No fever, no chills, had slight coughing in the morning when he got up. Gave him warm water with honey. All was well all day long. The throat hurt started an hour back.

Detail Follows.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX
In such scenario I would advise for symptomatic relief following:
1. To gargle with 2 tablets of disprin in XXXXXXX warm water.
2. To give him Tablet Paracetamol 500 mg single dose.
3. Give him plenty of warm fluids like soup, tea.
This would give him symptomatic relief till tomorrow morning when you can consult a doctor for his throat examination and further treatment.
In the morning when he would get up GE would have maximum pain. Don't panic that time. Give him same treatment in the morning and consult a doctor.
If you have any further query please ask me else close the discussion and rate it.
Stay Healthy.

I am in the phillipines now and got a general checkup. My heart ecg is normal and my kidney function is normal but my bp was elevated to 180/100. I have a bp monitor in my hotel and it never registers over 150/100 and normally it is around 140/90. After exercise it drops to 120/75 or 130/80. I have been administered amolopidine 10mg. I dont live here and I am going to Japan on Saturday where I live. I dont want to get hooked on any drug and I have taken this drug for the past 2 days. I am also under great anxiety now so I believe that is the biggest reason. Is it good to continue with the drug course or wait till I get to Japan to continue extra drugs .
