Common Questions and Answers about Can you take zyrtec with mucinex


Avatar f tn The only thing when I have a cold that works is the Alka-Seltzer Plus. I have researched, you can take it while pregnant BUT with research do not over three days. I was just recently sick, nothing was working. I took that, and by the third day I was better. There is one thing in there that we really shouldn't have(I can't remember right now what it is) but I took it when I was pregnant with my first, before I knew I was pregnant. There was no complications due to taking it.
Avatar n tn i would call your dr....they can get you a safe rx ...
Avatar f tn You can ask any pharmacist and they can assist you with what is safe and fits your symptoms.
Avatar f tn My dr said you can take any Tylenol product.
Avatar m tn 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.
242588 tn?1224275300 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.

Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn A netty pot works too and you can get those at any grocery or drug store. You just need to find out if you can take the mucinex while pregnant and if not, what alternative to that you can take. Then lots of vitamin C and most importantly, SLEEP (which is when our body heals).
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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
Avatar f tn 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.
1524212 tn?1291840800 I am 73 and taking warfarin for afib, what med can I take over the counter to help my head/chest cold?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn After that didn't help, I talked to the doctor, they told me to take mucinex and sudafed. Took those and still stuffed. Took antibiotics thinking it was an infection and I received no results. I am 5 weeks pregnant since yesterday and wondering if it has anything to do with the pregnancy. Has anyone experienced this, if so, what did you do that helped?
Avatar m tn 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??
1386655 tn?1452100656 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
1663704 tn?1302915977 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.
Avatar f tn Thank you! For my indegestion and heartburn they suggested pepcid but she let me know all drugs are not completely safe to take.
