Common Questions and Answers about Can you take zyrtec with mucinex

zyrtec

i would call your dr....they can get you a safe rx ...
You can ask any pharmacist and they can assist you with what is safe and fits your symptoms.
I think it could be more sinus related but I really don't know right now I take both zyrtec and singulair in the evening. I think I will also try the Mucinex to see if that helps. I do get some relief from taking Tussionex cough syrup. Kind of strange but opiates tend to thin the mucus production and it seems to numb my throat where I don't feel the PND or whatever it might be.
Can people with COPD take Allegra? I know Sudafed and others are not recommended for COPD patients. Dr. Rosenwasser's Answer: People who have allergies as well as COPD can take antihistamines for their allergies. Sudafed is a decongestant and a different type of medicine.

So I try to explain to her I haven't had an attack in over 10 years, explaining everything but she said well the dr. says you can take it because you have to. UGH. So I really didn't know what to think at that point. I decide to call my obgyn office and ask them as well. The nurse says at first - I don't think you should use the zrtec during the first trimester. Then she says who is prescribing this to you?? I said my pulmonary dr. - so she says oh then if she says its ok, its ok.
Lauros, I agree about the gun to the head thing too. I am in so much pain, and knowing that there are other does make a huge difference because the doctors amke you feel like you are complaining for the fun of it. I am close to losing my house. I wish I could work at even the smallest job. I was a nurse making a good living 8 months ago, now I am unemployed and in excruciating pain with a sinus and "ear" infection, despite being on IV antibiotics.
It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
I wish I could have helped you with your answers. You are so young and have your whole life ahead of you. My vasomotor rhinitis started 6 yrs. ago when I was 45 yrs. old and after the flu. Take care, maybe in your lifetime they will find a cure, I don't think in my years that I have left that they will though. Sure makes for an unhappy life and I am sorry for you.
He ended up prescribing me zythromax antibiotic, over the counter mucinex-D, and another OTC allergy med. This really did nothing that I can recall other than perhaps take away some of my fatigue. A week later, still with the original symptoms, I saw an ENT who cleaned my wax-packed ears out and prescribed me Omnicef antibiotic and OTC afrin which I have been on for 9 days now and have not experienced any improvement.
You need to sleep elevated too. It'll help relieve the pressure on your chest and sinuses. If you can't prop on pillows yourself then try putting them under your mattress to make it prop a bit. You can fold up extra blankets to put under it too. Even the smallest incline will help a lot.
i searched for others with this problem & was glad to find them because my family are urging me to go to the drs but if all you are alive & kicking with all the medical problems you have then perhaps it is an annoyance i will have to put up with as i am not on the meds you all are on to write it off to, i just have meds for asthma, cholesterol & acid reflux BUT if someone finds a cause or a cure, please let me know
I am 73 and taking warfarin for afib, what med can I take over the counter to help my head/chest cold?
I have also been taking 5-HTP (50mg) for the insomina/anxiety, but don't go overboard with anything because I have read a few studies that it can backfire if you take too much. If you have experienced a mood shift, check out a book called "The Mood Cure" by Julia Ross. And finally, I have also been trying out a sinus rinse by NeilMed (Walgreens), I want to believe that it is working.
They say the problem is I am limited due to my high blood pressure as to what I can take. I would imagine anyone with mod to severe dry eye would have the same problem---- Any ideas for meds ??? Doc says pain reliever- tissues and rest - is there an alternative they may have missed??
It does sound like allergies to me. Try an antihistamine such as Zyrtec, Claritin, Allegra, or Chlor-Trimeton. You can try Benedryl but it tends to cause drowsiness more than the others I mentioned.
If the allegra doesn't seem to help, try another brand. You can ask your pharmacist instead of your doctor for help with that. You could also try posting on the Alternative Therapies forum.
Or if you were ever in a accident and at any time hit your head or jaw, you can start to experience symptoms yrs later. If you think you grind you must get a night guard asap before you wear down any tooth enamel....then you got big problems.
I have tried Allegra D, Mucinex D, Mucinex, Sudafed, Sudafed PE, Afrin, etc. I am currently trying Zyrtec. Is there anything that I can take that's OTC in order to drain the fluid? This is becoming very frustrating and miserable. I would love to have the fluid drain and feel normal again.
About ten years ago it was just the opposite being said - NSAIDS trigger asthma. So take your pick. Whichever works for you is what you should take. Most of the types of medicines you asked about are only available by prescription in the US. The most helpful thing is a sinus rinse. You can get bottles at just about any pharmacy. Drinking LOTS of water is very good as well. Take care and I hope you get to feeling better.
Thank you! For my indegestion and heartburn they suggested pepcid but she let me know all drugs are not completely safe to take.
Do antihistamine medications help with your symptoms? You should avoid substances to which you have documented allergies to. You should take some steam inhalation, saline nasal drops and oral antihistamine medications and see if it helps with your symptoms. If your symptoms still persist it would be best to consult a doctor and get a proper clinical evaluation done. You would need to rule out the other causes of breathing difficulty including asthma, chest infection, sinusitis, etc.
It feel like it's half way choking you and it really drives me nuts! I take mucinex, nasacourt, zyrtec and it helps sometimes but not always. I can live with the change in diet but this mucus choking feeling is really affecting me as far as working out, karate, work and coaching football. When this mucus gets in my throat I do not want to do anything. Ths mucus in my throat is affecting all aspects of my life and what I like to do. What is this in my throat?? Would allergy shots help??
My dr gave me a list of all approved meds you can take, I don't have it at the moment but if you ask your dr they will usually provide you with one.
Rinsing my sinuses with saline and taking Mucinex. I take a lot of Mucinex this time of year. I used to take Benydrl and Chlortrimeton but they dried me out and impacted the mucus. I now hardly even need my Symbicort much less Albuteral. I used to have to sleep in a recliner. Eating was a bear because of choking. Now I can't recall the last time I choked. I still have a lot of symptoms this time a year just not the coughing. I hope you are better soon.
If the allergens are identified,prevention is the best treatment.Otherwise in addition to the zyrtec,you can take nasal corticosteroid sprays like nasocort or flonase. Decongestants may also be helpful in reducing symptoms such as nasal congestion, but they should not be used for long periods. Cromolyn sodium is a nasal spray (Nasalcrom) for treating hay fever. If the symptoms are intense then you can go in for immunotherapy. Hope it helps.
