  • Dayquil is the only one that comes to mind.

  • There's a non-drowsy Sudafed, I believe. Robitussin can help with the cough (only the cough). Cough drops may help take the edge off.
    I use Traditional Medicinals Gypsy Cold Tea with some honey when I feel lousy. I swear that is the BEST stuff. Even my skeptical DH admitted he felt much better. You can get it at most grocery stores. I hope you feel better!

  • Nyquil day and Sudafed's version seem to work pretty well my husband. Alternately, Tyelenol, Advil and cough drops/throat spray.

  • Dayquil, and a good tea. I drank the Gypsy Cold Care tea (traditional medicinals brand) when I was sick and it really helped clear my congestion too. I put honey and ginger in it too.
