 The only cold med that we take is Nyquil at night to help us get a good nights sleep.  We don't take anything during the day other than plenty of fluids and lots of rest.

That's exactly what we do. 

We also use a Vicks humidifier at night time.

 None for me. Kids, I let the doctor tell me what is best. Too many recalls out there nowadays to take any chances.
