I take Paxil (paroxetine) and clonazepam and I have cold/flu I need medicine but the only thing recommended is Mucinex dm which never worked for me! Is there anything else I can take that is safe less side effects?

I take Paxil (paroxetine) and clonazepam and I have cold/flu I need medicine but the only thing recommended is Mucinex dm which never worked for me! Is there anything else I can take that is safe less side effects?

Try topicals: The only interaction between OTC cold medicines and paroxetine is the increased risk for serotonin syndrome (rare). If you have a history of this syndrome or any others - I'd call your doctor. In the meantime - I'd suggest an intranasal spray (Nasacort) and Chloraseptic Max throat drops to treat the symptoms. DayQuil should be ok - but check with your doctor since they know your history. G'luck! ...Read more
