Don't suppose anyone has found a cure for (wo)man flu?
Thank you ladies. We are short of desks in our section at the moment anyway, so I am planning to quarantine myself across in an empty bit of the office in the hope of not giving it to anyone.
Unfortunately the policy is pretty much either you're too sick to work or you're not, so can't really work from home. I also can't really be off sick at the moment unless I am actually totally incapacitated due to things going on in the office (long story - won't bore you)
I got some lemsip, but it also contains 12.2 mg phenylephrine hydrochloride. The nurofen cold and flu also have 5mg of this. Is that too much? I can just take normal ibuprofen. Don't see any warnings on the packets.
