    I've had a fever of 101 for three days now I can't seem to shake it. I've also had a horrible sore throat and conjested head. Oh the fun of getting sick. But the fever is making it the most uncomfortable. Anybody have something they like for fevers....drugs, home remedies, etc...? I know I could go to the doctor and get the good stuff but it's the weekend now so I'm S.O.L.

    a sauna... sweat that sumbitch out... or, do as i do, a gallon of not-from-concentrate OJ, a bottle of nyquil (dont drink the whole bottle of nyquil) and a bottle of dayquil (same instructions)... and some centrum vitamins..
    get up in the am and take 8tbsp of dayquil, 2 vitamins and 2 glasses of OJ,.. about 3 hrs later take 4 tbsp of dayquil and a glass of oj... in the evening 8tbsp of nyquil, 1 vitamin and 1 glass of oj before dinner and 2 glasses of oj and maybe a banana and a vitamin after... hit the hay and repeat, 2 days it'll be whooped.. then keep on the vitamins, they help keep ya healthier anyways..

    Remember that nyquil no longer has a decongestant in it. Mix the nyquil with sudafed.

    It could be strep throat. Do a web search for the symptoms (white pimple things in the back of your throat).

    If it were me, I'd go to the day hospital or call the doctor. I don't mess around with fevers.

    Alka Seltzer Plus, it may knock you out, but it will definately help fight the fever.
    I switched from NyQuil to this stuff, much better IMO.

    shot of powder vitamin C and water more you take quicker you heal.If you cant get powder go to walmart get the pills and crush them (absorbs faster) take over 5000mg I do about that every 4 hours works great. rubbing alchole across your forhead neck will drop the fever quick. hope that helps

    X2. Take a coffee cup and mix a couple of jiggers of whiskey with some lemon, juice, honey, and a little water. Heat it til you can barely drink it, then shoot and go to bed. Your going to burn up, but stay under the covers and you'll get rid of it.

    Once your fixed, take a little nip every morning to keep the germs at bay.

    You have a temp. 101* which mean you have fever (as appossed to a cold), which means you have a virus, which means there's nothing you can do to get rid of it, you simply treat for comfort and ride it out.

    Suggestions: 400-600MG of Advil every4 to 6 hours plus 1000mg tylenol. UNTIL THE FEVER BREAKS. That way your safely treating for comfort from 2 different directions.

    Gatorade: Drink a gallon a day, literally, until your illness subsides.

    Rest: grab the remote and rest, rest, rest.

    Tempt. : Keep track of your temp. As long as you're over 100.0* use only one sheet (not blanket) for a cover. Your body is telling your brain you're cold when if fact you're burning up (literally). And if you can handle it, a cool bath, NOT A F*CKING SAUNA OR JACUZZI :mad: :mad: !!

    If you want to commit suicide, then thats the way to do it-your temp. (100*+) plus 100* jacuzzi= 1 boiled CK5 member :(

    Remember, you're only treating for comfort.
    Hope that helps :D .

    whenever I get sick, I eat and drink a lot. Your body won't be able to fight off jack if its all weak from malnutrition. Shovel down all the healthy food/juices you can stand... you'll be fine. Couple of good warm showers a day is a good idear too.
