I'm looking at the package insert for Emsam (in every box), specifically the 'Contraindications' and 'Use with other drugs affecting monoamine activity' sections which give a list of all meds and foods to be avoided while on Emsam. This is what meds to avoid for colds specifically:

1.)Meds that contain dextromethorphan (antitussive agent).

2.)Meds called sympathomimetic amines, including amphetamines as well as cold products containing vasoconstrictors like pseudoephedrine, phenylephrine, ephedrine and phenylpropanolamine.

So that is the official Emsam warning list for cold preparations.
