My younger brother gets asthma due to cold allergies. He has allergy medications; I've tried over the counter cough syrups. My question is what are the side effects of the cold Allergy treatments?

    Actifed Cold-Allergy Oral This combination medication is used to temporarily treat runny/stuffy nose and other symptoms (e.g., ear congestion, watery/itchy eyes, itchy throat) caused by allergies, hay fever, the common cold, or other breathing illnesses (e.g., sinusitis). Decongestants help to relieve stuffy nose and ear congestion symptoms. Antihistamines relieve watery eyes, itchy eyes/nose/throat, runny nose, and sneezing.Do not use this medication in children younger than 2 years unless directed by the doctor. To decrease the risk for serious side effects, carefully follow all of the doctor's dosage directions. Do not give other cough and cold medication that might contain the same or similar ingredients (see also Drug Interactions section). Ask your doctor or pharmacist about other ways to relieve cough and cold symptoms (e.g., saline nose drops/spray, using a humidifier or infant nasal suction bulb).
