Hello - This is Dr. Shaun and I am a pharmacist with over 15 years of experience. Thank you for the question and for using JustAnswer.

The safest cough syrup for you to take with these medications would be something with just guaifenesin in it, such as plain Robitussin. Delsym is good, but can interact with a couple of your medications (trazodone and citalapram), especially when all three are taken together. I would avoid any OTC medications with dextromethorphan if at all possible, or at least stop taking the trazodone while taking Delsym.

Since you are dealing with congestion, the plain Robitussin should work well as it has the ingredient (guaifenesin) that helps break up the congestion.

I hope this information helps you. If you need more or would like clarification, please do not hesitate to ask. Please also take a moment to rate your experience.

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!!
