Yes: Phenylephrine HCl, Chlorphenamine Maleate and Paracetamol won't decrease the effectiveness of your birth control pills. Best wishes!

Those medications won't affect your birth control effectiveness, but if you get recurrent bad colds you may be having repeated sinus infections. You may be well advised to see an ear, nose and throat doctor about controlling your symptoms better.
