I've been nursing a bad cold since Christmas! And despite all the ads for OTC cold medicines I know that I can't take them. Those of us that takenanti-depressants should be aware of the interactions if you take cold medicine. They can induce drowsiness, sometimes raise heart rates and even death.
So, what's one to do when they have a cold?! Plenty of rest, nasal drops of saline solution, chicken soup or Wor Wonton, and a hot shower is my cold treatment regiment. Achoo!
