  • You can take anything by Tylenol unless doc said different

  • doesnt sound like a flu. thats what i had a few weeks ago.. it was HORRIBLE! i had a fever and horrible cough i hated it. i didnt take anything, but my doctor did tell me i could take dimetapp and robitussin DM and for the cough he said i can use cough drops. they said stay away from nyquil stuff like that of which will make you drowsy.

    but also, you should drink some hot tea, keep your self warm and cozy try not to go from being cold to directly being in the heat then the cold again etc it will make you worse. also a humidifier if you have one may help with your cough and im sure you have a sore throat from that too and it will help that as well. good luck i hope you feel better soon!!

    ps do NOT get a flu shot right now.
