Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I understand your concern and would recommend taking Forte Kidkare Cough or Cold, Rescon DM.

You can take it as a syrup 10ml three or four times daily or as tablet 3 to 4 tablets per day.

It is and OTC drug containing chlorpheniramine/dextromethorphan/pseudoephedrine and you can take it without medical prescription.

It can help against the cough, nasal congestion and does not interact with your current therapy.

Hope to have been helpful!

Kind regards,

Hi. I ve got a head cold and am suffering from nasal congestion, runny nose (the mucus is clear) and body aches. I take 25 mg of amitryptilyn at night, along with topomax and a muscle relaxer for headaches. Can I take an over-the-counter decongestant if I am taking these other medications?

Hi , I m a 33 yr Male and have had a stuffy nose for as long as I can remember, probably about 65% all the time, I have never had the energy it thought I should, and constant ringing in my ears that Im used to. I can sleep throught the night no worries though. I have assumed that the lack of energy was just a motivation thing, I have been checked and are healthy. Is possible that the stuffed nose could be affecting how I feel day to day? Should I bother with an ENT?
