Tylenol Cold?

So, I've been fighting a cold for a few days now. I have an appointment this tuesday, so I'm trying to hold off going to a doctor. Before I was just sneezing with a stuffy/runny nose, this morning I wake up really congested... I go to walmart, and even the tylenol cold pills tell you to consult a doctor before using. I asked the pharmacy tech and the bitty was rude, wouldn't tell me, and the hospital won't disclose any information over the phone. So I bought candy-fied cough drops and have been eating them like crazy. I can now breath through my nose, but still feel crappy... Does anyone know what kind of cold medicine I can take? If I could just go back to bed and sleep it off I would, but that's hard with a two year old =-)

  • Do you have fever? You may need to see a doc tomorrow if you didn't get better today.

  • I was told to only take Sudafed. Can you call your doctors office and ask for a nurse to call you?? They can generally ask the doc and let you know, no cost.
