20mg Prozac I read there are severe interactions with Dexmethorophan so what can I take for a really bad cough with a cold?
If I'm on Fluoxitine what can I take for a bad cough associate with a cold or strep?

Coughing, coughing, and more coughing IS the problem. Lozenes and hot drinks don't cut it! Need some kind of serious cough suppresant tha can be taken with Prozac. Is the drug interaction rare as I do know people who take Nyquil,Delsum, etc. and have no problem. I am afraid to try it! Help???

Not easily answered ... as you rightly mention cough suppressants are not advisable to those patients taking Prozac.
A nasal decongestant and acetaminophen combination tablet or a nasal decongestant spray may be of benefit, and are safe. Talk with your pharmacist. Honey and lemon drinks are good to soothe an irritated throat as are soothing throat lozenges.
Take a water bottle to bed with you and sip frequently. Try adding an extra pillow.
