  • Try a humidifier, saline rinse (salt water), a warm shower to clear out your lungs. Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do. However, the cocktail that my doctor recommended when I got knocked over with a cold (cough and congestion) is Sudafed (the regular, not extended or extra strength or anything) and Tylenol. You can also use regular Robitussin (again, not extended release or extra strength or anything), too. This got me through the days, and got me to sleep. Hang in there!
