When you are sick, special attention should be paid to FODMAPs which are hidden in some medication ingredients. Read the list of ingredients for syrups or lozenges for example, and avoid polyols (sorbitol, isomalt, mannitol, maltitol and xylitol), honey and fructose. Choose syrups and lozenges that contain sucrose, glucose, dextrose, sucralose or other low-FODMAP sweeteners. In addition, you can take Tylenol (acetaminophen) and ibuprofen. And don’t forget to eat good hot meals which are low in FODMAPs to help you get over your cold as quickly as possible.
