Is it safe or not for me to take Pseudoephedrine HCL 30 mg.

Customer Question
Is it safe or...

Is it safe or not for me to take Pseudoephedrine HCL 30 mg. for my cold. I started taking it yesterday. I just read the tiny print on the box which says DO NOT TAKE if any of my meds contain MAOIs. I have Parkinson's and my medication's are: Carbodopa/Levodopa and Ropinerole. Do either of these contain an MAOI? THANK YOU for answering my question.

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

I take Carbodopa/Levodopa and Ropinerole.

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

I am allergic to Demerol.

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!!
