Pharmacy and Medications
I am currently taking 1 Olanzapine 10mg tablet before bed. I have a cold now and was wondering if it was safe to mix Alka-Seltzer Plus night formula with it? I try to be very careful when mixing medications.
There are multiple ingredients in the Alka-Seltzer Plus® Night Cold Formula. None of these ingredients interacts significantly with olanzapine; however, you may experience some additional drowsiness.
