The Christmas holiday is a time for merrymaking and good cheers. But, along with it though, the cooler climate and the busy season also triggers all sorts of seasonal ailments, from fever, common colds and cough to flu (trangkaso). Unilab, the country’s leading pharma and healthcare company, advises everyone to take early precaution and medication so you can have a merry Christmas and start the New Year in the pink of health.
Since there is a whole lot of sniffing and coughing going on during this time of the year, viruses spread fast. No matter how hard you protect yourself, you may still catch it in crowded places with a lot of airborne contaminants. No worries. There are a lot of trusted and quality over-the-counter (OTC) meds that can help you get through the holiday with ease and comfort.
Now is not the time to miss out on your daily dose of vitamins. It can protect your immune system and ensure you have all the energy you need for those last-minute shopping and numerous parties. With vitamins B and C, your daily dose of Enervon will have you covered. Remember, more energy and immunity, mas happy!
Runny nose, sneezing or clogged nose can put a damper on your activities. Whether your symptoms are from the common cold, allergic rhinitis or sinusitis, you may take Neozep. It clears obstructed air passages and helps you breathe easier. It protects you from airborne allergens that trigger allergies and cause sneezing. Neozep is available in oral drops for babies, syrup for young kids and caplet (including non-drowsy variant) for adults.
Aside from runny or stuffy nose, sore throat and cough usually accompany symptoms of common colds. Sticky phlegm can also be a problem. If not immediately taken care of, this might lead to more serious respiratory tract disorders such as bronchitis. So, doctors advise taking Solmux. Its carbocisteine content makes phlegm less sticky and easier to expel. That’s a whole lot of relief for the entire family, no more coughing like a noisy dog.
Biogesic can do the trick in easing fever and headache. It also eases minor aches and pains such as headache, backache, minor arthritis pain and muscle aches. Do not prolong your fever and headache, and take Biogesic immediately. It can be taken on an empty stomach, so you may take it anytime headache or fever strikes. Make sure to hydrate, drink lots of water, and don’t forget to rest amidst the Christmas rush.
If you’ve got more than one or a combination of symptoms—fever with cough, colds or body pains, then that’s flu already. In short, “pag two, flu.” So, better take Bioflu for fast relief. You do not have to take a cocktail of different tablets as all-in-one Bioflu is enough.
The cool amihan weather and holiday stress or fatigue are not the only causes of holiday-related diseases. Our lifestyle and eating habits can also cause problems. Christmas parties and reunions mean a lot of drinking, eating and bingeing. Too much food and beverage consumption can take its toll on our stomachs and digestion. No wonder, diarrhea and dyspepsia (indigestion) is common during the holidays.
Do not let stomach-related ailments keep you from enjoying the family feast or barkada buffet. There are OTC meds that you can take such as Diatabs capsule to control loose bowel movement (LBM) or Kremil-S chewable table for hyperacidity associated with dyspepsia, ulcer or gastritis. Of course, remember to eat and drink in moderation, and do not overindulge.
