Welcome to icliniq.com.

Check the fasting blood sugar to see if sugars are in control. Is the fever associated with any cold or a cough? Seems to be a viral infection. If associated with cold and cough Azithral (Azithromycin) 500 mg to be taken once a day for three days. The tablets taken can induce gastritis causing vomiting sensation, take tablet Pantop-D (Pantoprazole and Domperidone) once a day for four days half an hour before breakfast. Take tablet Emeset (Ondansetron) twice a day for two days for the vomiting sensation. For fever continue taking Paracetamol 650 mg thrice a day till fever subsides. Keep yourself rehydrated by drinking lots of water. Investigations required complete blood picture, urine routine, fasting blood sugar, and urine ketones.
