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.
