Almost all of the over the counter cold meds interact poorly w/ MAOIs. What have any of you had luck with while on your meds when you have a cold?? The last time my fiance had a cold, he took advil cold and sinus without reading the label and literally had a manic reaction (he took for approx 2 days). It may have been that time during his bp cycle, but, it was certainly aggravated by the cold meds.

Diskus,

I think is this case, your local pharmacist would be the best source. They are knowledgeable of the interactions between MAOIs and other meds.

I don't take any MAOI's but most of the time, I don't take anything, because I'm afraid of the reactions. But Olivia's got the best solution. Pharmacist.

Will do. It's such a minefield...esp when meds are working correctly, you don't want to do anything that will screw up the balance.
