Cough & Cold
Did this season take a toll on you? Are you dealing with a dry cough or a constantly dripping nose? Although well-known, very common symptoms, they may interfere with your day (and night!) for way longer than you are willing to take. I got your back! Check out my recommendations below or, even better, contact me for a personalized recommendation. It isn’t often, but it may happen that other health conditions or other ongoing medications interfere with one of the medications below. Let me find the safest, most efficient option for you!
The availability of supplements and over-the-counter medications varies across the globe. Thus a specific product that I recommend here may not be available in your area. If that is the case, a reliable alternate option will be displayed for you. These selections and their alternatives are NOT automatically picked by a computer algorithm but evaluated by myself for the reliability of their active & inactive ingredients, length of time on the market (postmarketing surveillance), and past customers’ feedback.
|Dr. Alice’s Recommendation||Product Link|
|Phenylephrine is a milder decongestant than pseudoephedrine but does the job without a rebound effect. You do not need to go in person to the pharmacy to buy phenylephrine and – unlike pseudoephedrine – you may buy as many as you need.||Generic Phenylephrine|
|This is a very clever combination for the cold season.
That frustrating dry cough that doesn’t seem to clear your throat will be quickly loosened up by this product. At the same time, it will also dry your runny nose during the day and stuffy nose during the night so that you can rest well throughout the night. More than one dose per day is possible, but contact me to ensure that you are safe.
|Mucus Relief Sinus|
|This product will get you covered for that cold that gave you the headache, the runny nose, the dry cough, AND the fever. It will relieve both nasal and sinus congestion. I prefer it to the sinus&cold kind of tablets because the liquid form allows a faster absorption and a quicker effect. Quite good stuff – it works! More than one dose per day is possible, but contact me to ensure that you are safe.||Mucinex FastMax and NightShift|
|This cocktail helps you fight that bad cough that brings tears to your eyes. If it isn’t that much runny nose as it is a bothering cough and headache, then this is what you need. It won’t only loosen the cough, but will also diminish the number of episodes and give you a chance to recover from the cough-induced chest pain. The mild pain reliever it contains will help with both pain and fever if a low-grade fever is also there “with the package”. More than one dose per day is possible, but contact me to ensure that you are safe.||Tylenol Cold Multisymptoms|
|Similar to the one above, this cocktail helps you fight that bad cough that brings tears to your eyes. The difference is the taste. More than one dose per day is possible, but contact me to ensure that you are safe.||Tylenol Severe Flu|
