i dunno others, but we at the newspaper cannot mention the brand name, so we write the chemical name, sebab can kena saman if we condemn or say the good about the medicine...

so cari chemical name la, like the medicine yang bagi elok fever la, headache la, soluble or not fast or not, is paracetamol (this la the chemical name)  la...

like the wan you mention about antibiotic is amoxicillin, and the cough syrup just that.. the crystal powder have to ask dive doc la hehehe, macam the thing not legal je...

I'm no doctor, but my advice is try not to dive. Pressure can do all sorts of things to the throat and sinuses.
My best remedy, besides taking the amoxcillin, expectorant and paracetamol, and inhaling the fumes of those camphor crystals -

Before you go to sleep...
1. Mix 3 table spoons of salt in a glass of warm water, as wrm as you can stand it,
2. Mix 2 table spoons of Bactidol ( can buy in pharmacies) in the glass
3. Gargle by taking small sips and tipping yr head backwards, throroughly immersing yr throart in the solution
4. Spit & repeat 3.
May take a few times to finish a glass full, and cause some neck ache, but believe me, you will wake up to a clear throat. Do this everyday for the next 3-4 days and yr cough will clear quickly.
Logic is, the germs are multiplying in your throat and re-infecting yr thrachea and bronchi, and the best way to put a stop to that is to cleanse yr throat before going to sleep.
Happy trying...

lately i think i put up a thread about if one cough can one still dive..
i guess the answer is yes  ::)

but based on your no.4 .. is it something like ventolin?
better jaga jaga ya :)

yes.. adik's recommendation is for sore throat... sure ok one :) ubat cara traditional :P .. when i reached US... kena sore throat.. takut to see doctor here...mahal :P  so, i followed the "cara" .. and it works perfectly :P

Hmm...I use method No.4.

Usually white powdery stuff, we put on glass table, when grounded, take straw and snort it up...works well...it also helps relieve stress.

Other than that, stay away from Citrus fruits like Oranges.

Straw is simple...but batang betik is thrilling. Sometimes I create one from plastic medicine bottles.

But next I wanna try is by using Shisha. ;D ;D ;D

It will surely cure all ills except social ills.
