Comments about Robitussin Multi-Symptom Cold:

This is our go to medicine for when we get a cold, which happens all too frequently in a family of four with two being active teenagers.

Congestion Relief
This does seem to have an effect on sinus congestion but it's not as good as other products, and I end up using another product along with this if the sinus congestion is severe enough. Usually something like Vicks Vapo Rub.

Chest Congestion Relief
This cuts through the worst of our congestion, making our coughs more effective and relieving the congestion. It's the only thing we use for colds in my house.

Relief of Aches & Pains
It relieves aches and pains to a small degree but again I usually end up turning to another product if the aches and pains are severe enough.

Cough Suppression
This works wonderful at cough suppression, while at the same time making your cough more productive. The only time I use anything else for coughs is when the cold is more severe and warrants a Dr. visit and he prescribes something stronger.

Robitussin Multi-Symptom Cold eliminates Cold Miseries

Comments about Robitussin Multi-Symptom Cold:

When you catch a cold or experience cold symptoms, the best medicines are often those that treat many problems at once, eliminating the need to take several different medicines at the same time. There are so many choices, however, that it is often difficult to make a decision but one good option to consider is Robitussin Multi- Symptom Cold Medicine.

Medicine Facts and Commentary:

Robitussin Multi- Symptom Cold Medicine relieves coughs, nasal congestion, and mucus. It utilizes the active ingredients Dextromethorphan HBr (Cough Suppressant), Guaifenesin (Expectorant), and Phenylephrine HCl (Nasal Decongestant) to eliminate many common cold symptoms. The liquid medicine can be used by adults and children age 12 and older and it comes complete with a measuring cup, for added convenience. The medicine needs to be taken every four hours, not to exceed more than six doses per day.

Robitussin Multi- Symptom Cold Medicine is a medicine made by one of the premier brands for cough relief. Robitussin originally made a name for itself as an over the counter medicine for getting coughs under control, but today, its products offer much more. This is one of a few different Robitussin products that go beyond the level of cough relief to help get other symptoms under wraps and lessen their severity.

Robitussin Multi- Symptom Cold Medicine is a useful product for relief of coughs, congestion, and mucus and it handles each of these three areas with relative ease. I find it works best at controlling congestion and coughs, but the mucus relief isn’t bad either. The formula not only works as promised, but it is also non- drowsy so you can take it during the day. One fact that could bother some consumers, however, is that Robitussin Multi- Symptom Cold Medicine does not relieve as many symptoms as other multi- symptom medications. There is no relief from aches and pains, sore throat, or other ailments commonly associated with colds. This could discourage some from buying, but if cough, congestion, and mucus relief is all you need, then it is worth a try.

Bottom Line Viewpoint:

Robitussin has been helping people feel better for decades and its Robitussin Multi- Symptom Cold Medicine is one of many good products manufactured by this company. No, it won’t relieve every symptom you have, but what it does relieve it does quite well. Give it a try he next time you feel a cold coming on and see for yourself what it can do.

Congestion Relief
This product works well at breaking up congestion

Chest Congestion Relief
Pretty good job loosening chest congestion and eliminating mucus from the body.

Relief of Aches & Pains
Not intended for this type of relief.

Cough Suppression
This is a very good product for controlling coughs

The go-to medicine for the common cold!

Comments about Robitussin Multi-Symptom Cold:

I have been using Robitussin since I was a small child with frequent respiratory infections including colds, bronchitis and pneumonia. Now granted, some of these kinds of infection require medications and medical treatment BEYOND Robitussin. However, my family doctor always recommended Robitussin as well to help deal with the symptoms of coughing and congestion. I can still remember my dad giving me this medicine on a spoon, and it always helped so much! Now that I'm an adult and married, I give this medicine to my husband when he catches a cold. It helps relieve his congestion so that he can get a good night's sleep. Now he finds it so helpful that he asks me to get him some whenever he is sick. When you've got a cold or similar infection, this medicine allows you to actually sleep, by relieving the congestion and reducing the coughing that has been preventing you from sleeping in teh first place. I strongly recommend!
