Our expert says:
Regarding your cold and flu meds - your allergy is probably to pseudoephedrin and related decongestant drugs - you need to reduce your dose when taking these drugs, or avoid them completely. Cough mixtures may have a related stimulant effect causing your symptoms. I'm not aware of any service available to test for these sort of sensitivity reactions to drugs - Best would be to inform your doctor/pharmacist (not a pharmacy assistant) that you are sensive to these groups of drugs and ask him/her to prescribe something that would not cause these effects. What is your reaction the the injections administered by your dentists? Do you have a product name available?
