Not wise: It is not wise to take 2 meds unless you are sure there won't be interactions between the meds. Many of these affect things like your heart rate, and combining them can be worse than additive. If you have symptoms you are trying to clear that one alone does not take care of, consider other measures such as humidity, fluids and sinus rinse that have no side effects.

Can Pepcid (famotidine) be taken with cold medicine? Taken over-the-counter cold meds, liquid and pills, but have really bad heartburn.
It's OK: Pepcid is a type of histamine blocker that is not found in any cold products. You need to be careful with cold meds because they have multiple ingredients. I advise my patients to take only OTC meds that have 1 ingredient! If you need pain relief - take ibuprofen. If you need cough suppressant - take robitussin (guaifenesin). If you need decongestant - take sudafed. Even I get confused in that aisle!!!
Multiple: Otc cold medicines can alleviate almost every symptom: -pain/pressure (acetaminophen, ibuprophen) -congestion (phenylephrine, pseudoephedrine) -drainage (antihistamines) I would look directly for these ingredients to see what you are targeting. If not improving, an prescription antibiotic would be needed for the infection.
All OTC meds: Any commercial products are fine to use.
No: Over the counter AZO or cold preparations may ease some of the pain/discomfort symptoms associated with a urinary tract infection but do nothing to treat the infection, which may become systemic and lead to sepsis in the long run. It is important that you see a doctor and get started on an antibiotic and have a urine culture to confirm infection and effective antibiotic regimens.
