Best OTC cold medicines

I made it through winter without getting sick once. . . until now. I left work early but I don't want to miss work tomorrow. What can I buy at the drugstore that will make my symptoms more tolerable? I have a headache, I am cold yet feel sweaty. I also have a sore throat and keep sneezing.


Thank you!

I love Thera Flu. I drink it at night & don't feel all groggy the next morning.

I usually take Dayquil and REAL Sudafed (the stuff that you have to get from the cashier/pharmacist now...it's still OTC, you just have to ask for them to get it and usually sign something).

use mucinex only if you have mucus or any signs of congestion.

i would use nyquil/dayquil. if you have any signs of inflammation in your throat, then that's when you should take an nsaid (ibu, aleve, etc..)

if you have ANY muscle pains/aches, you could be having pneumonia or the flu. that's when you should see a dr before anything progresses.

also if you have high blood pressure or if you're diabetic, since most of these otc drugs raise blood pressure, you should contact your dr or local pharmacist for an alternate med

I went to Target yesterday and bought Zicam and Chloraseptic. I still don't feel great but I am alive and made it to work.

I am going to get some tea and dayquil on the way home from work.

Thanks all for your suggestions.
