    I prefer the 12 hour no-name versions of sudaphed, it works great for me. I have to buy it at the counter these days, because I guess meth-heads somehow use it to make their poison. :spit:

    For your sore throat, gargle a mixture of 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water.

    Lots of vitamin C and water. I like the rolls of "Daily C". They're like Lifesavers but taste like orange. They're very good and have about all the C you'll need.

    Teaspoon of honey for a sore throat. If nothing else, you get a teaspoon of honey out of the deal. Honey is tasty. I just bought about 25 honeysticks today. :cool: If I have a sore throat and I can't get to sleep, I do the honey thing. Helps coat the throat.
  4. Yes, and all to fuel their Blitzcrieg lightning warfare.
  5. COMTREX cold and cough.

    Day and night.

    Yeah this is good. You probably have a minor cold. Sudafed to dry up the snot and the warm salt water to sooth sore throat and keep your throat warm and moist (yeah, ya'll can go crazy with that sentence...whatever).

    The OTC cold med that always works for me is Alka Seltzer Plus Cold & Flu. Nasty tasting stuff, but clears me right up when I drink it.

    Buckley's. Every Canadian can attest to this. It works, but it tastes vile.

    Hell yes it does...

    whenever I feel crappy in the winter (flu symptoms and such) I take alka seltzer, lay down for an hour, and feel great.

    Whiskey. Good ole whiskey never killed anyone...cept my great-grandfather but he was Irish so it was natural.

    Seriously though, warm salt water for your throat. works wonders.
  17. Not for very long anyway ;)

    Dude, you've got a cold, get over it

    ya ever hear of a 'hot whiskey'? people swear by it in ireland. A little whiskey (as much as you like ;) ) in a glass of hot but not boiling water. mix in a spoon of sugar, and a lemon with cloves stuck into it.

    if the first one doesn't make ya feel better, just keep trying, you'll get there!

    or do like I did once...get a box of oranges that are sold by fund raisers and keep eating them till you get sick and puke up pulp...

    I wasn't sick though....they were just really good oranges...

    +1. That stuff kicks ass. Unfortunately, it also makes me sleep for like 20 hours straight.
