Question: I have a head cold, with lots of flem and nasal discharge, and some nasal pain. I'm currently in New Zealand on holiday. Before I left home, I took with me, a package of Desloradine (5 mg) tablets, as I do deal with grass and plant allergies and thought I should be prepared. I'm certain my problem is not allergy related, but note that the Desloradine has decongestant properties. Can I use it for relief from my head cold?
Would love to hear your response. XXXXXXX XXXX

Brief Answer:
You can take Descloradine with paracetamol, you have self limiting viral infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi, XXXXXXX XXXX,
Thanks for posting query.
It seems that you might be having viral infection and it is self limited.
Only requirement in this case is to have symptomatic relief from congestion, headache and for this you can take Descloradine 5 mg for 2-3 days.

You can take paracetamol for headache or body ache.
This will give you relief from your symptoms.
Avoid exertion.
Avoid cold drinks, fried and junk food.
I hope, I answered your query.
If you have further query or clarification, please ask.
Wishing you speedy recovery.

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, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...I lay on my left side 80% of the day it s just the way I sit. I m overweight. And I smoke I have anxiety and acid reflux and always seem to have alot of gas. I ve been having pain under my left breast it ranges from my left side all the way to the sternum. But the pAin hits and only last for a few moments then is gone that may repeat for about a half hour to an hour. Then it usually stops. I have been taking a very large amount of Tylenol and asprin probably about 12 Tylenol and 5 asprin per day for last 6 months. I take the aspirin because I think it protects my heart and the Tylenol because I usually get head or body aches. I m 31 and don t exercise. I m worried it could be my heart but like I said I also have anxiety and am always thinking of heart attacks. I recently thought it could be my spleen gallbladder. I really don t know but would like an opinion as to what I should do. I m half tempted to go tell the dr to check my arterys to see if I have any blockage just knowing if I didn t I think would be a huge weight lifted off me. I m also scared of surgery I ve never had one. So what is your opinion and what u think should be done.
