I was depressed and took 11 Coricidin cough and cold pills at once and ever since then I've been having awful migranes every day. It's been a month?

I was depressed and took 11 Coricidin cough and cold pills at once and ever since then I've been having awful migranes every day. It's been a month?

Get labs done: Because the coricdin could have had tylenol (acetaminophen) and many other substances that could be harmful, it would be a good idea to get your liver and kidneys checked out, as problems with those could cause migraines. I would also recommend testing for the mthfr 677 ; 1298 genotype, getting treated for this can help with many of your other symptoms (hyperactivity, inattention, depression, anxiety, etc...). ...Read more

Does Mucinex (guaifenesin) d have acetaminophen? Can you take Coricidin after you've taken Mucinex (guaifenesin) d

Does Mucinex (guaifenesin) d have acetaminophen? Can you take Coricidin after you've taken Mucinex (guaifenesin) d

Mucinex (guaifenesin) DM?: Mucinex dm is guaifenesin, a mucolytic with dextromethorphan used as cough suppressant. Why the combination beats me, lol. Coricidin will be an antihistamine and if with a d will be a decongestant like a pseudoephedrin. These are all different medicines that can be mixed to treat both secretions from the lungs, and the nose and sinuses. So the answer is yes, they can be mixed. ...Read more

Hello I need to know if it's ok to take Coricidin cough and cold for allergies, while taking amlodipine besylate 5mg?

Yes: If you have hypertension you should avoid decongestant, usually with the letter "d" after the medication (robitussin (guaifenesin) d, Allegra d, etc)
usually the d for decongestant is pseudoephedrine, a stimulant that iincrease bp, heart rate and can get you in trouble.

If I take coricidin cough and cold and I don't have high blood pressure, will it effect me adversely (I'm taking it for the right reason, I'm sick)?

If I take coricidin cough and cold and I don't have high blood pressure, will it effect me adversely (I'm taking it for the right reason, I'm sick)?

Safe medication: For a young healthy person a short course of over the counter medication is unlikely to be harmful. The other side of that, though, is that most OTC meds aren't very effective. For a serious cough a prescription medication might be best, but if the cough is minor you're better off to try home remedies. Look here for ideas: http://commonsensehome.
