Can I take an alergy medicine with a decongestant such as zytec d while in myfirst trimester of pregnancy?

I was just prescribed Z Pak for reoccurring Strep Throat. Is it safe for me to take an Aleve D while taking the Z Pak?

I was just prescribed Z Pak for reoccurring Strep Throat. Is it safe for me to take an Aleve D while taking the Z Pak?

YES.: Assuming you aren't allergic to Aleve (Naproxen) or similar NSAID medications like Motrin (Iburofen) or aspirin, you can take it with ZPack. You may not need the D part of the Aleve D. It is a nasal decongestant that you might not need and has side effects like jitteriness and sleep disturbance. ...Read more

Is it safe to take Aleve d sinus headache with levovetirizine 5 mg because I got a bad sinus headache.doc got me levovetirizine for post nasal drip .

Is it safe to take Aleve d sinus headache with levovetirizine 5 mg because I got a bad sinus headache.doc got me levovetirizine for post nasal drip .

Yes it's safe: The nasal spray is an antihistamine for allergies and the aleve has a decongestant to open up the sinuses and loosen mucous. These are commonly taken together. However, given that you are taking medication for high blood pressure, you should be careful with any decongestant as they can raise your BP. Use Coricidin instead or talk to hour pharmacist. Keep a close eye on your BP. ...Read more

I took Aleve for muscle pain this afternoon and am already taking a z pack for a sinus infection later today i drank a 5 hour energy to help me study ?

What is the question: Zpack is an antibiotic (zithromax) which is safe to take with aleve (naproxen) which is an anti-inflammatory pain reliever which can alleviate the symptoms of sinus congestion pain (a decongestant may help as well if your blood pressure is fine - eg. Pseudoephedrine). I am not a fan of the 5 hour energy drink- but probably not harmful in this situation if only 1. You may need rest for recovery. ...Read more
