I use this over Dayquail

By 

from USA

Comments about Sudafed PE Cold + Cough:

With NyQuail does it for me, DayQuail simply did not. I have had good experiences with Sudafed before and decided to give this try. I loved it, it cleared up my runny nose and helped me breath. It helped me so I could actually do my job and not suffer though my shift. It did not help me with my cough though, but to be fair only one cough medicine has ever helped me .

Congestion Relief
It helped my congestion, I could breath though my nose when I took this. I was not suffering when I was at work. People could not tell I had a cold after I took this.

Chest Congestion Relief
It helped me relieve some but not all. It takes away the weight you get on your chest when you get a cold.

Relief of Aches & Pains
I am a huge baby, to worst part of a cold for me is my chest hurting. It helps relieve this. It takes away the dull ache I get when i get a cold. It takes away the weight on your chest when you take this.

Cough Suppression
It did not help me suppress my cough, but to be fair only one medicine has ever done this.

Sudafed Cold and Cough: Average Medicine, Average Relief

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Sudafed PE Cold + Cough:

Cold medicines- there are so many to choose from, it can become overwhelming. Most of them offer some level of relief and even the most average among them can be counted on to lessen at least some cold symptoms. One brand I have tried with a fair amount of success is **Non- Drowsy Sudafed Cold and Cough.**



**Medicine Commentary:**



Non- Drowsy Sudafed Cold and Cough utilizes several active ingredients: Acetaminophen 250 mg. (Pain reliever/fever reducer.), Dextromethorphan HBr 10mg. (Cough Suppressant), Guaifenesin 100 mg. (Expectorant), and Pseudophedrine HCI 30 mg. (Nasal Decongestant). The drug is intended to help control a large number of symptoms so that you don’t have to take multiple medications.



My overall experience with Non- Drowsy Sudafed Cold and Cough has been fair, but far from great. I find it works well at suppressing coughs and relieving congestion, but it doesn’t do as much for other symptoms, such as pain or sore throat. I usually have to reach for the sore throat spray or sore throat lozenge when I take this Sudafed product.



One the positive side, this Sudafed product is non- drowsy, which means it can be taken during the day without worry. It also sells for a fair price per caplet, but consumers need to bear in mind that two caplets are usually required per dose and they last only four hours.



**Bottom Line Viewpoint:**



My bottom- line on Non- Drowsy Sudafed Cold and Cough is that it is a very average product that offers some good relief but isn’t as effective as other multi- symptom products. Add to that the fact that two tablets last only four hours and you have a drug that is only average overall.

Congestion Relief
Average congestion relief

Chest Congestion Relief
Breaks up some chest congestion

Relief of Aches & Pains
Relieves minor pain

Cough Suppression
Cough relief is mediocre.

Comments about Sudafed PE Cold + Cough:

I think Sudafed is a good cold medicine to get rid of cold. Its quick and fast and you do not have to be in bed for weeks.  It works very quick and it does not make you tired.  One thing I like about a cold medicine is that you can take and not make you sleepy; that way you can get things done during the day.  I would recommend Sudafed as a quick cold relief medicine. i would rate this item as four stars.  When you need the rest you can get it.  The price is very affordable.  Lots of medicines make you tired and feel tired all day. This medicine does not.  It gets rid of your cold right away.  If you want to get rid of your cold in a couple of days instead of dragging for weeks and weeks try Sudafed.  Sudafed is affordable, and quick acting.  I love the fact that it is non drowsy.  For an affordable cold medicine try Sudafed for fast quick relief that is non drowsy. You will be feeling like yourself in no time.

Doesn't work for very long

By 

from Agawam, MA

Comments about Sudafed PE Cold + Cough:

I don't get sick often, but when I do...

On the way home early from work today I stopped off to get some "sick necessities".  Along with cough drops & tissues, I purchased **Non-Drowsy, Sudafed PE Multi-Symptom Cold & Cough **medicine.  These caplets are coated for easy swallowing & are supposed to treat fever, minor aches & pains, nasal & sinus congestion, chest congestion & cough.

The regular dosage is to take two pills every four hours.  Again I don't get sick often and even when I do I don't usually take anything for it.  Since I don't usually take any medication (and I'm quite petite), I usually get away with the children's dosages.  With this one, I decided to take the regular adult dose.  After 2 - 2 1/2 hours, I can already feel the medicine wearing off.  I can't even really say it did much to relieve my symptoms either.  I've taken two doses now, and am due for another in about 1/2 an hour, but after this box is gone, I'll probably invest in something else!
