I took a sick day yesterday. Holy head cold. Still feel like doo doo but I'm going to make it work today.
My go-to head cold products:
I swear to you that Alka Seltzer is the only cold medicine that even TOUCHES my symptoms. The other stuff (Zicam, Airborne, Emergen-C) could just all be in my head but I swear it helps shorten my cold and makes everything more bearable to deal with. Just make sure you take it until your symptoms are GONE. I have definitely had the experience where I'll take it for a few days and then stop and then REALLY get sick.
