My 13 year old daughter has constant sinusitus. She is permanently on allergex, sinucon or corenza c. She do not use them together.
Worth evaluation: Many of these would respond to a daily over the counter steroid nasal spray to suppress the effect of environmental triggers (dust, fumes, allergens, etc.) .Some of these have nasal polyps or a fungal infection both of which would require targeted treatments. If it is interfering with her activities it would be worth a visit. ...Read more

Doctor can examine: Throat symptoms can be from a strep throat infection (prescription antibiotics needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep)... but definitely should have an exam if he is having "massive fever." ...Read more
Hi my daughter, 18 years old, is complaining of sore body, temp 38. I’ve given her Corenza C, can I combine this with Panado or Neurofen?
I'm breastfeeding. Can I take Corenza-C and/or Efferflu for a head cold? My 4 month old daughter has a cold too and she's on Allergex and Prospan. Should I rather take some of her Allergex?
Probably ok: Since breast milk at best contains traces of these drugs, you will likely be ok. However if nasal congestion is your concern, a nasal decongestant spray used for up to 5 days may work better and you won't have to worry over its presence in breast milk. ...Read more

Add aspirin?: A common medical joke concerns treatment for the common cold: With no treatment, symptoms clear up in a week. With maximum treatment, it takes 7 days. in other words, you have to live with your symptoms: you can reduce but not eliminate them. You could add aspirin or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (e.g. ibuprofen) for aches and pains, but that's about it. Good luck! ...Read more
Is it safe to take corenza-c after taking sinuclear and allecet? I took these at 10pm. Currently have a badly blocked nose and mucus in my throat.
Too many medication : The Allercet (10mg cetirizine) and the Sinuclear (325 paracetamol and 18 mg phenylpronanolamine) Was a good combination if you have allergic symptoms but if you add Corenza-c you would be taking additional antihistamine (chlorpheniramine), decongestant(phenylephrine), Aspirin, Vitamin C and even an antiviral(moroxydine) I don’t think the phenylephrine will do much for your nasal congestion. ...Read more

Chronic leukemia: Chronic myelogenous leukemia is a chronic cancer that presents with increased numbers of myeloid cells. Splenomegaly may occur. CML may also transform into a more acute and dangerous leukemia in rare cases. Currently CML is effectively treated with tyrosine kinase inhibitors. These inhibitors put the body into a medical remission, which means that the leukemia is not detectable in the blood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Save your money: The minimum daily requirements for vitamins are set quite high to allow for individual variation. A few people have kinks in the vitamin E or folate or biotin metabolism and need to take large doses; not so for vitamin c. Anything like a reasonable diet with a modest amount of citrus fruit, or a dirt-cheap daily multiple vitamin, guarantees you'll have enough vitamin c. ...Read more
