Equate Suphedrine Nasal Decongestant worked wonders for me. I had a severe cold, and the most irritating symptom was stuffed yet runny nose; it leaked like a broken faucet. I first thought of buying some Sudafed, then opted for this cheaper version. The pack I purchased contained 48 small red caplets which I thought I would quickly use up, as I was certain that it would take me days to get rid of such a bad cold.
It turned out that I had underestimated this medication. I took 2 caplets, and in about an hour or so the "faucet" had stopped leaking. I couldn't believe it. The unpleasant feeling of my head being heavy and tense was relieved as well. The effect lasted for about 4 hours; then some of the symptoms began to return, but by that time I could already take another dose (you should take these pills every 4 to 6 hours).
I had defeated that bad cold much sooner than I hoped, and I was not miserable in the process, thanks to Equate Suphedrine Nasal Decongestant.
