I am taking Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and steroids for influenza type B. Can I take something to help with the symptoms: head and chest congestion, sore throat, cough?
Can i take antibiotics and cold medicine at the same time? I'm taking antibiotics for an ear infection, but have just come down with a really bad chest cold. Can i take OTC cold medicine, like Mucinex (guaifenesin) at the same time? #nqlu
Mucinex (guaifenesin) : Mucinex (guaifenesin) is compatible with all antibiotics. Keep in mind that cold medications can only improve symptoms temporarily and do not actively fight respiratory infections. Some cold medicines, like antihistamnes, may actually delay the improvement in a cold.

I accidentally took tylenol (acetaminophen) cold and sinus with other cough medicine, now i can't sleep and have difficultly of breathing, what will i do?
Sinus med and insomn: Sinus medications can prevent you from sleeping. If you cannot sleep with coffee then you will not sleep with sinus meds (sudafed for example). For decongestant at night use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and use sudafed (or equivalent) only strictly in daytime. If you cough more at night than daytime then you need a brocho-dilator to open your airways to stop coughing. Good doctors do not prescribe cough sirop. ...Read more

I am taking 75 MG of Sertraline and can't sleep because of a bad cough. I read not to take anything with DM in it for colds and coughs? What can I do?
That's right: Sertraline and dextromethotphan, contained in many cough medicines, has to be used with caution when taking sertraline, so better avoid those preparations. Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) might help, and doesn't interact with sertraline, however still use it cautiously. Bottom line is you need to be seen, as you may very well need Rx medicines, meanwhile, rest, fluids, saline nasal washes would help ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends...: Do you mean brom-fed dm? And what anxiety med are you taking? The brom-fed cough syrup can make you drowsy as can some anxiety meds.
