You could drink emergenC,I just found out by my professor whom is a doctor after I got over my cold. She said it tastes like the tang drink. You could also have a vaporizer running all night
You can make a orange and lemon hot drink ok.
Just put water and one halfed lemon and orange and let is boil for a few minutes ok then put it in a cup with one tablespoons of honey then drink it twise a day.
Sorry you don't feel well! You can take Tylenol, robitussin, secrets, mucinex, and other things. Your doctor will be happy to take a phone call to help or even the pharmacist where you shop to ask this question too. Also, steam is one of the best things for congestion. Boil water on your stove and stand over the steam or even put a towel over your head and have face over it under the towel. (Then make a cup of tea for your throat w the boiling water!). A netty pot helps, saline squirts into nose, humidifier are all good. Even standing in a hot steaming shower wil help congestion. Good luck
