Hi Doctors,
I have been suffering from dry cough for 3.5 weeks now. Recently, I have done the health checkup which shows no sign of abnormality :). My blood pressure was perfect( 120/80) and did an x'ray of chest which was in perfect safe.
Doctor has suggested me to take three drugs: Rapitus, Feza 180 and AZT 500 (which I am taking for last 5 days) and staying away from curd and fruits (which I am following). But so far I don't see any significant recovery.

I want to know what each drug is for and its side effects as well as suggestion.

Thank You

doctor1 MD

Running nose, cough, chest pain etc are suggestive of rhinitis and bronchitis.
Both are commonly seen in viral infection.
So better to consult...
