Doctor insights on:
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

I bought corenza C ,accc, and corporal, but it's not working please advise
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
My nose has been running for 4 days ... I have been self medicating with Corenza C, Clenil Nasal spray and antihistamines. is there anything else ?
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

My son, age 15 is not feeling well. Coughing and said his form is yellow. Gave him corenza, acc 200 and linctagon. Any other advice?
Viral viral :
Most chest infections are viral, meaning antibiotics are useless to help them clear. They can also cause inflammation which takes very long to heal. If he is not taking more than 30 breaths per minute, he is unlikely to have pneumonia, which means he does not need hospital.
The most important advice I can give is rest, fluids, healthy diet. Viral infections rely on immune system to clear. ...Read more

Hi my 3.5 year-old boy has a cough and blocked nose and a slight fever. We have been giving him corenza junior since Sunday but he is not getting any better. What other medication can I give?
Nothing specific: Studies in the US showed the cough meds do little more than give you something to do in kids under 6. They are more likely to end up in an ER visit for an overdose than help. These usually pass/self heal in a week or so. Maintaining good nutrition and rest are the best supportive care. ...Read more
