Swallowing is harder, i dont have a soar throat. is this normal on duloxetine?

Possibly

Medication
Dry mouth is often a consequence of psychiatric medication, and more difficulty swallowing could result from dry mouth. Duloxetine certainly causes dry mouth. Some psychiatric medication causes difficulty swallowing without causing dry mouth. Clozapine and quetiapine are known to do that, and that results in people drooling excessively. Duloxetine is not known to do that.

Coughing mucus and soar throat 37 hours after upper GI endoscopy. Is this normal?

Can check with Dr.

Sore throat symptoms may or may not have something to do with the upper GI endoscopy, since the throat was ok for a day and a half after the procedure. With such symptoms, one can call her primary care doctor or the GI doctor to see what the cause might be. If not related to the upper GI, the sore throat could be a cold or a strep throat infection, among other things.

Sore throat

Neck-throat
Your throat could be sore from your reflux, but see your doctor and get a throat culture to rule out a possible strep throat

Dr. Richard Rafoth answered:

I've been prescribed Omeprazole for acid reflux, I'm also on Tetralysal, for the last few days I've had sore throats and runny noise, is that normal?

Not the omeprazole

Omeprazole
Getting a sore throat AFTER starting omeprazole, which is not a side effect of omeprazole, means the omeprazole has nothing to do with the symptom.

Is itchy,sore throat (w/ coughs) normally accompanied by warm sensation around neck?Had sore throats bfore w/o warm sensation.Home remedies/treatment?

Itchy sore throat

Allergies
Your complaint may be due to a post nasal drip, allergies or sinus problems. However, it is always best to get a throat culture to rule out a strep throat. Home remidies may be salt water rinses. Or saline nose drops depending on cause

My girlfriend has a low fever for a month. Blood test levels show normal results. She has soar throat and doctors dont know the cause. Antibi.dontwork?

Persistent fever

Neck-throat
The key question is whether there are any other symptoms besides fever. In general fever lasting a month should be evaluated. Consider (beyond the usual infections) mononucleosis, lyme disease, HIV, certain fungal infections (histoplasmosis, coccioidomycosis), lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, medication reaction, tumors (like lymphoma, leukemia), hyperthyroidism, and autoimmune disorders.

Possible

Severe coughing can rupture small blood vessels in your tracheobronchial tree. However, if your hemoptysis (coughing up blood) should persist, you need to see a doctor to r/o tumor and TB.

what's good for sore throats ?

Depends

Sores
A simple sore throat from a cold responds nicely to hot liquid of some type. Some people like hot water and honey, some like tea, and then there is always chicken soup. Lozenges can help as well as advil or tylenol. If the sore throat is severe and you are having trouble swallowing, not just discomfort, but pain you may have a viral or bacterial infection. In that case you should see your doctor.

What to do for a Soar throat?

Sore throat

Sore
f you have a significantly sore throat w swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see your medical provider & get a strep throat test & culture. 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. A mixture of chamomile tea with honey & a small amount of lemon juice is good.
