Is it safe to take Dextromethprphan Phenylephnne HCI or tuseran forte for dry cough and amoxicillin together?
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more
Viral?: If your cough developed during or just after an upper respiratory tract infection, (URI) it is likely non-infectious so an antibiotic may not be helpful. Typically, these coughs are bronchospastic and you may need a bronchodilator inhaler and perhaps a steroid inhaler. These coughs can occur with a viral URI or bacterial and may last for many weeks. Inhalers may increase your comfort. ...Read more

I am suffering frm severe cold cough my senses like smelling, hearing and taste r almost lost, I am taking amoxicillin but no use what should I do?
Respiratory Illness: Not uncommon to have your senses of taste, smell, and hearing be altered when you have an infection.

Over the counter decongestants may help but really the best medicine for the senses/ symptoms is time. ...Read more

Just found out that I am pregnant, I've been taking amoxicillin for a bad cold I got. Is it safe to continue taking it? I still have a bad cough.
Not a problem: Amoxicillin is not likely to help your cold if that is what it is, nor will it harm your baby. If you do not really need the Amoxicillin would stop it now. There are several potential side-effects for you (not your baby) that are unnecessary to risk. Good luck and have a great baby. ...Read more
