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

Can a 11 week pregnant woman take Tylenol (acetaminophen) cold and flu. She has cold with runny nose and cough. What is best medicine for her?
Be cautious: You are still in the first trimester and it is better to err on the side of caution and avoid unnecessary medications. Fevers should be actively managed but otherwise you are only treating symptoms. I do not recommend multi-symptom preparations. If you must take something, take the minimal effective amount of medication for the particular symptom you are trying to manage. ...Read more
