I have a very terrible cold, stopped up nose sore throat headaches is there anything I can be prescribed?

Symptoms only: There is no cure for common cold yet and Rx are targeted on symptoms. For headaches, Tylenol (acetaminophen), sore throat-lozenges with honey, anesthetic, or even zinc, nasal congestion-OTC nasal spray (not to be used for more than 5 days). There is suggestion that chicken soup may be helpful. I personally prefer inhaling some warm steam 2x/day. Wash your hands often to avoid transmitting the germ. ...Read more

you have a cold: The zinc in coldeze may shorten the duration of a cold by a day or so. Symptomatic treatment will make you feel better.

I have a runny nose, sore throat, weak, & a headache. What medicines do you recommend?

Rest & Liquids: If you have a virus, which is a common cause of head colds, I'm afraid the best thing is to rest and drink plenty of clear fluids; your body will have to largely fight this off. Acetaminophen can help alleviate some of your discomfort, and warm herbal tea with honey is very soothing for a sore throat. If you have a high fever however, might be good to swing by your dr.'s office. ...Read more
