Avatar n tn I was sick for 9 days with a very bad cold or a sinus infection. I took over the counter medicine, and after getting better, now I have a sore throat, and I feel like I still have mucus in my throat. What does this mean? Or what it might be?
Avatar n tn But, I would like to know if there is an over the counter medicine. I only get the urgency after a little stress. It stops after 10 hours or so on it's own. But, a cheaper "as needed" OTC medicine would sure be something I am interested in.
Avatar n tn You can use the over the counter medicine like monistat. I had a yeast infection many times both pregnancies and my doctor said it was safe to use the over the counter creams.
Avatar f tn My ob gave a list of over the counter meds to take during pregnancy. Tylenol severe cold and flu is safe in all trimesters so is mucinex.
Avatar f tn yes yes, I am clean from Vicoden, Antidepresants but still am using a sleep aid, have been using over the counter meds for sleep since the 80's then went to prescription sleep aid and now I only sleep 3 or 4 hours using them.

Avatar f tn I have a cold an taking no medicine is killing me. Is there Any over the counter meds I can take?
Avatar f tn If you are feeling uncomfortable with cough,take over the counter cough suppressants. Also use throat lozenges or throat sprays.They are available over the counter. Antibiotics are needed if bacterial pharyngitis is diagnosed. Regarding your IUD,well the bleeding and abdominal cramps don’t seem to have any relation to the URI symptoms that you are having.For this you need to get yourself properly evaluated from a gynecologist.

Avatar m tn Does he have a cold? Snot in his nose might be draining into his throat making him trying to clear it to comfort the uncomfortable sensation, and it might be hard to breath in that case. If you notice drainage in the nose give him some over the counter medicine. If it doesn't clear up bring him to the doctor.
Avatar f tn Now four days into taking the antibiotics and a strong dose of Advil over the counter medicine the swelling has went down a little bit, and also my jaw will not open.
Avatar n tn My family doctor (whose not STI focused) mentioned that Valtrex and its generic counterpart might be deregulated as an over-the-counter drug within in the next two years......this is in Canada; I'm not entirely sure about US or the UK.... The only downside is that once a drug is deemed over-the-counter, it is no longer considered an eligible benefit under extended medical plans. Those drugs require a prescription.
Avatar n tn Finally if going to the bathroom is painful run water over the area, urinate in a tub or shower. All these help to dilute the acid in the urine. If you have a lesion in an area that is causing a lot of pain and if it is so positioned that by putting a finger or two on it then put some thing on your hand and cover the area by pressing down and covering the area which will make it less painful to go to the bathroom. To make you feel better as well bath in either Aveeno or Epson (sp?
Avatar n tn I sincerely advise you to consult a pediatrician and pls do not use any over the counter medicine without informing his pediatrician as it may aggravate the condition.Meanwhile you can apply calamine lotion on the rash as it helps in soothing the skin.

Avatar f tn Tea, lemon, halls, a humidifier, and lots of rest. I had a terrible cold went to the Er and they told me I couldn't use any over the counter drugs. They sent me home with a inhaler.
Cat I cannot offer specific treatment recommendations of individual patients. Most over the counter cold medicines will offer minimal benefit for your symptoms. In my practice, I recommend mucinex to help loosen a cough, plenty of fluids, stay warm, rest and keep me informed if a patient's symptoms worsen. Pneumonia can mimic the flu in some patients so be sure to get checked out by your physician. Hope you are feeling better!
Avatar f tn Add some Vick or Olbas oil to the water. Bend your head over the bowl and cover your head and the bowl wit a towel. Breathe in the steam through your nose and out through your mouth. Do this 4 times a day for a duration of 10 minutes each time. Doing this will help to loosen up the congestion and unblock your sinuses and Eustachian tube. Keep warm. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn There is no specific medicine (over the counter or prescription) that works well.
Avatar f tn Dear Eye Physician: I recently used eye drops (Systane Preservative Free) and I developed an eye infection. The doctor had to prescribe a antibiotic-steroid drop and bacitracin for my eyes to get rid of the infection. I'm finally over the infection. I'm afraid to use anymore eye drops for dry eyes. What do you suggest as I already take fish oil and flax seed oil.
Avatar f tn I was told that it is virus infection and was given Amocilin antibiotic course and cough medicine. The cough has now subsided but occasional coughs. I then had stomach pain and nausea. To make it worse, I have pain in my right hand side rib, just under my breast. When I cough or lay down or move my right hand side, my rib hurts. My stomach pain and nausea has reduced but the pain in the rib is still there when cough to clear throat or moving. Can you please advise.
