I have a bad cold where I am coughing and all stuffed up and when I take anything with phenylephrine hcl or dextromethorphan in it I become very sick. I get nauseous, dizzy, irritable, and then start vomiting and having diarrhea and stomach cramps. While trying to find some relief from this cold I realized most medications that have a nasal decongestant has phenylephrine hcl. What medication is there to treat my symptoms that won't interact with the Zoloft?
I'm a firm believer in simple as you can. Salt water drops in your nose will help. Taking a hot shower with lots of steam of will help. You can take plain mucinex to thin out the mucous and drink allot of water too.
I take Alka Selter Cold Plus, for Congestion also if needed. I have no problems.
