Does Co-amoxiclav help cure dry cough?
I took amoxyclav 625 500mg +125mg. taken one this and one paracetamol in morning . with tusqd for dry cough .
is it fine ?
looks like a strong medication than required .
present the situation is cough and roughness in throt no fever as of now . and little nose block .
what medication shall I continue
Kindly tell details about your symptoms
Thanks for your query.
I also feel that amoxyclav 625 may be unnecessary. Its an antibiotic and should not be prescribed for common cold, flu and allergies.
Kindly let me know details about your symptoms, so that I am better able to help.
Paracetamol is for fever and should not be taken in absence of fever.
Tusq D alone may be continued for dry cough. Avoid any dust, polluted air or any other allergen.
Hope it helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
was taking tasqd and paracitamol only if fever . this was continue for sat sun Monday
amoxy and para i took today morning
present condition - not taken anything after that . fever is not there but dry cough and block nose is still there.
what can i take now to continue with the medications.
Steam inhalation will help
Since tusq d alone is not helping, you can add Dabur Honitus syrup which is soothing to throat.
Steam inhalation will also help.
Since you have already started antibiotic amoxyclav, you can continue it for 3 days.
Paracetamol is not needed, since there is no fever.
Since it started with fever, it will probably get better in 5-6 days time.
Three doses for amoxyclav
Amoxyclav comes in 3 doses - 250 mg, 500 mg and 1 g. You can take 250 mg twice a day for 3 days.
Since its been more than 5 days, I suggest that you get blood test done called complete blood count. It may be helpful in suggesting something.
If its viral, it does take 5-10 days to recover.
