I am planing to drink alcohol heavily after 52 hours, I am coughing since two days I did not take any medicines. What medicine can I buy? Thanks

Drinking When Sick: You do realize that we are really medical doctors here? Drinking alcohol when one is ill is the very definition of insanity. Don't you think? I know of no physician worth their salt that would not comment and remind you that drinking when one is ill makes the person sicker and recovery longer. Please reconsider your plan and rest and take in good, nutritions fluids, such as water.
