What do you take or do when you have a cold?

I'm feeling run down with a cold, I fun filled weekend coming up and I need to get better. Any advice would help?
Thank you!

  • I take Thera-Flu and sleep it off (that stuff knocks me out) or apple cider with some whiskey (grandpa told me to do that)

    Either way if I take one of those two things I wake up in the morning feeling fanstastic compared to how I felt the day before.

  • I drink lots of echinacea tea- I buy it in the grocery store. I also gargle with warm salt water.

  • Unless I am in severe pain, nothing. Taking meds ***** up your immune system, which is why I never really get sick in the first place :-)

    Bmat is right on the money!
