  • You should be able to call your pharmacist and they should be able to answer this question.

  • It should be fine, they are 2 different meds that work in different ways and shouldnt interfere, but call the pharmacist just to be sure....... also, I dont know if your son is anything like my daughter, but when her allergy meds arent working well enough, or when there is extra crap in the air she always gets that nasty cough. Sometimes she needs an inhaler to help, especially when that cough becomes intractable (wont stop, cant catch her breath) That usually helps her, just in case you think he needs something else, you can ask his doc. Good luck, hope he feels better

  • Call the pharmacist before you mix drugs. NEVER mix drugs without asking first. You never know what reaction might happen.
