I had a Flu

Last week, I had a nasty flu. Went to see doctor just in case it was H1N1. Doctor said that there was no H1N1 in Miri and I felt better immediately! He checked my sore throat and prescribed me with a few drugs...
Perhaps, the best he did was to give me this 1gm per tablet vitamin C. This reminded me of my childhood days whereby we bought those sweet which can be dissolved in water.
Then he also gave me this to suck. It was quite effective.
Then this bottle for relieving my throat which I didn't take.
Now, the top one is Augmentin which is one of the most powerful antibiotics for my sore throat. I didn't take this. I am scare of antibiotic which will make me weak eventually. The bottom one, Clarinase, is a good flue drug. I took this and it seems to help a great deal.
Warning! This entry is not to teach you to diagnose and prescribe your own drug. If you are sick, go and see a doctor. Antibiotic should not be simply taken.

It's the weather - a lot of people coughing. Yup...I took that Difflam too...and if I am going down with a flu, I would take Clarinaise too. There is the Malaysian-made one - Carinox - same thing at half the price. Take care now... We're no spring chicken anymore! LOL!!!

Anyway you are well now. Thanks God

wenn: you are right! Boosting immune system is indeed the best.

CY: Yes, much better now.

STP: You are right. We are no spring chicken. Ah?! Sound so old liao!

Dr. Mark: When I have to pay the bill myself, I will probably not want any medicine! You are right, antibiotic is not needed most of the time.
