Salar, I have a deous throat infection I am taking

Customer Question

Hi Salar, I have a hideous throat infection for which I am taking Cephalexin. I've been taking Panadol (paracetamol) ...I'm in Australia....We do have stronger pain killers with codeine or an anti-inflammatory called Nurofen Plus. Can I take these together?
The ordinary painkillers aren't working? I haven't slept for three days and can't even swallow water without pain.

Dear Salar, is this page a rip-off? I asked for a password ***** and got no response. So I tried to enter a new email***@******.*** and a new password. Then the whole darn thing froze. I am already stressed I paying $35 for nothing?

Hi there,

I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you.

Panadol is not working anti-inflammatory and should be substituted by Nurofen plus. This will work much better. Codeine is not very helpful in inflammatory diseases. Please refrain from hot drinks, stick to cold food and drinks.

It's no problem to combine Nurofen plus with Cephalexin.

I wish you a soon recovery!
