I wouldn't: Personally use it that way. I have seen people on websites say it is an expectorant if you gargle with it & that it dissipates a sore throat. But I have also known people to experience burning in their throats. Saltwater gargles are very helpful. Mix a teaspoon of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle with this several times a day. You can gargle with aloe vera juice a couple of times per day. ...Read more

Can i chew nicorette (nicotine gum) gum while on ciprofloxacin. One doctor said that nicorette (nicotine gum) was fine, another said nicotine (smoking) was no good.

Not that I know.: First, identify what kind of headache you have and what may be underlying cause.

Various herbals: Garlic is my favorite except you'll smell like a great italian! I use a clove three times daily - slice it up and eat a small slice with each bite of your meal or it will be too hot - do this for 2-3 days and avoid the whole cold issue as it's antiviral and antibacterial. Zinc lozenges are also helpful as is olive leaf extract, and higher doses of vit c 1000mg 2-3 times daily. ...Read more
