(For example, I was told not to take decongestants.) I'm assuming the products like NyQuil are contraindicated also. I'm interested in knowing what's left for me to choose from, so if anyone could compile list of these, I would be grateful.

It depends entirely on the medication. Be careful of dextromethorphan (cough suppressant) as you can get increased levels of this with some meds such as Prozac. As far as I know decongestants are only a problem with MAOIs.

I've heard good things about echinacea but have no idea why that should be safer than all the miscellaneous stuff I can't take. The zinc supplements are probably okay but I hear their efficacy is being called into question.
