Once a diagnosis is made then a proper treatment can be prescribed. ...Read more

Most likely safe...: It is always hard to gauge how safe a medication is during pregnancy. Both of the drugs you mentioned are class c which is defined as drugs that have not been shown to be harmful to fetuses, but data is limiting; use if benefits outweigh potential risks. I guess i would ask how bad was your stomach pain from the cough. If it wasn't too bad, i wouldn't take anything (the safest alternative). ...Read more

Singulair (montelukast) is a prescription pill that can help with nasal or chest symptoms . Steroid inhalers are important for asthma (e.g. Qvar, Flovent). If allergies are severe, see an allergist and get skin tests. Allergy shots are better than meds for long term. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Traveling Diarrhea: Without fever or blood i would first advise a simple drug such as immodium. Dosing would be 4 mg every two hours as needed up to 32 mg/day. But, of course not to use the medicine after the first dose unless the diarrhea persists. Antibiotics in that part of the world are often easy to obtain and we often use Cipro (ciprofloxacin) or Levaquin as first line if there is fever and/or bleeding. ...Read more
Ent specialist- prescription cephelexin 500mg 3 /day - tonsillitis. Urologist- prescription sulfameth/trimethoprim 800/160 2/day for cultured uti. Can/should i take both?
Yes: Yes, you should take both. Different antibiotics are effective for different kinds of infections. Unfortunately neither antibiotic you have been given would treat both tonsillitis and UTI very well. So i suggest taking both as prescribed, along with a daily dose of probiotics from your local health food store to prevent a yeast infection and keep your normal internal bacterial flora in balance. ...Read more
