Are You Treating Cold and Flu Symptoms Safely?

If you take over-the-counter (OTC) cold and flu medicines, keep in mind that many OTC and prescription medicines share the same active ingredients. Taking more than 1 medicine with the same kind of active ingredient at a time can increase your chances of harmful side effects.

To be sure you’re using OTC medicines safely, always read the label and take ONLY 1 medicine that contains the same kind of active ingredient at a time.
