Can you mix umcka coldcare hot drink with dayquil? I want to be sure before I try it if it is safe.
Yes : The active ingredient in an umcka coldcare is pelargonium sidoides which is a medicinal plant native to South Africa and shown to be helpful in relieving cold-related-symptoms. Well-tolerated with rare side effects and should be able to combine with dayquil without any concerns. ...Read more

Xanax (alprazolam): If low dose & not contraindicated by your prescribing doctor. ...Read more
Be careful.: It's never a great idea to mix drugs, especially if you're not sure about their possible effect. Both over-the-counter cold medicine and xanax (alprazolam) (an anti-anxiety drug) may sedate you. Sometimes combinations of drugs have a more potent effect than you'd expect. Remember that alcohol and anxiety medications can be a deadly combination as well. You are ok now; but talk to your doctor about combining meds. ...Read more
NO: All the over the counter cold and flu medication is not safe for infants. We no longer have any medications for infants because they have caused drowiness and seizures in some. The safe thing to do is just saline nasal drops into the infants nose to control the nasal congestions and suctioning their nose. ...Read more

I took 4 doses of dayquil 48 hours ago each containing 625 mg acetaminophen. When would it be safe to have more than the standard 2-3 alcoholic bevgs?
Alcohol is a poison and it never did anybody any good, ever. Stay away from it.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I took 2 pills of Ibuprofen about and hour and a half ago. I have a fever and I was wondering if it is safe to take Dayquil?
Yes: Dayquil has a decongestant, cough suppressant and acetaminophen in it. Yes, it can be combined with ibuprofen. However, it may take a couple of hours for the ibuprofen to lower your fever. Also, it's OK to have a low-grade fever, as it's your body's natural way to "kill" a virus or bacteria, and thus, it's not necessary to lower your temperature to a normal level. ...Read more
I took DayQuil 3 hours ago for sinus congestion and cough, it has not helped. When is it safe to take a 12 hour Claritin (loratadine) D?
4-6 hours usually:
Check the instructions on your bottle of Dayquil and find out the suggested interval between doses. You can safely take Claritin (loratadine) D any time after that interval. You can also take Robitussin DM or Delsym for cough simultaneously.
Make sure you aren't duplicating any individual ingredients. The number one problem with multi-symptom OTC meds is inadvertent overdosing! ...Read more

I am on 5mg of Lexapro (escitalopram) and have a cold. Is it safe to take Nyquil/Dayquil? I read online that there was a contraindication with dextromethorphan.
Avoid Nyquil/Dayquil: May risk interaction. Choose a cold product containing chlorpheniramine (antihistamine) and phenylephrine (decongestant). Drink fluids, inhale steam, blow nose carefully and frequently, use saline nasal spray, stay warm and rested, gargle with warm salt water, drink hot liquids (tea and honey very good), take steamy shower, prop head with extra pillow for sleep. Brst regards for relief. ...Read more
