Taking medicines for acute pharyngitis, persisting severe headaches. Medicines?
Hi today i went to my doctor because iv'e had these horrible headaches that lasted for two day,fever,nausea,and vomiting and they told me i had pharyngitis,acute and she put me in antibiotics, she gave me amoxcillin and i told her that iv'e been taking advil to control the headache but it just doesn't go away so i was wondering what medicne i could take that acts fast and gets rid of it while im taking the antibiotics.
Hi, Headaches occurring with an upper respiratory infection can be severe. I would suggest continuing with the Advil as this contains ibuprofen which has anti-inflammatory effects. Add paracetamol which is safe to be taken together with Advil. Steam inhalations 3-4 times a day will help reduce the congestion in your throat. Ephedrine containing preparations will also help and your pharmacist can advise on the most appropriate. Continue the amoxicillin as you need to complete the whole course and and antibiotics may take a few days to produce an improvement. Drink plenty of fluids to maintain your hydration. I hope you make a speedy recovery. Best regards.
