If you have a cold and still want to exercise you may want to skip the cold medications.
(----------------)
VO-NAT


Doctors reporting in the Journal "The Physician and Sports Medicine" say combining exercise with many of the over-the-counter and prescription cold medications can make the side-effects worse.
Some medications can raise the resting heart rate and others can cause
drowsiness---adding exercise to this can make the side effects more

pronounced.
The doctors also say--if you have symptoms such as a runny nose and sneezing it's probably okay to exercise.
But with symptoms such as a fever, deep cough or chest pain-- you should forget the workout.
