Ok to take amoxacilin for a cough and fever?

If ur Dr. says so: Cough and fever aren't, by themselves, indications for antibiotics. If you have a diagnosis of pneumonia, bacterial bronchitis, sinusitis with post nasal drip causing cough then perhaps. Routinely taking antibiotics for upper respiratory symptoms is one of the reasons why antibiotics are no longer working (bacterial resistance, see http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/antibiotic_resistance ). ...Read more

Have a horrible headache and a fever. Taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for an ear infection. No spleen. What should I take to help with fever and headache?

I have chills and slight nausea. What medicine should I take- Aleve for the bad fever or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for the allergy?

In that case Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will only make you sleepy. It's not a very good medication for nausea. Take your Ibuprofen and go to bed. ...Read more
