I've dabbled in a number of cold medications but I often return to this one. CONTAC Complete Cough, COld & Flu offers surprisingly good supression of common cold symptoms such as running nose, cough and fever. As well, some versions also include additional vitamin C to give you another shot at defeating the cold quickly. I've taken up to 3 a day and enjoyed symptom relief around the clock. The one downside to this drug which I experienced was off and on drowsiness. On occasion, drowsiness occurs even though the box is clearly labelled NON-drowsy. Whether or not you experience this, I'm not sure, but I do know that you ought not to take NON-drowsy as fact. Overall I would definitely consider CONTACT again if I do catch another cold, but definitely don't drive or operate machinery while on it.
