ambroxol/cephalexin use
Post a Reply
For the past two weeks I have had a cough and cold. I tried solmux but it's still the same so last saturday I tried ambroxol and my mom suggested that I also have to take cephalexin? Is it OK to take these two medications at the same time? I've undergone 4 chest xrays in just 2 months before I had this cough so I'm afraid to go get an xray again because they say its bad for my health. Please I need advice. I need to be OK before my flight next week.

My friend told me taking 1 Practin and 1 Dexona everyday will make my body stronger and I will be more muscular. He told me about dizziness side effect. I really want to know the truth.... does it really make me stronger or will give me some problems in future...please reply soon.. ## Practin contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, you can learn more about it and the side effects here: Dexina contains the active ingredient Dexamethasone, which is a steroid and very risky: There are a lot more possible side effects, other than just dizziness. They will not do what you want them to do and they should never be used without a doctor's approval and supervision. Are there any other comments or questions? ## Thank you... A message for people who wants to achieve muscular body. "...
