I have found that MOST cold meds are okay, but that some decongestants can be way too strong for my belly. Like Mucinex - I bought the generic version and it stayed in my body for less than an hour. Horrible experience, but then I know other people that swear by that stuff...
Also, I always have better luck with the liquid cold medicines rather than pills... they don't seem to upset my stomach as much. Using anything for more than a day or two can send me into a flare though, so I usually stop as soon as I'm able...

Remicade only, every 16 weeks.
Digestive enzymes, and probiotics.
Doing pretty darn good, all things considered.
