No more Sudafed: Please do not take any more pseudoephedrine. 240mg is the maximum daily dose of this drug. If you have high blood pressure, this is a dangerous drug and should be avoided. A fast, irregular, pounding heartbeat, mental or mood changes like anxiety, confusion, restlessness, shaking, difficulty urinating, as well as swelling, difficulty breathing, itching all need immediate evaluation. ...Read more

No: Dextromethorphan has never been shown in studies to relieve any symptom of colds, flu, allergies, bronchitis or pneumonia, including cough, and can be dangerous in high doses. If you have thick mucous, use PLAIN guafenesin (Mucinex). If you have nausea or a cough use PLAIN phenergan, or (for cough) phenergan + codeine or hydrocodone (but you will need a rx for phenergan + anything). ...Read more

I took mucinex dm two hours ago. Is it ok to take one 500 mg acetaminophen?

Maybe...: If a person had no problems taking Mucinex DM in the past, and she had no problems taking acetaminophen (Tylenol) in the past, then she should be fine this time taking both medications (because the two medications have different ingredients) either together or apart... as along as she is not taking too much of either medicine than she should take in one day. ...Read more

I suggest you see your family doctor to discuss treatments for your anxiety. These can take many forms, including benzodiazepines antidepressants and counseling. Newer antidepressants are very effective for many people in relieving anxiety symptoms. Hope this helps. ...Read more
