Can you take similason, tylenol (acetaminophen) and phenylephrine together?

Yes: Phenylephine is safe when dosed according to weight, but it should not be taken at bedtime or by patients with risk of angina of arrhythmia unless under a doctors care. Similasan is a homeopathic remedy which has not proven to have any benefit. There is no apparent interaction between the three, but all such medication decisions should be made with your doctor's blessing. ...Read more

Can i take doxylamine succinate and tylenol (acetaminophen) w codeine?

Can i take doxylamine succinate and tylenol (acetaminophen) w codeine?

Recommend caution: I would not recommend it if you are naive to either medication just because of how sedating the doxylamine and Codeine are in general. The sedating effects in each may compound each other. If you need the pain killer and the sleep aid, and they are prescribed as so, i would recommend staggering the medications to avoid peaks of the medication occurring at the same time. ...Read more

Tramadol & tylenol (acetaminophen): Yes, it is safe, and it even makes sense. Both medications are analgesics, but they work by different mechanisms, thus their effects should be additive. You could also add Ibuprofen to the mix, since it is also an analgesic with a different mechanism. ...Read more

After took panadol (acetaminophen) cold and flu (paracetamol, phenylephrine hydrochloride), can I take actifed afterwards (triprolidine hydrochloride, pseudoephedrine?

No: You shouldn't use both at the same time. If you want to switch from one to the other, wait until it is time for your next dose of the panadol, (acetaminophen) but then take the actifed instead. They are different medicines, but act in almost exactly the same fashion, so taking them together will result in too high a dose. ...Read more

What does mixing norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and pseudoephedrine do?

What does mixing norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and pseudoephedrine do?

A bit of a buzz: Pseudoephrine will cause the release of catacholamines (adrenaline like substances) which will make you a bit hyper. The Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) is sedating, so this will be countered. Mixing drugs like this can result in unexpected results and so is not recommended. ...Read more
