This is Dr. David
you can take over the counter cold and flu medications
sounds like you have already tried benadryl and advil cold and sinus and nyquil.
you might have a bad sinus infection and you might need a course of antibiotics.
or allergy medications
how long have you been having your symptoms?
are you having any fevers?
4 days and no fever
are your symptoms getting better or staying the same?
or getting worse?
are the over the counter cold and flu medications helping your symptoms?
They are better but while was taking them my depression seemed to get bad agAin and was very adjitated.
benadryl sometimes can do this
cause worse agitation.
nyquil as well, since it has alcohol in it. probably best to stay away from nyquil.
I'm glad your cold symptoms are better.
hopefully in a few more days you can kick this viral cold infection and feel better and not have to take those medications anymore.
the cipralex is to help with your depression and so stay on that.
I hope you feel better
do you have any other questions for me?
What about advil cold and sinus?
that should be fine.
that has pseudophedrine in it which can cause some mild agitation and cause racing heart beats, but it is a decongestant to help clear up your sinuses when you have a viral cold infection.
if your sinuses are clearer, you don't have to take it.
are you breathing better? less runny nose?
5 days and no fever
that sounds like a long cold infection.
you might want to see your doctor and see if you might benefit from an antibiotic to help clear up any possible infection in the sinuses.
have you taken antibiotics before?
that is good you are feeling better.
