked , always exercise caution with multiple medications,
