How can I help you?
especially in the night..
Have you taken any treatment for it as yet?
In day times, not much
so please suggest any syrup or tablet dr. where i can quick recovery
A few more questions
Do you have a fever?
And ae you bringing up and sputum at all when you cough?
No fever. Ok. Then I would suggest that we avoid antibiotics for now
not every time, very small in quantity
My preference is that you take syrup TusQ during the day, Morning and Afternoon 1 tablespoon
At Night, You may take Syrup Corex or Syrup TusQ DX, one tablespoon before bed
ok, and at night ?
Never take COrex or TusQ DX during the Day or when you have to drive.
They will make you drowsy
ok then, please suggest common med dr, where i can use in day and in the night as well..
can't i use TusQ in the night?
r u there dr?
My problem with Benadryl is that the active ingredient Diphenhydramine can cause confusion and even agitation in some people
I have prescribed it in the past and had some odd results
But technically, it should be fine
If this cough lasts more than a week from now, we will have to consider getting a chest x-ray and starting nebulizations (inhalation Therapy)
ok then i will go with TusQ
and also my one and half year old baby has also cough, started from today morning.. which med will be better for him?
Hmm, I would be much happier if you avoided any medication for now, instead try steam inhalation therapy
can it be done in home?
Just head to a good pharmacy and buy a ventilation hood
It is like a small plastic roof that you can place above the baby
you place water in a nebulizer and the steam builds up below the hood allowing the baby to breath it in
You can also buy a simple nebulizer and hold the mask up to the baby
ok dr thank you very much
