    I'm asthmatic and I didn't know that there were restrictions for OTC medications. I use Nyquil. Works juss fine.

    well, i know that certain OTC's are not recommended for asthmatics because their contents would trigger an attack. I was told to stay away from any meds containing sudafed (not sure of spelling)...but right now i'm too tired and too sick to look at labels...i want a name of a med. so i can walk in...see it and purchase it...that's it.

    SkoolboY tylenol cold & flu really works?

    Aquemini...i haven't tried motrin...as for the inhaler...i've already used it twice in a matter of 4 hours...and i'm not supposed to use it that frequently...if i do that again today I will be rushed to the hospital. So, i need a cold med. fast.

    Nothing works for me, and I'm asthmatic. I was sick two weeks ago. The only thing that worked for me were 4 miles at the track, and a few hot showers. Excercise builds the immune system. Also brings up all the mucus on yuh chest.

    If it's just for ah cold, Nyquil will do... If it's for asthma symtoms, it's ah whole different ball game.

    sometimes when you have a cold it triggers your asthma symptoms and if you are not carful it can be extreamly dangerous.

    Look for something that stops post nasal drip. That is most likely what is causing the cough. If you have heavy mucous build up, try MUCINEX. It works very well for drying you out. And stay heavy on the fluids.

    You may very well need to go to the hospital now if it really is as bad as you say it is.. at this point you may need to be hooked into the oxygen machine...

    Im ok don't worry about me u take care of that asthma .. its not something to mess around with. hope you feel better soon.
