My dr never gave me an approved meds list, and I have had an awful sore throat the last 2 days, and it's starting to get unbearable. I've tried all the natural "remedies" and they've all failed...gargling salt water didn't work(where my throat hurt is further down than gargling can reach), drinking hot water didn't work, ice cream/ice cubes didn't work, sucking on hard candies neither. I'm at my wit's end and want to know if there is a cough syrup I can take, or which cough drops I can use...something to get rid of this horrid sore throat...it's getting to the point that I'm having a hard time breathing.
BTW--I REALLY don't want to call the dr's because he's not there and his nurse is a total witch!

There is nothing that works for a sore throat even if you aren't pregnant unless it is something that needs antibiotics or thrush. It's recommended that most strep throats not be treated with antibiotics, they can heal on their own.
