of the two choices, I would take dayquil.

does this make sense to you?

Hi

This is a different expert.

I am a double board certified clinical doctor.

Sore throat and dizziness needs to be evaluated.

I suggest you go to urgent care for a rapid strep test, and to have the dizziness assed

OK, so that is an initial answer….

Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
