Ask a doctor or pharmacist before using any cold, allergy, or pain medicine. Many medicines available over the counter contain salicylates or NSAIDs. Taking certain products together can cause you to get too much of a certain drug. Check the label to see if a medicine contains aspirin, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, naproxen, or a salicylate.
