Suggest Treatment For Headache And Influenza

I am getting over the flu but every time I cough I have severe head pains. I was diagnosed with the flu Sunday and am on my last tamiflu. Most flu symptoms are done ie fatigue, body aches and fever but when I cough I feel as though my head is going to explode.

Dear Patient! I thank you for sharing your concerns with us on HCM!

Head Ache when you cough may be caused by a complication of the flu that is called sinusitis, an inflammation or congestion of head sinuses. So if this is the issue you have to take medications to treat sinusitis by your doctor. Just have a meeting with your treating doctor.

I hope you'll get fast relief.
All the best!

Dear user,

I really understand your concern.

If the symptoms persist more than one week, check for pneumonia.

For your cough I would prescribe coideine phosphat 30 mg four times daily, (it also will helps with the pain).

Take Advil 400 mg 2 to 3 times daily for severe headache.


Wish you all the best!
