I have a cold / flu stuffed nose coughing mucus and fever headache. Can I take robitusin eith Tylenol cold at same time?

Better not: and which ones? Either Robitussin or tylenol cold have several preparations with different ingredients, stick to only one and read the labels carefully for dosing and timing. Rest, fluids, saline nasal washes would help, and tylenol would help fever, if not better or symptoms are getting worse in a day or two, see your doctor, wish you well ...Read more

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

In night have sore throat, blocked nose, fever, then go cold, and day time have chesty throat instead when cough headache , feel slightly sick? Cure?

Likely a virus : Likely a virus. Take rest, drink plenty fluids, & chicken noodle soup. You should be improving in 2-3 days & healed by 5-7 days. If worsening symptoms persist, esp with fever, then you must see clinician & may need antibiotics. Virus germs don't respond to antibiotics , only bacterial germs, & yours is most likely a virus.

Is Mucinex (guaifenesin) cough cold and sore throat cough syrup ok to give to my 3 yr old?

Is Mucinex (guaifenesin) cough cold and sore throat cough syrup ok to give to my 3 yr old?

Avoid Cold medicines: Cough in young children is extremely frustrating for parents. Unfortunately cough medications used in adults don't work in children. Decongestants in combination with cough medications can actually be harmful. Using guafenesin may be helpful to help secretions stay loose. Increasing fluid intake and humidity in the air can definitely help. Honey (for kids over 12 months) may be a natural remedy. ...Read more

Can i take cold eeze tabs for throat. Delsym (dextromethorphan) for cough and sudafed pe for stuffy head.  All together?

If not double-dosing: A person can usually briefly take different over-the-counter "cold" medications, as long as she reads the labels and does not accidentally double-dose on an ingredient. Watch for acetominophen (tylenol) and Ibuprofen (motrin, advil) in the multi-ingredient medications. A person with a sore throat should check with her doctor to see if she has a strep throat infection, or other "treatable" illness. ...Read more
