Can I take Tylenol with Coricidin HBP Chest Congestion And Cough?
Tylenol (acetaminophen) can safely be taken with Coricidin HBP Chest Congestion And Cough, which contains the following active ingredients:
There are no known interactions between these three drugs.
In fact, there are a variety of products available over the counter (OTC) that contain all three, or more. Such products include:
- DayQuil Severe (Acetaminophen; Dextromethorphan; Guaifenesin; Phenylephrine)
- Tylenol Cold And Flu Severe (Acetaminophen; Dextromethorphan; Guaifenesin; Phenylephrine)
As you are inquiring about a Coricidin HBP product specifically, I assume that you are looking for something that is safe to take if you have high blood pressure.
If you do have high blood pressure, you generally want to avoid nasal decongestants, like Sudafed (pseudoephedrine) and Sudafed PE (phenylephrine). These drugs can increase blood pressure and may put you more at risk for heart attack and stroke if your high blood pressure is untreated or uncontrolled.
The 2 products in your question (Tylenol & Coricidin HBP Chest Congestion And Cough) should not affect blood pressure at all.
To give a quick overview on each:
Pain reliever and fever reducer. Acetaminophen is the most common analgesic used in combination ingredient cough/cold products. It is important to keep track of your daily acetaminophen consumption, especially if taking more than one product that contains it. Recommended doses are generally safe and effective but overdoses can lead to liver damage.
Thins and loosens mucus secretions. This allows for easier expectoration. Guaifenesin, which is also the active ingredient in Mucinex, is very well tolerated and actually has no known drug interactions.
Cough expectorant, which is also the active ingredient in Delsym.
Answer SummaryTylenol (acetaminophen) and Coricidin HBP Chest Congestion And Cough (Dextromethorphan; Guaifenesin) are safe to take together.
