How can i help you?

User :   As you have suggested, I did try to cough as much as possible yesterday morning. Though, I got mild sore throat kind of problem, I did not get cough later till night.
Doctor :   ok

User :   Also, I started doing some home exercises like push ups, sit ups, etc. Now, I am feeling much better. I am not getting cough in the day time at all.
Doctor :  
thats good
User :   Now, I want to discuss about different problem i.e. allergy.
Doctor :  
User :   Last time when I went to home, I visited a specialist doctor. He advised me to take the Conee-10 and Concet L tablets for 20 and 15 days respectively.
User :   Here, home means my home town.
Doctor :  
User :   My home town is Kurnool, A.P.
User :   Can I start taking the above tablets?
User :   How helpful the above tablets are to my allergy problems?
Doctor :   allergy is a bodys hyper response of immune system
Doctor :  
and the above tablets provide you relief from the symptoms of the allergic effects
User :   Doctor told me that I will not face frequent allergic problems after using the above tablets. Is it not true?
Doctor :   he is right you will not face the frequent problems of allergies

Doctor :   what it means is
Doctor :   say you are suffering allergy problems for 10 times a month
User :   ok
Doctor :   use of the drugs will reduce the incidence to 4 to 6 per month
Doctor :   or less
Doctor :  
what i said is just an example to make you understand
User :   ok
User :   Shall I start going through the above course?
Doctor :   yes you can
User :   Will the above tablets have any side effects?
Doctor :   the side effects may be increase in bowel movements and some amount of drowsiness
Doctor :   this will not be a major problem as it will pass of by itself in few days
User :   OK
Doctor :  
is there any thing else i can help you with?
User :   Yes, regarding cough during sleep.
Doctor :   ok

User :   If I sleep upwards (by keeping the face upwards) then I get cough. If I sleep sideways then I am not getting cough. Can you please give your suggestions?
Doctor :   during the process of sleeping in the upwards there will be a tongue fall to the throat due to the relaxation of the muscles during sleep

Doctor :   this will reduce the air passage and in course of time you will get cough
User :   ok
Doctor :  
sleeping the face to sidewards will not have this problem of tongue falling back so the air passage is kept patent hence less chances of getting cough
User :   Shall I continue sleeping sidewards if I get cough in upwards direction?
Doctor :   the position with which you are comfortable you can continue to sleep

Doctor :  
if you are comfortable with face sidewards with no or less cough than you can continue to sleep with the face sidewards
User :   ok
User :   BTW, I did not take the syrup that you suggested for cough because I started getting better from yesterday.
Doctor :   no need to take the syrup if you are getting better with out medications

Doctor :  
it is a good sign
User :   OK. I do not have anything else to ask. Thanks for your suggestions.
Doctor :  
please fill the feed back form
Doctor :  
thanks for consulting healthcare magic
User :   Done
User :   Bye.
