Does Airborne (the cold prevention stuff) work?

Wondering if anyone has tried it or uses it? Does it work? I've come down with the second cold, in a month and I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired! I started on vitamins and extra vitamin c, about 2 months ago and I'm still getting sick. Was thinking about trying it, if anyone knows if it really helps.

  • I love it! It isn't medicine! It's not a 100%. But it's a great immune booster. I give it to the kids this time of year. They think it's soda and it really helps us all stay healthy. They generic stuff is just as good!

  • tried it and i still got sick so i say what a waste of money. Try taking zinc if your not already. its the only thing iv found besides extra vitamin c with it that works well and drink lots of water.

  • I love Airborne! Yes it works, but you have to take it before you get sick. If you are going to be on a plane or in a kindergarten class or a friend is coming over that has a cold, then yes take it. But if you already have a cold it won't get rid of it, it will however make you feel better. I take it whenever I feel one coming on and it always works for me.
