What happens if I miss a dose (Corzall Plus, Zotex-D)?
Since cold or allergy medicine is often taken as needed, you may not be on a dosing schedule. If you are taking the medication regularly, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, wait until then to take the medicine and skip the missed dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
What happens if I overdose (Corzall Plus, Zotex-D)?
Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine.
Overdose can cause restlessness, feeling excited, confusion, hallucinations, extreme drowsiness, fainting, or seizure (convulsions).
What should I avoid while taking carbetapentane, pseudoephedrine, and pyrilamine (Corzall Plus, Zotex-D)?
