I have been pleased with the results of this product, and since it is the Equate brand, it is also pretty cheap compared to other alternatives. Combining its effectiveness and its low price makes it a great deal. Congestion Relief This medicine is very effective at relieving the symptoms of congestion that come with a cold and flu. Chest Congestion Relief This flu and cough medicine helps eliminate chest congestion about as quickly as it starts. I have never had chest congestion for very long after using this product; it has worked very well for me. Relief of Aches & Pains This medicine helps relieve the aches and pains that come with a cold, although not quite as quickly and as completely as I would like. Cough Suppression Typically when I get a cold, the worst part is the cough that lingers even after the congestion is gone. But this medicine works quite well at suppressing this cough and helping it go away, both during the period of congestion and after the congestion is gone.
