Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 21-year-old male and I weigh 125 lbs. I am 5 feet 6 inches in height. My symptoms are a cough for one month. I am currently on tablet Levosure 500 mg, tablet Ventair 10 mg, and syrup Adovas.

Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

The symptoms you provided are typical findings of this season.

If you have a productive cough which is yellowish or greenish, it indicates a bacterial infection of the respiratory tract. It could be a case of bronchitis and Levofloxacin should work. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and with their consent take the medicines.

If not, you could get a culture and sensitivity test of the sputum and switch to another antibiotic according to the report.

However, if you have a dry cough, no fever or purulent sputum, it could also be a post-infectious cough or a cough associated with postnasal drip.

Also, if you smoke, it can make your cough worse.

If your symptoms do not resolve with medication, you should get a chest X-ray done.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
