Doxycycline, tamiflu, depo-medrol, all for the flu. Can I also take Zyrtec for stuffy nose?

Tamiflu is used for flu and zyrtec could be used to relief the associated stuffy nose. It is unclear while you will be on steroids anf doxycycline if it is only flu.

I am nursing and have the flu, what can I take?

Tamiflu and others

Oseltamivir
Tamiflu is a prescribed medication & helps if started within the first 48hrs of sx. It is considered safe for breast feeding. Most of the other OTC meds have little to offer & those containing antihistamines can reduce milk volume.Ibuprofen and acetomenophen are also quite safe for breast feeding.
