After my flu vaccine, I have this terrible flu and i took a flu pills called chlorpheniramine. Does that cause any side effect? Or any bad effect?
Probably not flu: If you're in the U.S., it's probably not flu. Flu vaccine can't give the flu, and there's very little flu in the U.S. Right now. Flu shots are given during cold season, so it's common to get a cold after you get the flu shot, just by coincidence. Chlorpheniramine is a an antihistamine used to treat allergies. It won't do much for a cold or a flu, other than to make you sleepy. Try a decongestant. ...Read more

I am taken omeprazole and itraconazole. When I checked drug to drug interaction It said avoid combination serious interaction can I know why. I cannot stop neither. I need both drugs.
I had grapefruit, then took 10mg of cetirizine about an hour or so later. I had no idea grapefruit could interact with antihistamines. Am i in danger?
No.: There is a protein in grapefruit that can inhibit one of the systems in the body that metabolize drugs. So, this may increase the potency of certain family of drugs, by decreasing the breaking down of the drug in the body. The two antihistamines that were in this category have been removed from the market, so there is probably a small, but clinically insignificant, effect. Don't worry. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I have been taking flexerol. I took it 8 hours ago. And don't feel any more back paint. It is it OK to have some adult beverages?
Be Careful: Probably OK if it's been 8 hours as long as you don't feel drowsy or out-of-it, but be careful, Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) and drugs like it can have an alcohol-like effect so it is generally recommended not to drink when taking them. But, hey, ONE drink 8 hours later is OK, just don't take another Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl), or any other potentially sedating drugs, for at least 4 hours after the "adult beverage." ...Read more
