Can you take generic multi symptom night time medicine with night time Thera-Flu? I don't usually get drowsy from just one dose of antihistamine. I have adhd so it's hard for me to get sleepy from that. So is it okay to take both?

Hi. can i take non-drowsy allergy relief and nighttime cold and flu medicine at the same time? I have a runny nose, sneezing, cough, and ear pain.

Hi. can i take non-drowsy allergy relief and nighttime cold and flu medicine at the same time? I have a runny nose, sneezing, cough, and ear pain.

Nighttime cold & flu: medicine should be enough, most of them already contain an antihistamine in the ingredients, so no need to add a non-drowsy allergy medicine. Read the labels carefully, rest, fluids, salt water gargles and saline nasal washes, if no improvement soon, especially ear pain, see your doctor, also stop smoking if you are, and avoid being around smokers, best wishes ...Read more

I have a 100.2 fever, sneezing, coughing, running nose, sleepiness and nausea. Is it a cold or the flu? I've had this for 2 days.

I have a 100.2 fever, sneezing, coughing, running nose, sleepiness and nausea. Is it a cold or the flu? I've had this for 2 days.

Not clear: But there are simple tests for influenza A and B. If you do have those there is a medicine which helps but only if taken within 72 hours of onset. Go see your doc immediately. If it's a cold, more likely from your description, the old standby is chicken soup (Jewish Penicillin). Good luck! ...Read more

Hi. I was wondering if I can take non-drowsy allergy relief and nighttime cold and flu? I have a stuffy nose but a headache and ear ache also..

Depends: If your non-drowsy allergy relief contains a decongestant, it may keep you awake although it would provide some relief in your nasal congestion. If it contains just an antihistamine, it would not help your cold but would not keep you awake either. For short term use, an OTC nasal congestant spray may be more effective (not to be used for more than 5 days). ...Read more

One year old daughter feels hot but no fever why? Her eyes are drowsy and she has little appetite.

One year old daughter feels hot but no fever why? Her eyes are drowsy and she has little appetite.

Getting sick: Many children "feel"warm before they register a fever. Looking drowsy and loss of appetite can also indicate beginning of illness. Let her rest and drink plenty of fluids. We will see if she fights it off or goes on to develop other symptoms. She could also just be tired and hungry as well. ...Read more

Could taking multivitamins cause side effects, like nausea, fever, drowsiness etc, ? Or is it just like a herxheimer reaction? Thanks.

Could taking multivitamins cause side effects, like nausea, fever, drowsiness etc, ?  Or is it just like a herxheimer reaction? Thanks.

Yes: Forgive my frankness. First, today's medical quacks use the term "herxheimer reaction" whenever one of their own products actually makes somebody sick. ("we destroyed the infection / poisons so quickly.") free speech laws protect them. Second, if you are reading books by crooks and buying their products, you never know what's really in those pills. It's your health and your money. ...Read more
