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

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

Is it safe to take tylenol (acetaminophen). And tramadol together? Tylenol (acetaminophen).500mg and tramadol 50mg..

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

Can i take tylenol (acetaminophen) sinus congestion with Claritin 24 hours?

Can i take tylenol (acetaminophen) sinus congestion with Claritin 24 hours?

Yes, for short time: The previous answer is sound. To add: the 3,000 mg per day relates to the Tylenol (a.k.a. acetaminophen) component. Also check the decongestant drug that appears in both products. If it is the same, mind the daily dose. If different, it is harder to advise around doses, but know that there is little need for both, and they may raise your blood pressure. Safer take plain Tylenol with Claritin-D 24. ...Read more
