Customer Question
Hi, I just started...

Hi, I just started taking 10 mg of Prozac. Today is my day 2. I just took two pills of Mucinex for my cold that I have. I notice that there are some possible interactions. What should I do? I took the prozac this morning at 8 am and it is now 5 pm when I took the mucinex.

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

Prozac 10 mg

Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.If you are taking the Mucinex containing Phenylepherine along with the Prozac,there is a serious interaction between the two drugs.There is elevation in the serotinin levels which may be dangerous.It would be best to discontinue the mucinex.Use of simple steam inhalations and Tylenol should be enough to tide over the 4 days remaining of the common cold.If it persists,discuss this with your PCP who may prescribe an antihistamije like Allegra which will help.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
