I've been trying several remedies to get over this pretty major case of the flu, and one of the things I've tried is Advil Cold and Sinus pills. This has been one of my favorite remedies for a while! Last night I woke up in the middle of the night with the whole side of my face just in pain. My jaw even hurt because of what I thought must be sinus pain. I think my face was even partially swollen on that side from the inflammation in the sinuses. I know that sinuses are connected to the ear canals and they go over the back of the mouth, and that's all where the intense pain was coming from, so after contemplating what I was going to do (because sleep was NOT going to be one of the things I could do with that kind of pain), I thought I'd give Advil Cold and Sinus a try. It worked! I slept the rest of the night, my sinuses are less pained and starting to clear up, and as a bonus, my fever went down to almost normal!
Advil Cold and Sinus touts itself as being able to relieve sinus pressure, nasal congestion, headache, fever, and minor body aches and pains (although I think it helped more than just MINOR aches and pains), and it certainly did all that for me last night. Each pill contains 200mg of ibuprofen (Advil brand name), and 30mg of pseudoephedrine. Since it contains pseudoephedrine and apparently people have figured out some way of using that to make a powerful illegal substance, you need to get this from behind the pharmacy counter. Although that is kind of a pain in the butt, DO IT! It's very worth it to get the good stuff.
There are several warnings on the label, so please read them before you buy or take this product since it may not be for everyone.
If you have a bad cold and need some fast relief so you can get some rest, try this out! This has always been a favorite and it has never disappointed me!
