Right before the holidays this year, Warren and I battled wretched cold and flu. While my son suffered from fever, chills, loss of appetite and a severe cough, I struggled with severe body aches, cough, chills and loss of my voice and appetite. Basically we were both miserable. My son was feeling much better after a fews days, but mine held out much longer, and at the worst time of year. Mom sick at the holidays makes everything tough. especially when out of state guests are visiting.
For a long time I always kept products on hand that would help me battle through illness. But lately I’ve been keeping more available for the kids and less for adults. My husband and I get sick less often than our kids do, so I wasn’t making sure we were prepared. I now know how wrong that is. Products like Vicks DayQuil Severe and NyQuil Severe Cold & Flu would have brought me some much needed relief when I was at my worst. And really, I was very much at my worst. I am mom, and I don’t get a sick day. I can’t stop just because I don’t feel good.
So why these products? Both have maximum symptom-fighting ingredients to relieve your worst cold and flu symptoms and are available in caplets or liquid.
Vicks NyQuil Severe Cold & Flu:
Maximum strength nighttime cold and flu relief, so you can take back your night. The powerful NyQuil relief you trust now with a decongestant.
Vicks DayQuil Severe Cold & Flu:
Maximum strength nondrowsy cold and flu relief so you can tackle your to-do list.
What does relief really mean?
They temporarily relieve these common cold/flu symptoms:
- Nasal congestion
- Sinus congestion and pressure
- Cough to help you sleep (NyQuil)
- Cough due to minor throat and bronchial irritation
- Minor aches and pains
- Sore throat
- Reduces swelling of nasal passages
- Temporarily restores freer breathing through the nose
- Promotes nasal and/or sinus drainage
- Helps loosen phlegm (mucus) and thin bronchial secretions to rid the bronchial passageways of bothersome mucus and make coughs more productive
It amazes me that these little pills can make such a difference. When I’m down, I need some help. I really wish I had had Vicks. But, now I’m prepared.
Last month I picked up both varieties from Walmart since they really have everything you need to get through cold and flu season at the best everyday value, especially compared with the pharmacy near my house. With a single visit I bought some Vicks Severe, tissues, cough drops, and hand sanitizer. My absolute must-haves for cold and flu season.
Vicks DayQuil and NyQuil Severe are available at Walmart.com and in stores. Be sure to stock up to prepare for cough, cold and flu season so you aren’t caught off guard!
