My body feels weak and i'm having a diarrhea, i also can't sleep properly during night time. Any medications?
Depends...: The best treatment depends on the etiology of the cough. Are you coughing at night when you lie down?

All these possibilities have very different treatments. See your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am taking ARV at 20H00 at night . I will be travelling overseas. I am not sure what time I must take my medication when I am there. Please advise?
Doesn't matter: I think you have been misled by warnings about not missing any ARV doses. But only repeated missed doses are a problem; missing a single dose now and then is harmless. You can either skip one dose for several hours or take a dose early, then continue taking the drug at 20:00 in whatever time zone you're in. Same thing when you return home. ...Read more

Am i supposed to take medications on time? I am currently taking meds in the morning at 8 am and 8 pm at night but not at the exact time.
Depends on the drug: Some medications need to be taken at the same time each day (plus or minus 30 minutes can usually be considered "the same time", for a drug that's taken once or twice a day). With other medications, the exact time is not as important. One should ask his prescribing doctor about his medications, to see which ones are important to take at the same time each day, and which ones are more flexible. ...Read more
