Sleep issue: Great question. It is highly unlikely, instead if anything the fact that you have made a significant life change can add some stress to your life equation and make your more prone to sleep problems. I might look more at any other changes or stressors, how is your anxiety level, has you eating amounts and times changed? Caffeine? If it continues talk to your doctor. All the best! ...Read more

I have been taking Tamiflu for the last 4 days but now I have an incessant dry cough that just doesn't let up. Not very productive but cant sleep well?
Doesn't seem serious: This does not appear to be serious. In fact, this is likely an expected symptom of a resolving flu-like illness. This apparently started very recently, and is your body's way of clearing mucus out of your chest. It should resolve in a few days, but if it gives you too much discomfort, some simple cough medicine should help. You could also see your Dr. If it is still an issue. Good Luck. ...Read more

Don't over suppress: Cough is your body trying to protect itself so it's hard to answer without an exam. Stay hydrated, try green tea with honey and maybe a little whiskey at bed time if you like. Should also gargle with antibacterial mouthwash several times a day, and may want to try Emergency Immune Boost during the day. Do you have earache or sinus issues? May want to sleep with humidifier but make sure it's clea. ...Read more
