Re: Antihistimean(sp) and/or Decongestants;
I've been told by my neurologist and family Doctor that, If I should happen to catch a cold or the flu , Since I'm on medication for my EP
, I should not take any over the counter medications, especially the ones that contain DECONGESTANT or ANTIHISTIMINE
as they can cause internal bleeding or even massive nose bleeds. When they mix with the other meds that I'm on, they can also trigger a seizure.
P.S. ~ This is valuable info. and is not printed on medication bottles and/or literature that comes with the meds.
I don't know why the FDA doesn't make this a manditory practise for drug Cos.
