I've read that anything with a decongestant can cause a severe reaction, but I have an ear ache & sore throat and could really use something.
What can you take for a cold while on 50mgs of Trazodone?

I have been taking Trazondone for 4 years, and I never knew taking pseudophed or any cold remedies was a problem, never has been with me. I have always had a stuffy nose. I don't know why a Zinc lozenge would be perfect, ... Also,I take a Zinc tab every am, part of my regimin to fight off colds. Hot Green Tea is good for your ear Ache and throat, as well as disolving 2 bayer aspirin on your tounge slowly, as horrible as that is, or sounds, it always worked for me. 2 aspirin every 4 hours will make you fell better during the cold.
I have just spoken with my Pharmacist on this very matter. I take ativan and 50mg of trazodone. And I have a horrible head and chest cold. She looked up on their computer, then told me I could take any cold medicine I chose. I was surprised, but happy, now hopefully I can get some relief. Just another point of view from a different pharmacist. So PLEASE always ask your pharmacist, before taking any advice on your meds and what can or cannot be taken together. Good health to all.
