Painkillers for a severe cold


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm on day 23 and it's been amazing so far. Increased energy levels, reduced anxiety and depression and sleeping better.

I started a new job in a pharmacy last week and yesterday I came down with an incredibly painful chesty cough. I was surprised with how good I'd been feeling and how great my nutrition had been that I hadn't been able to fend off the bug. Anyhow, I'm not taking any expectorant cold and flu medicine as they all have sugar in or artificial sweeteners and I'm determined to stay compliant. It's got to the point now though where my chest is really raw so i've had to take paracetamol and ibuprofen. Is this ok on whole30? Should I be avoiding painkillers altogether? I very rarely take them anyway, only when absolutely necessary.
