Abstract

Treating the symptoms of colds and flu in patients with concomitant chronic conditions can be a difficult task. Pharmacists have to consider the effects of the medication on the chronic underlying disease, and also the possibility of drug-drug interactions. This article discusses the use of over-the-counter medication for the treatment of cold and flu symptoms in patients with chronic conditions, and important considerations to ensure effective management of these patients.
