And this time you think it's the meds and not the flu?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

How much fluids have you had to drink in the last 24 hours?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

not much at all doc good bit of milk yesterday , 2 glasses of water today thats it so i need more i think just took my temp and its ok 36.4 degrees.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Then Peter I think you do have the flu and while the benelyn will help you need lots of fluids and some food and rest. There are times, when you get physically sick, that you think it's the meds and just not feeling physically well brings us all down. Just stay on the same dose for now and take as good physical care of yourself as you can
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

ok doc will do thanks doc i will try drink more and get an early night , thanks doc feel more at ease now i know its more the flu than the meds , i was just trying to battle through it but i will look after myself more now , keep you posted doc enjoy your eveningSmile
