The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system.

Can i take cold eeze tabs for throat. Delsym (dextromethorphan) for cough and sudafed pe for stuffy head. All together?
If not double-dosing: A person can usually briefly take different over-the-counter "cold" medications, as long as she reads the labels and does not accidentally double-dose on an ingredient. Watch for acetominophen (tylenol) and Ibuprofen (motrin, advil) in the multi-ingredient medications. A person with a sore throat should check with her doctor to see if she has a strep throat infection, or other "treatable" illness. ...Read more
33 yr old/female. Dizziness and lightheaded. Taking allegra d, symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) and pro-air. Blood pressure 95/60. Why dizziness?
BP a bit low: Your BP is a bit low which maybe causing your dizziness. If the dizziness occurs often from rapid change of position from laying to sitting or standing , then likely it is due to low bp.

Have pneumonia asthma bronchitis on prednisone 40mgx5 levoflaxcin500x7 is ok to take benedryl, cough supp and expectorant to manage severe coughing?
Probably OK but..: If your cough is caused by uncontrolled asthma, then you need to get the asthma under control instead of relying on cough medicine to relieve the symptoms. On the other hand, if your lung function is reasonably good and the cough is too bothersome, i see no harm in taking a cough suppressant for a few days. I would suggest that you talk to your doctor about these issues. ...Read more
Cough variant asthma: Dry cough could be related to asthma. This condition is called cough variant asthma. You should see your doctor to confirm the diagnosis and rule out any other causes. Treatment is similar to that for asthma in general. Depending on the severity of cough, inhaled albuterol or short course of steroids may be needed.

I have pneumonia and i'm taking levaquin (levofloxacin) and tessalon perles plus cough syrup------is all that okay?
Perhaps: I find that cough medicines like tessalon perles and non-codeine containing cough meds are not terribly effective for the cough from pneumonia. They are more effective for post nasal drip or tracheitis coughs. If the pneumonia is bacterial, Levaquin (levofloxacin) is often very effective. If the pneumonia is viral-and many pneumonias are-the antibiotic will make no difference. ...Read more

Taking Zoloft 150mg and strattera (atomoxetine) 60mg. What is safe to take for head/chest congestion, cough, fever, and body aches?
Avoid Cold medicines: Cough in young children is extremely frustrating for parents. Unfortunately cough medications used in adults don't work in children. Decongestants in combination with cough medications can actually be harmful. Using guafenesin may be helpful to help secretions stay loose. Increasing fluid intake and humidity in the air can definitely help. Honey (for kids over 12 months) may be a natural remedy. ...Read more
