ask your local pharmacist/chemist. they are the experts when it comes to med interactions.

good luck,

I take Clonzepam 0.5mg prn and I actually use Vitamin C and Echinacea to control colds and such but like Maz said, you really should consult your pharmacist/chemist or Pdoc about that because I don't know you medical history and what works for you :)

even if i did know your history, i wouldnt be comfortable advising anything other than the herbal stuff Sam referred to. only a medical professional can answer that stuff-

I agree you should contact your pharmacist. I have a cold/sinus issue going on right now, but I am taking cold meds to help and not currently on any anxiety meds.

I'm not a doctor. When I was just taking Prozac and Ativan, I took Benadryl for cold symptoms. I didn't take the Benadryl on a day I took the Ativan because they both cause drowsiness. Now I've added Carvedilol to my small list of meds. I found out I can NOT take any cold meds with this Beta Blocker.

As everyone else suggested, call your local pharmacy. Tell them what you're taking and see what they suggest. Good luck!

Hey there, I think we all agree the best person to ask is your physician as he knows your allergy hx and your medical onditions and what meds your on.

Take care and hope your well soon

Its not a good idea to seek medical advice from people on forums who (for the most part) have no idea what they are talking about.
 
Call your local pharmacy and ask a professional. They are the only ones who you should be seeking a correct response from.

kevinpanic, you may have noticed that everyone of us who have 'no idea' what we are talking about all gave the same advice- to seek a medical, professional opinion. please be informed before you post. thankyou.
