Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You should have tablet Azithromycin 500 mg once daily, along with some antacids like Pantoprazole 40 mg before breakfast once daily for five days. Also, have Betadine gargles four times a day.

For cough, you can have syrup Alex (Phenylephrine Hydrochloride and Chlorpheniramine Maleate) two teaspoons whenever needed up to three times a day and tablet Allegra (Fexofenadine Hydrochloride) 120 mg once a day for three to four days for post nasal drip. Avoid cold food items.

I hope this helps.

Thank you doctor,

I will do so.
