Laryngitis over the counter medication

Common Questions and Answers about Laryngitis over the counter medication


Avatar n tn What do you recommend for my sinuses other than over the counter, or perscribed medication...something homeopathic would be nice.
Avatar m tn If you have stopped taking it and are still experiencing itching, you can actually use the over-the-counter medication that women use to treat yeast infections which is Monistat. You can apply it to the infected area on your penis.
Avatar n tn I don't know whether this helps any but I had tried for a while (after consulting the doctor) taking over-the-counter allergy sinus pills because I felt congested in my chest area. I got the feeling that it was helping but really don't know if it was. I'm wondering if I could have allergies and not be aware of it as I have a family history of allergies. I don't think that the Zantac is doing anything at all as I do not feel I have acid reflux.
Avatar m tn All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good. None of them seem to relate to the closure of the windpipe and cant give me a straight answer when I ask them. Has anyone an answer or better still has anyone else had this problem.
Avatar n tn It is available over the counter at drug stores. It is Guaifenesen, which is the basic component of some expectorant-type cough medicines, but without all the other ingredients. I have had medical doctors and pharmacists tell me this is a very begnign product with no side effects that can be used every day if needed. Take with a large quantitiy of water, as the instructions say. This has worked wonders for me. Good luck.
Avatar f tn This should be taken empty stomach in the morning. Along with it you can try over the counter antacids. However I would recommend you see a doctor and take medication under a doctor’s supervision. Avoid heavy meals and eat frequent small meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, smoking, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. Avoid heavy exercises within 4 hours of a heavy meal. Raise the head end of the bed by pillows to 30 degrees.
Avatar f tn Lovaza is very expensive and doesn't work any better than any decent fish oil product you can by over the counter to lower Triglycerides. Talk to your doctor about it, but I am sure that Lovaza is causing your problem. Lovaza SIDE EFFECTS Body as a Whole: Enlarged abdomen, asthenia, body odor, chest pain, chills, suicide, fever, generalized edema, fungal infection, malaise, neck pain, neoplasm, rheumatoid arthritis, and sudden death.
242516 tn?1368227505 org/health_chats/register/34 ] ] ] ] The pandemic H1N1 flu (aka “swine flu”) began in April, and circulated in daycares, schools and camps over the summer but dropped off until very recently increasing to widespread levels again in many states. Virtually all the flu around now is the pandemic H1N1 virus. The H1N1 virus also predominated in the recent winter months of the Southern Hemisphere, which typically spreads north as we have our winter.
Avatar f tn Using a humidifier or standing in a hot shower can help loosen thick secretions in your nose and sinuses. Nasal sprays. Over-the-counter saltwater nasal sprays or drops can help clear your nose and sinuses and keep them moist. Your doctor may also suggest that you use a decongestant nasal spray for a short time. Be careful, though, not to overuse such sprays — you can become dependent on them. Your doctor may prescribe a steroid nasal spray to help reduce swelling in your nose and sinuses.
Avatar m tn Drowsiness is a side effect, but like the huddled masses I was under the false impression over-the-counter means it’s safe and the fine print on the package was too small for any of us to read. Over-the-counter really means the side affects are so subtle you will have trouble suing the drug companies. In the case of Benadryl, try and bring a lawsuit against Warner Lambert Consumer Healthcare for a drug that treats some for sinus congestion and others for the opposite, a runny nose.
Avatar f tn IF necessary, and only IF, you can add the over the counter mucolytic (meaning mucous dissolving) medication called guaifenesin aka Mucinex.
Avatar n tn Try 1% clotrimazole cream (athletes foot/jock itch), over the counter. If your very red and inflamed use 1% cortisone cream, over the counter, until redness is gone, continue with clotrimazone. Prescription Lotrisone is too strong, not to be used on your face. Cut the sugar. Mae sure you're not iron-deficient. Buy good probiotics, ESPECIALLY if you'r taking or have taken antibiotics, or eat tons of FRESH, not canned, sauerkraut.
Avatar m tn while antibiotics kill bad bacteria you also have good bacteria in your immune system in your gut and the antibiotics kill those also; so to counter this and to boost the immune system= Pro-biotics can be bought at vitamin store and the more antibiotics u take the more pro-biotics u need MUST SEPARATE TIME OF DAY BY 3 HR otherwise they just cancel each other out.
Avatar n tn It's pretty embarrasing to cough like this, and your bladder becomes weak. I have tried the mucinex, its not bad for an over the counter. However, I am still coughing.
Avatar n tn As for seeking relief right now, use hydrocortisone cream (over the counter). Apply it to the itchy area. The itching should go away immediately. But just because you can control the itch, don't give up on seeking a diagnosis.
Avatar f tn I threw the straw and picked up the phone and hit a speed dial number (a friend), but I had no air so I could make no sound. I banged the phone on the counter, but she didn't get it. I realized that I was near losing consciousness and things were going kindof dark. I am not a holy roller or even a religious person, though I try to practice in my own way. Out of nowhere I prayed in my head, "God, please save me.
Avatar n tn I'm told the cough is particularly piercing over the phone, so I've gotten in the habit of covering the mouthpiece and moving it away. I hope if any of us find a cure, they post! Thank you all for your post and letting me know that at least I'm not alone in this.
Avatar n tn You will probably be put on some medication to help you cope, but understand that the med does not cure whatever is causing the panic. If the cause is something temporary, like a family crisis or something else that will come to an end, then you'll recover as the crisis passes. But if your symptoms seem to come out of nowhere or for no reason, or became worse and include new and different problems, the prime movers may be deeper, and that probably means ... 3. therapy.
Avatar n tn my nose felt better but the Allegra really didn't cut it. I went to the pharmacy and bought every over the counter allergy med. I could buy. Praying that something would work. I took some Chlortrimaton one afternoon... and within about 10 minutes... my head started crackling and popping and opening up. It was the best! Within a couple of days the lowgrade fever feeling, the body aches and fatigue were gone. Tavist also seems to work pretty well...
436516 tn?1382388265 I have suffered with some sort of cough all my life (my G'ma thought I had TB ~ I don't). As I have gotten older it has changed. First, it only happened in cold weather months (from Oct - April). Then it just would come and go. The only thing that would relieve the cough was a steroid but it would come back every year. Lungs were always clear on x-rays & by the time I got into a specialist the cough would be gone. This time is different....
Avatar f tn I am so glad your ANA was normal and sympathize with you over the worry-they ran the same things on me...I am still having some issues with the chest squeezing too and read on a site "ask md" that burning in arms, back, chest and throat are all common with severe reflux "Acid reflux disease can cause chest pain beneath the breastbone. This can feel like a squeezing or burning. It can spread to the back, neck, jaws, or arms. The pain can last for just a few minutes or for hours.
Avatar n tn I have had tests and lots of lab work, I've tried synthetic hormones which I am taking now which scare me considering their link to cancer and my family history. I've tried creams, bio-identical compounded hormones and over the counter herbs and supplements. I practice yoga regularly for years and mediate and have used acupuncture when I can. Why don't healthcare practitioners know anything about this or take it like "oh well, ***** for you, at least it's not terminal"?
Avatar n tn Eustachian tube (ET) dysfunction is very frustrating, just look at all of the people suffering on this page Saline nasal rinse (over the counter), prescription nasal steroids are the cornerstone of treatment, since it stops nasal mucous from draining down the back of the throat (post-nasal drip) and swelling up the exit hole of the ET When chronic, helpful treamtents can include allergy shots, nasal anticholinergics (atrovent), sinus surgery (if a CT scan shows blocked ostia), tympanostomy tub
Avatar n tn Am I the only one who gets the popping when putting pressure on the tragus over the ear canal, but not when merely covering the ear canal with the tragus? Or is that something all of you experience? I'd really like to know, so please post the results!
Avatar n tn So far it is helping.
Avatar n tn Fishman treated him with a prescriptive drug, an over the counter remedy (as recommended by the lab) and many nutritional supplements, not an antibiotic. Dr. Lisk had a cat scan done, which showed all of my son's sinus cavity was infected. Dr. Lisk did do surgery for him. He got well!
