I drink a lot of water, eat some fruit and close my eyes trying to rest for as long as necessary.

I recommend, it is understood that I'm talking about all those minor problems and related over-the-counter medications… Absolutely nothing that could relate to prescriptions relating to serious and / or chronic illnesses or problems and in any case it is always good to contact your doctor for any doubts ...
