Worst cold I've ever had! Need medicine recommendations!

I can't breath out of my nose and its driving me nuts! Its been 3 days now and no medicine seems to work. The only thing that helps is Vicks but that only seems to last about 10 minutes then I'm stuffed up again. I also tried running a hot shower and sitting in the bathroom breathing the steam but that did nothing. Help me!!!

  • I recommend calling your Dr. to ask what they recommend. 

    Personally, I recommend Psuedoephedrine.  You will need an ID for this.

  • Try Traditional Medicinals Gypsy Cold Care tea with some honey. It makes me feel better, and clears me out for awhile.
    Pseudoephedrine is a great OTC option that you can pick up from the pharmacy counter.
    I hope you feel better! =)

  • I really like Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold, as long as you don't have high blood pressure. I take that, & Emergen-C, & it usually knocks it out within a day or two. Feel better!
