I can't breath right now, I'm so stuffy. I think I went through this a few months ago but I can't remember the answer. Are either of these safe to take on UC? I currently take 4 sulfasalazine daily. I'm in remission and would really like to stay that way.

Thanks in advance.

I've used nyquil with no issues...just this week I started off with a cold and used "Cold FX" right at the start, that stuff is amazing....apparently it contains a few herbals in it and the main one is ginseng (it has more ginseng in it compared to the others that are in it).

Feel better soon :)

Okay thanks. I took nyquil, so hopefully it will clear my nose without causing a flare. Ugh, getting a common cold stresses me out so much more than it used to before UC.

Thanks for the quick answer.

That's why it works so well and as long as you're not drinking it regularly it should be fine.

I also really like Mucinex...I take the sinus one any time I start getting runny nose.
