    I'm coughing, a dry cough so far that hurts deep down in my chest. It feels like bronchitis to me.

    I feel hot and cold alternating, maybe a slight fever.

    I love Nyquil in the past, so I'll probably get some of that... but right now all I have in the house is some expired robitussin cough and cold that is non-drowsy and alcohol free... which isn't going to put me in the coma state that I love so much about Nyquil... and some zyrtec which I think is for allergies and wouldn't help? Or am I wrong.

    Recommendations? I'm not good w/ medicine, I rarely get sick... so I could use some advice.
    Can't go to the doctor, so it has to be OTC.

    Same boat.

    Nyquil day and night. Sleep it off. 48 hours and you're done.

    I don't have any nausea or vomiting type symptoms. If I'm not mistaken there's nothing they can prescribe for viruses... it has to be bacterial for antibiotics to get involved... and all I have is a painful cough and fever... and an ever so slightly sore throat, but it's the first day of feeling sick, so it could progress to something worse.

    Awesome, I was already thinking Nyquil, so I will get some for sure now. Thanks for the reply, I appreciate a real answer.
