Best cold medicine

What is the best cold medicine out there. I have stuffy nose, sore throat and mucous Chat Icon.

I have tried so many and I feel like nothing works

Also, what do you recommend for kids.

Best cold medicine

Personally, I like Alka Seltzer Plus cold medicine. It works the best for me, but it does wear off right at the four-hour mark. The nighttime one works great as well.

Re: Best cold medicine

Most cold medicnies don't really work sadly.

You need to get the Sudafed that they keep behind the pharmacy and you have to show ID for.
Also get a can of saline mist for your nose.

And then motrin or advil for sore throats, aches, pains, headache.

And Mucinex SOEMTIMES works for mucus but it's hit or miss. Drink a lot of water - that helps a lot.

Also- a cool mist humidifier when you sleep- game changer

Re: Best cold medicine

I find that cold medicines don't really work but when I feel myself starting to get sick I take Emergen-C immune plus and it seems to help.

Re: Best cold medicine

I use Advil Cold and Sinus. I find that really helps me. Mucinex really helps too but I don't react well to that when I take it.

I also use Flonase and the Neil Med bottle and that helps too.
