Re: [IP] what do you take for a cold?

I usually take Coracidin HBP (sp?) I don't notice much rise in my blood
sugar since they are high already from being sick. I used to take Drixoral,
but it would adversely affect my blood pressure, and I did not like that.
Coracidin is pretty good stuff, though (at least in Utah) you now have to
ask for it at the pharmacy. I haven't tried taking any vitamins though. I am
on so many different prescriptions that I am afraid to take vitamin
supplements in case they affect my other meds.
Take care and get better :)
