  • What are your favorite cold remedies?

    I think I'm getting sick. Been up since 2am sneezing, sniveling and generally miserable (3 hrs of sleep might have something to do with it). I took a mega dose of vitamin C, ate a banana then took some Sudafed and now I'm having my first cup of coffee at 4am. Any T&T home remedies?

    Just lots of rest and nyquil. I have used Dayquil but I don't think anything works for the daytime that doesn't just mess you up. For stuffy nose I use Afrin but you can only use it for a few days.
    Oh and Alka Seltzer Plus cold medicine is OK>

    Hope you feel better.

      I find the Nyquil works really good for me to sleep,,,,zonks me right out!
      I like to sip on hot apple cider or hot gingerale.
      Buy kleenex with the lotion in it, really helps to keep under your nose from getting all sore and raw.

        Nyquil, or the store brand, always works for us.

          Yep, Nyquil is a God-send..... And, the Kleenex with lotion has saved my poor little nose from falling off!! Lots of hot liquids and orange juice. The Afrin is a great idea too so you can breathe! Avoid dairy products if possible since they cause the mucus to thicken. Hope you feel better soon.. Colds suck.

                At nighttime, I like Alka Seltzer, but I usually take Tylenol Cold during the day so I don't get drowsy. REST, REST, REST and liquids are the best medicine, I think. Your body can't heal itself without these.

                      Have you ever tried Zycam? That stuff is amazing! I don't know how it works, but it does.
