Can I take alka seltzer plus cold and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at the same time?

Can I take alka seltzer plus cold and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at the same time?

Cough medicines: Alka seltzer plus has I believe Acetaminophen and phenylephrine in it which is a decongestant but not an antihistamine. It also has dextromethorphan cough suppressant. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an antihistamine. So yes you can take them together of added effect on sinus and nasal congestion. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can make you sleepy. ...Read more

Possible interaction: According to the box label, each packet has diphenhydramine 25 mg (aka Benadryl) which causes sedation and might be a problem with Zoloft (sertraline) depending on your dose. Why not try a non-sedating decongestant? Ask the pharmacist for help. ...Read more

Is it ok to take alka seltzer plus cold and flu and take clartin d in the same day?

Is it ok to take alka seltzer plus cold and flu and take clartin d in the same day?

Multiple medications: Before you start treating yourself, you must have a diagnosis in mind. Do you think you have the flu? If so, none of the items you are taking offer any effective treatment for it. They are a little bit like chicken soup, they may not help you and they cannot hurt you. If you have phlegm that is greenish in color, see a physician for antibiotics. Good luck. ...Read more

I took alka seltzer plus at 9:15 pm not fully reading it. I have mostly nasal congestion. When can I take either DayQuil or Advil cold and sinus?

Vapor inhalation: Rather than taking either of these medications, you may help your congestion better by taking steam or water vapor inhalation.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless.
Practice safe sex.

I take a generic version of zyrtec (cetirizine) in the morning can I take alka seltzer cold and cough at night?

Yes: And if you can quit smoking, you'd get sick much less! Don't forget that in the winter, our noses need moisture--even when we think they are stuffy. Many times they are asking for moisture. I like ayr saline gel spray as it sticks and doesn't run down the back of your throat. Steroid nasal sprays are helpful too! ...Read more

How long do I have to wait to breast feed after taking alka seltzer cold plus?

How long do I have to wait to breast feed after taking alka seltzer cold plus?

10-12 hours: As the drug is a combo of 3 meds: aspirin (probably unsafe with breast feeding), phenylepherine (safety profile unkown with breastfeeding) and chloepheneramine (possibly safe). The first two can stay in the system for about 10-12 hours, the latter stays longer, may be a day, but not totally contraindicated during breastfeeding, and after 12 hours wouldn't be as concentrated in the system, good luck ...Read more

How long should I wait to breastfeed if I took alka seltzer plus? (night time) It has 500 mg aspirin! How long will it take to be out of my breastmilk

How long should I wait to breastfeed if I took alka seltzer plus? (night time) It has 500 mg aspirin! How long will it take to be out of my breastmilk

Wouldn't worry: If baby is otherwise healthy I would continue to feed and just avoid aspirin in the future. We don't like to expose kids with any viral illness because of its association with Reye syndrome under those conditions. Otherwise it is just there, and a relative transfer of 2-10% occurs. If sick, pump and dump for 8 hours and it should be fine thereafter. ...Read more
