  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I had a cough and fever, went to the doctor and they tested me for influenza type a and b, the result was negative. My fever was 101.8. The doctor prescribe Tamiflu because I have the flu like symptoms a little over 24hrs. I took the medication and my fever was gone. I returned to the doctor because I had a cough and he said I have a respiratory infection. He prescribe Mucinex and azithromycin. I felt lightheaded a few days on these medications and return to the doctor who told me to stop taking the Mucinex DM. I just finished taking my antibiotic which was the 5 days treatment and still feeling Lightheaded. Not sure what is causing this feeling. Keep in mind I was done with the Tamiflu the day before I started to take the antibiotic. Please Help

  • when I catch cold/cough it lingers 2 months. I recently had chest Xray and the result is normal. it seems to me the driver of my cough is my throat irritates some time. My doctor is planning to change blood pressure medicine (carvidilol) to another one perhaps next week.
