My cough persisted, so I was directed to take cough syrup wherever necessary. The same would apply to Tylenol, though most of the headaches were now unrelated to fever and concentrated at the temples instead.
Near-immediate relief was experienced in terms of pain level, though phlegm production and cough frequency posed another separate challenge.
Queasiness in the stomach also surfaced, along with high amounts of acidity in the mouth. Sufficient sustenance before medication was truly not an option, however low appetite I had.
