Hi doctor,

I have a fever. When I checked it, it was 100 F. Please help. I am attaching the prescription of the medicines that I take regularly.



Welcome to

I just read your query about your fever and saw your medications for your other conditions (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • I suggest you take tablet Paracetamol 500 mg, four times a day.
  • I would like few more details about your symptoms:
  1. Do you have a sore throat?
  2. Do you have a cold or a cough?
  3. Does it burn while urinating?

Hope you find my advice of some benefit. Good luck.

  1. Tablet Metronidazole 500 mg, twice a day for three days.
  2. Tablet Hyoscine 10 mg, twice a day for three days.
  3. Take oral rehydration solution for three days.
  4. Tablet Paracetamol 500 mg, thrice a day for three days.
  5. Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water.
  6. Eat more yogurt.
  7. Avoid juices and sweet drinks.
  8. Rest a lot.

Get back to me if you have any problem.
