I have a cold...

I have a cold with lots of phlegm that makes me cough, no fever, I'm 66, female, no health problems like hypertension or diabetes. Is it OK to take both a 12 hour Sudafed and Robitussin Nighttime Cough DM? I had to sleep sitting up in the recliner last night.

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

I had my annual physical in January, my mom had hypertension, mine runs 106/60

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

Take levothyroxine

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.

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.
