    I have been up all night feeling like death with a bad cold/sore throat/blocked and runny nose.

    I have drank 3 honey and lemon teas... I found some Brazilian eucalyptus honey in the cupboard buy I have used it all. Didn't help:(

    I have took 2 paracetamol or acetaminophen as you Americans say.

    I also took 2 tramadol and 2 codeine which helped me crawl out of bed.

    Still feel very ill with a stuff/runny nose.


    :(:(:(

    Take a day off, heck, its Saturday anyways, have some soup if you can, then go back to bed, rest is the best medicine when you have a cold.

    Concentrated ginger powder, if you can get it.

    Are you in Australia, by any chance?
    If so - find a Malouf Pharmacy, and find a product called 'Digest Easy' by a company called BioHawk. It's basically super concentrated ginger - a few teaspoons is equivalent to eating about 200kg of ginger :)

    It was my go-to remedy in Australia when I had the flu, and cleared me up usually within 24hrs.

    I get very bad back pain which I take tramadol for. Feeling unwell makes the back pain worse so I took 100mg of tramadol and 60mg of codeine.

    I take the bruteforce approach and get stuffed with wide range antibiotics and what not. You should talk with your pharmacist.

    Well, I work in healthcare institution and we give tramadol to patients in late stage of cancer with unbearable pain. That's why I'm surprised. Just be careful, don't take too much :)

    Echniacia, garlic for the cold. Cherry syrup, or something with codeine in it for a cough.

    Can also use Dextromethorphan (otc) for cough, Tylenol, for aches and fevers, and Doxylamine Succinate for sneezes and runny nose. You can often buy all three together in a single over the counter medicine.

    Edit also:
    large doses of vitamin C (>= 1000mg) 3 - 5 times daily and/or Zinc lozenges under the tongue 3 - 4 times daily can be helpful.

    If you want to be a real man, here's how you get rid of flu:
    Before you go to bed drink one glass (big glass, 8 oz) of whiskey/brandy/some other spirit.
    After that eat some onions and bacon.
    By the morning you'll be healthy as a horse.
    Except for the hangover.

    Go to your doctor. He would be the best person to take seriously, in this case at least. :)

    It's a flu. Whatever you take, you'll be better in a week.

    Don't take anything, you'll be better in 7 days

    Dude if you take couple of tramadols and smoke a weed after you will probably forget about cold and flu and many other things, btw

    THIS WORKS:

    Get to the health food store & get:
    A small tub of "Vital Green" (or equivalent)
    1,000mg vitamin C tablets
    1 bottle Olive Leaf Oil

    Take a teaspoon of vital greens every 1 - 1.5hrs (mix in water or juice)
    take one 1,000mg vit C in morning, and one at night
    take Tbsp olive leaf oil at least twice during day

    Best tip - if you do this as soon as you feel a cold/flu coming on it'll knock it on it's head in less that a day.... I haven't had the flu for 25 years because i do this!!

    Warning: If you're not used to taking this stuff you could be running to the bathroom a lot - but it works! :)
