Cold Medicine & Hypothyroid...

Just wondering...what do you take when you have a cold? I know better than to take Sudafed...I do take Sudafed PE but was wondering about
Claritin,NyQuil or do you take Benadryl instead? I am taking Levoxyl for my hypothyroid.

Cold medicines are not a problem if you are hypothyroid, only if you are hyperthyroid, you can take anything that works for you...

I'm hypo, but have had a few hyper symptoms like rapid heartbeat. I took Sudafed (tried both the strong and PE) and they both left me feeling really out of it and I had heart palps. Everyone reacts differently.
