Yes, but . . .: It's always best to ask your prescribing doc & dispensing pharmacist what to take and what to avoid. They can only do that if you tell them everything you take including OTC. More importantly, you need to be very specific & detailed. For instance, there are many versions of Delsym, (dextromethorphan) each w/various medication recipes.
