Oh boy, just came down with a head cold on Friday. It's getting bad with running nose, head congestion and now coughing. Can anyone tell me what's safe to take. I had a cryoblation done on July 21, 2016 and am only taking Eliquis. I'm terrified of going back into afib by taking some cold medication, but I feel like I've been run over by a truck. Doctor's office never calls back... too many patients, not enough office help apparently. Can you guys tell me what you take? Last year before I knew I had AFIB, my doctor prescribed Hydrocodone/CPM Susp (Generic for Tussionex Pennkineti) to take. Is it safe??
