Every year during the cold winter season, I always get the Flu and starts coughing and sneezing like crazy. I hate the feeling of having to go through the days with running nose and blocked nose due to the flu. I even started coughing up mucus but my cough seemed quite stubborn and had been around for almost one and a half month.
Taking medicine prescribed by the Doctor hardly helped much. Instead it made me feel weak and sleepy all the time. When I started to feel a bit better, I continued the medicine and still I couldn't get well completely. At least, the running nose had stopped but the persistent cough was still bad. I feel that somehow the prescription drugs makes it worse for our bodies to fight the flu.
