I have been sick for the past week and when i called my doctor the only thing that i could take that was over the counter was tylonol. I would call your doctor and just ask them what is ok to take. It varys a bit from doctor to doctor. The tylonol worked for me brought my fever right down and was amazing for my head aces.

Since you have a stratchy throat, a hoarse voice, and technically cannot take anything unless ok'd by doctor EXCEPT tylenol, I would suggest you make yourself some Lipton tea. Bring water to a boil, throw a Lipton tea bag in, with some slices of ginger and lemon. Then after you put the tea in a cup, add a teaspoon of honey and some sugar. It tastes good and will get rid of that sore throat. Just run that ginger by a doctor first before trying it. I'm not 100% sure you can take it, but I think you can.

I am sick right now as well and my Dr. tells me Sudafed (only the red box) is ok. You can actually take that with Tylenol. I asked thte pharmacist today. Make sure you get SUDAFED (which may now be behind pharmacy counter due to kids doing dumb things with them) and not SUDAFED PE.
