Lady680:  zinc? One of the best immune-boosters I know. also, I love the airborne that’s made for warm water, and it seriously kicked me out of my illness before I got married last week.

Lady680:  i would have a humidifier running constantly and drink Breathe Easy tea by Traditional Medicinals (whole foods or it’s ilk will have it) seep it covered for 10 minutes so it gets strong- it will help your discomfort in the lungs and throat.

I would also take the antibiotic anyway in the days before your wedding at least if that’s what the doc said to do.

Lady680:  You said inhalers. Is one of them a steroid? What is the other one? How long have you been on the inhalers?

It takes  a few days for inhalers to kick in.

I would start the antibiotics but also take probiotics to avoid the GI distress.

Lady680:  I would go back and see your doctor if you are not getting better. Do you have asthma? maybe a course of oral steroids might help if that’s the case. If your doctor really thinks that you need to take the antibiotic, ask and see if taking something like Pepcid to protect your stomach would be ok. If you tend to get diarrhea with antibiotics, take probiotics/active culture yogurt which can help with that. Hope you are feeling better very soon!

Maybe ask the dr for a few days worth or predisilone tablets and also ask for some codeine, codeine when taken in larger doses like in panedine forte, stopps coughing and rests your poor throat.

I just recently got over a virus that caused violent coughing fits.  None of the cough suppressants worked at all. I spoke to a nurse who said to take honey like eat a tablespoon slowly as it is a natural cough suppressant.  I did that every night and it totally helped me sleep And soothed my dry throat.
