Cold And Allergy Medicines Question


Recommended Posts

Quick question.

Which cold and which allergy OTC drugs are safe to take if you are currently taking an SSRI (lexapro)? I've had a bad "cold" the past few days and the congestion is really bad. Not sure which ones are safe to take and which work the best.

Thanks for the feedback as always!!

When I was taking Lexapro, I didn't have any issues with my usual go to of Robitussin. But, I think derekliz is right to suggest calling your doc cause I have a feeling regular cold meds will likely affect our BP and HR and could make your POTS symptoms worse.

Hope both of you feel better soon.
