Brintillex (trintillex)
Post a Reply
I have been on Trintillex for several years now. I do not have any side effects. I did have headaches and dry mouth in the first several months. This medication changed my life for the better, I am me again. I recently became quite sick with what I'm hoping is a cold. I did have to start an antibiotic/antifungal medication today with a cyst that ruptured. What my question is, what can I take to help my cold. Itchy dry eyes, itchy throat, dry cough, sneezing and itchy/painful ear.
