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.

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.
