Question: Hello Doctor,

About 10 days ago I got fever along with severe cold and throat pain. I took the usual Calpol and Levo Citrezine to control fever and cold, after 4-5 days the fever subsided but since yesterday the cold and soar throat is back again. Is there any antibiotics that I can take to completely get better? this is taking too long and I feel completely drained out with low energy levels.
I am 37 yrs old male

Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I have gone through your query.

You can take tab. azee 500 mg once daily after food for 3 days. Drink plenty of water. Warm lemon juice with 1 tbsp of honey for 1 week helps soothe your sore throat.

I hope this answered your query.

Brief Answer:
It doesn't make you drowsy.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again,

You can take it after breakfast at home. So that you will sleep and get rest. It doesn't make you drowsy but can make you feel tired as its an antibiotic. Eat well and drink plenty of fluids. You can take it after dinner or breakfast as you feel comfortable.

I hope this answered your query.

I had a bad cold/flu in August 2012 it cleared up but I got another cold soon after this underlying sense of something not quite right with my lungs has continued. Over the past 3 months i have had cold feet which started with chilblains on both feet, something I have never had before. The cold feet and also tingling in my feet is continuing along with a sense that there is something not right with my lungs. I am 54 yrs old male fit and can still exercise although sometimes my throat becomes dry when breathing hard and can lead to a sore throat which passes quickly. I also have a back issue from playing golf and tennis and sitting down a lot in my work. I have addressed this by stopping these sports and sitting upright. I have most recently thought could i have chronic low level pneomonia. I also think stress could play a part so I am working less and resting more and meditating more.
Can you let me know what you think? I have had blood tests, heart listened to etc at the doctors all come out as no problem. Thanks
