HOW TO COPE WITH SIDE EFFECTS?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Urinary tract infection
    Your doctor may prescribe antibiotics to treat a urinary tract infection. Most will clear up within a few days. Try some natural remedies like taking cranberry juice and probiotics for help. To ease the pain, try taking painkiller medicine. You can also try placing a hot water bottle or heat pad on your tummy or between your thighs. Rest and drink plenty of fluids (not alcohol or caffeine) to help flush the bacteria out of your body. Urinating frequently helps get rid of the bacteria as well.
  • Coping with Nasal congestion (stuffy nose)
    Try saline spray or nose drops. Taking steam inhalation or placing a warm wet towel on your face can also help. Use a humidifier if the air in your house is too dry. Using an extra pillow at night to lift up your head can also improve your breathing. If your condition does not improve, you should talk to your doctor. The doctor may be able to prescribe you certain over-the-counter medicines that can help improve your condition.
  • Coping with Sore throat
    Try gargling with warm salt water as it can help soothe a scratchy throat and relieve the discomfort. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Consider lozenges or hard candy. Avoid caffeine and alcohol, as they can dry out your throat and aggravate the symptoms. Also, avoid smoking or smoky places. Warm tea that is sweetened with honey can also soothe your irritated throat. Get plenty of rest and consider using a humidifier if the air in your home is dry. If it does not get better or get worse, talk to your doctor for advice.
