My DR recommended Advil cold and sinus to help ease my head cold symptoms.

I haven't been able to keep my Bg above 60 since about 45 minutes after I took it. I've been drinking Gatorade and eating honey by the spoonful. I just ate a chicken sandwich for lunch… We will see from here.

Anyone ever had similar reactions to cold meds??

I have been taking Robitussin with no problems. I use both regular and sugar free cough and cold medications.

I'm glad you mentioned sugar free cough syrups. I hadn't even thought about the sugars in that. Time to go clean out my medicine cabinet.

Make sure you empty the bottles and wash them out before disposal.

My local fire dept/ems has a year round medicine turn-in program. I always take my expired prescription meds there since they know how to properly dispose of each kind. OTC stuff that isn't expired I ask neighbors if they need. I live in a rural area and some have a hard time getting to the store and/or affording meds.

We have that here with the local Police Departments. It is acutally funded by the DEA. I think it is incinerated.

That is good that you do that. People need so much these days.
