Brief Answer:
Pantoprazole and Listerine will help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir

I can certainly understand your concern.

You possibly seem to have antibiotic associated minor side effects.

This can be effectively treated with oral pills of Pantoprazole 40 mg once a day on empty stomach daily for 21 days.

Additionally mouth wash like Listerine can help to prevent infection of the ulcered areas.

Please check with your physician if he shares my view and if can prescribe these pills to you.

Post your further questions if any.
Thank you.

Thank you sir.

My city(Hyderabad) and state(Telangana) is flooded since last 3 days which will continue for more 3-4days per whether forecast reports and I can't meet my doctor and his office does not give his personal number as he's out somewhere, hence approached this site.

To your above advise of Pantoprazole 40mg should I take it with Tetracycline(Restecline 500mg that I take 1 dose at 9am and one at 9pm both before a meal) or before lunch(I take at 3pm)

Lastly, I'm also getting dry cough, I'm using warm salted water gargle which helps for a while but not long. Any advice of a medicine along with the restecline 500mg dosage & time?

Thank you very much for your help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

I can certainly understand your concern.

Pantoprazole has to be taken daily at 7 am on empty stomach.

This can be taken with tetracycline as well.

For dry cough, I advise syrup Tusq D 2 to 3 times a day.

Please check with your physician if he shares my view and if can prescribe these medications to you.

Thank you.
