Yes: You can use a decongestant while on prozac (fluoxetine). Would watch the amount of caffeine while on the decongestant as this can be additive. Would take the lowest effective dose and for the shortest time needed.

Can I take NyQuil and Sudafed together since NyQuil doesn't have a decongestant?

It Depends: Unfortunately, there are mult versions of Nyquil. Some contain the active ingredient in Sudafed (usually actually Sudafed PE which is phenylephrine). Other's do not. When it comes to OTC the counter meds it is as confusing and dangerous as if not more than prescriptions meds. Talk to your doc or pharmacist about the right product (s) for your specific needs and poss interaction with your presc meds ...Read more

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and Levaquin: Are both fluoroquinolone antibiotics and have a very close spectrum. The only explanation would be that you were infected with bacteria that is sensitive to Cipro (ciprofloxacin) but resistant to Levaquin, a rare occurrence.. ...Read more

I got switched to Macrobid but took one 500mg cipro (ciprofloxacin) 4 hours ago. Is it ok to take the Macrobid now and not take the cipro (ciprofloxacin) again? Don't want to wait

Macrobid vs cipro (ciprofloxacin): You were presumably switched for a reason. Maybe the laboratory reported back that the bug that was infewcting you was not sensitive -i, e, was not destroyed by cipro (ciprofloxacin) but was by macrobid. You should speak to your doc about why he choose to switch your antibiotics. ...Read more

Also. Can you take probiotics with cipro (ciprofloxacin)?

Probiotics are fine: You can pay money for "probiotics" or just eat them in your food like in yogurt, sour cream or yogurt drinks.
