Azilect is contraindicated in combination with several drugs, including dextromethorphan and also medications containing amines, including many cough and cold remedies. Combining Azilect with these substances can trigger a hypertensive crisis which could be fatal.
Moreover, patients taking Azilect must avoid foods rich in tyramine such as aged cheese and red wine.
Please check with your physician before taking a decongestant.
Best regards.

Your pharmacist is an excellent resource for these types of questions. They are experts in knowing side effects and interactions between drugs, many times they know more about these kinds of things than physicians do.
