Hello! And, thanks for your question. I'm DrMike, a pharmacist with over 20 year’s experience, and I'm glad to help you today. I’ll just take some time while I review your question and get back to you with a response. I may have some initial questions for you…

Ask Your Own Pharmacy Question

The 'Mucinex' that you are referring to, is it straight guaifenesin? Or does it contain other active ingredients? (like dextromethorphan or pseudoephedrine or phenylephrine, etc - listed under the active ingredients with the guaifenesin - this is quite important).

Phenylephrine

Ok, and, I have to ask the same of the Zicam? Straight Zinc? Lozenges or nasal spray, what-have-you... just want to ensure there are no other active ingredients in there...

Ask Your Own Pharmacy Question

Tikosyn has some potentially major drug interactions as I'm sure you're aware, so I apologize for the seemingly trivial questions...

Echinacea The ZicamRapidmelts

Ok, I apologize for your wait...
I have checked multiple sources, and I can find no issue with any of these OTC medications and your Tikosyn.

If you can, separate them from the Tikosyn by a couple hours or so, so the Tikosyn has a chance to be absorbed and do its thing.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

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!!
