  • mucinex or lots of water/warm steam and a saline rinse for the nose. water to keep you hydrated- the more hydrated you are the thinner your mucous is, thus it is easier to get rid of. warm steam to help break it up in your chest, vicks also helps. saline rinse to break up any nasal congestion.

  • sudafed, the real kind that you have to sign for; the store brand is fine.

    get some peppermint tea; peppermint is a natural decongetant.
