Brief Answer: Use PPI with mucolytics and antiseptic gargles Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. You are having throat pain at night and in the morning with thick phlegm and have already taken ZIFI 200mg with no relief. Please use a mucolytic preparation like Acocontin 75 mg (Ambroxal) once daily along with Omeprazole 20 mg (Ocid) twice daily. Also use Lidocam gargles after diluting it in 1:1 ration with plane water. If Lidocam is not available at your place, use hexidine gargles after diluting it with water. If you are not having any fever and have already used ZIFI, there is no need to use an antibiotic. Please use above mentioned medicines for 7 days and gargles for 3 weeks. Avoid excessive tea, coffee and oily, spicy & junk food. Feel free to ask another query. Regards

Brief Answer: Descriptive Detailed Answer: Thanks for the query. It can be partly because of the same problem and partly because of issue with your muscles around jaw with can become a bit stiff in infection around the throat region. Should go with in few days. You can add an analgesic like paracetamol for 2-3 days to the medicines I have already written. The thick phlegm should become thin with time with acocontin and steam inhalation. Feel free to ask another query. Regards
