Can I mix Robafen DM (cough suppressant much like Robitussin), Sudafed, and IbProufen? I was given Robafen to reduce a cough I had, Sudafed to reduce my severe nasal congestion, and Ibprofuen to reduce the swelling in my sore throat. I was told I could have all 3 at once but I wanted to reconfirm with someone on here. Promptest possible responses are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I am not familiar with your cough suppressant but if it has a decongestant in it (read the ingredients), I would not mix it with Sudafed which has more of the same. Guaifanesin and pseudoephedrine in two separate products taken around the same time could not only make you dizzy or put you to sleep, but could cause other health problems. Just read your cough medicine label.
That is fine then. As long as you are not taking two decongestants at once or two medications with the same ingredients so that you do not overdose. A lot of cough medicines have decongestant in them and that is mainly what Sudafed is, so I wanted you to be sure.
Yes, you can take the three of those together. Is that what the doctor told you to take at your appointment? It's OK. One is for your throat. One is for the nose(sudafed) and the Iuorofen is for the pain. They will all do their jobs and you will feel better soon! Good luck! and get plenty of rest.
