Customer Question
Can u take sudafed...

Can u take sudafed if you have a concussion?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes Tylenol and ibuprofen.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Nothing daily. It is my son he is 12.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No he has 2 concussions in a year, my Dr is aware. His nose stopped up tonight and he asked for sudafed. This is his 2nd concussion in a year. Pretty healthy otherwise.

Hello and welcome I'm Dr Chip

No problem with the sudafed in this case--the concussions would not be a contraindication for taking it for the stuffy nose

If I were his doctor I'd tell you I had no problem with his taking it

Please let me know if you need any more information

He has had a headache, with light sensitivity for 5 days. We went to his doctor on Monday. At what point do I need to take him back in? We are treating him with Tylenol and ibuprofen plus resting. I am not seeing any improvement.
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 1 year ago

The sudafed may actually improve his headache which sounds like a severe migraine

But at this point, he needs to see his doctor again for an evaluation

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
