  • I use a product called Sinusin. I get it at Whole Foods. For whatever reason it seems to lessen and sometimes even stop my colds. On the occasion that I don't take it, I use dayquil and a benedryl tylenol cocktail at night.

  • Oscillococcinum...it's homeopathic, they even give it to babies and it works.

  • Sudafed or Mucinex D. The stuff you have to sign for at the pharmacy.

  • Alka-Seltzer Plus Day&Night is the personal favorite of DH & I.  Our family doctor tells us to use Theraflu, too, but the tea is too sweet for my taste.
