OTC medication that works with Rythmodan 100mg
My son aged 12 takes Rythmodan 100mg capsules 3 times a day as he has arrythmias. He also suffers from asthma which he is being treated for.

My problem lies in the fact that I do not know what over the counter medication I can give him when he gets a headache, fever or cold.

Please can you advise me on what I am able to give him that will not cancel out the Rythmodan

Many thanks
