Is it okay to take acetaminophen, phenylephrine hci, dextromethorphan hbr, and chlorpheniramine while taking concerta and celexa (citalopram)?

After took panadol (acetaminophen) cold and flu (paracetamol, phenylephrine hydrochloride), can I take actifed afterwards (triprolidine hydrochloride, pseudoephedrine?

After took panadol (acetaminophen) cold and flu (paracetamol, phenylephrine hydrochloride), can I take actifed afterwards (triprolidine hydrochloride, pseudoephedrine?

No: You shouldn't use both at the same time. If you want to switch from one to the other, wait until it is time for your next dose of the panadol, (acetaminophen) but then take the actifed instead. They are different medicines, but act in almost exactly the same fashion, so taking them together will result in too high a dose. ...Read more

Is diphenhydramine hydrochloride and doxylamine succinate ok together?

Is diphenhydramine hydrochloride and doxylamine succinate ok together?

Caution Required: Both drugs have similar "mechanisms of action." therefore, the effects they produce are "additive" and, in theory, can pile up to create more effects than would be predicted if each drug were taken by itself...Almost as if 1+1=3! both drugs produce sedation and have anti-histamine properties. So, excessive sleepiness or agitation can happen. Be cautious..Speak to your provider or pharmacist! ...Read more

My 15 year old daughter took 2 30mg Pseudoephrine HCI tablets. She also took 2 tsp of tussin CF which contained Phenylephrine HCI 5mg. Should we be wo?

Not really: This is not a situation that will lead to serious toxicity. She may have trouble sleeping and feel "spacey". Please have her consult with you before taking any medication, including OTC medications. She has taken more than twice the recommended dose of Pseudephedrine and combined with Phenylephrine will have some minor side effects. ...Read more
