For a headache take tablet paracetamol as and when required, maximum eight hourly. For muscle spasm and back pain take tablet Chlorzoxazone twelve hourly for 3-5 days. If a cough is dry without expectoration take syrup Dextromethorphan twelve hourly. Associated throat infection requires antibiotics like Levofloxacin. Do salt water gargling. If a cough is associated with expectoration take syrup Bromhexine twelve hourly. If more than two weeks - do sputum examination for tuberculosis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
