These daytime sinus relief pills are incredible. I first purchased them a few years ago when I got the flu. They gave me relief even when I was incredibly sick. They are really powerful. I have continued to use them ever since. Within 15 minutes of taking them, I have relief from even sever sinus infections. They are somewhat expensive but absolutely worth it. They are really high in quality. I would highly recommend this product.

Effectiveness
They are incredibly effective. They gave me relief even when I had something as severe as the flu. I take these when I have a severe sinus infection or something minor. They work for both. They will help you breathe throughout the day.

Ease of Use
They are incredibly easy to use. Just take them with water in the morning and let if give you relief during the day.

Immediacy
I felt relief within 15 minutes of taking these. I was pleased with how quickly I got relief. It also sticks with you for multiple hours.

Those who have bouts with sinus problems will often resort to almost anything to make the problem go away and with so many over the counter drugs on the market, it isn’t too difficult to find something to try. One possible drug that may help is **Dayquil Sinex Liquicaps.**

** **

**Medicine Commentary:**



Dayquil Sinex Luiquicaps are easy to take drugs with a slick texture so they go down easy. The active ingredients in this drug include acetaminophen (325 mg) for pain relief and Phenylephrine HCI (5 mg) which serves as a nasal decongestant.



I have had a good deal of success with Dayquil Liquid, but this liquicap version isn’t quite as effective. The product is supposed to relieve pain, pressure, congestion, etc. and it does make some difference. But its ability to break up a really tough case of congestion is only average.



Dayquil Sinex Luiquicaps need to be taken in pairs every four hours. This means they are not likely going to last very long. The price per pill is low, but over the course of a day, there is a good chance you will go through four, six, or even eight pills as you struggle to get your symptoms under control.



**Bottom Line Viewpoint:**



Dayquil Sinex Luiquicaps don’t cause any side effects and they don’t cause drowsiness, which is good for working adults and students who need to stay alert. They are inexpensive, too, but the ability to control cold and allergy symptoms is only average. I will use them if there is nothing else in the medicine cabinet, but there are far better over the counter drugs available.

Effectiveness
Offers some relief, but it's nothing incredible

Ease of Use
Caplets are easy to take

Immediacy
Takes some time to get going

Vicks Dayquil Sinus Liquicaps

By 

from USA

Comments about Vicks DayQuil Sinex Daytime Sinus Relief Liquicaps:

This medicine really does help sinus issues, but boy does it make me feel like I am on speed! After an hour or so I start getting super jittery and lightheaded and my mouth gets very dry. It lasts for a few hours too! As for my sinus symptoms I did get some relief from them and I felt better for most of the day. It really helped the sinus pressure in my head and face, my nasal congestion was cleared up, and my fever was gone. I just wish they could make this medicine without the horrible after effects. Maybe had I taken it on a full stomach this would not have happened.

Effectiveness
Worked well at relieving my sinus symptoms and keeping them gone for most of the day.

Ease of Use
I think liquicaps are easier to take than other forms of pills. They are soft and seem to go down much smoother. I choke way less on this form.

Immediacy
Took about an hour before I started feeling better. The sinus pressure was the first thing that I had relief from. It took a little longer before my nasal passages were cleared up.

A great product for those with sinus issues

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA USA

Comments about Vicks DayQuil Sinex Daytime Sinus Relief Liquicaps:

I get a lot of sinus issues in the early spring and late summer when the weather changes. This can lead to bad headaches and congestion. DayQuill Daytime Sinus Relief is a godsend during these times. It works quickly at getting rid of my sinus congestion and either preventing or making my sinus headaches go away. It doesn't have any strage side effects and I find it typically works within fifteen to twenty minutes of taking it. I highly recommend this product if you have sinus pressure or get sinus headaches.

Effectiveness
It works fast and is the most effective non prescription I've tried. When I take it early on, it prevents me from getting a sinus migraine. It also clears everything out without making you foggy.

Ease of Use
The dose and use instructions are very clear and it is very easy to take.

Immediacy
I usually notice relief starting within fifteen minutes of taking it and it seems to be in full effect within a half hour of taking the pills.

Too strong.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Vicks DayQuil Sinex Daytime Sinus Relief Liquicaps:

I'm not really a fan of Nyquil or Dayquil products. They're just too strong for me. The actual liquids I can handle because I can cut the dose down to half or less, but the liquid gelcaps can't really be reduced. I tried this medication when I had a very bad sinus infection hoping that it would work, but it just made me feel disconnected and "out of it" all day until it wore off. And it didn't really do much for my symptoms.

Effectiveness
This medication didn't really work for my symptoms. It helped my headache somewhat and maybe relieved my allergy symptoms a bit, but I probabl won't use it again because the side effects were almost worse than the original symptoms.

Ease of Use
I do not like the gelcaps for this medication. Dayquil is so strong that you need to be able to control the dose yourself (I usually take half a dose or less of the liquid), and you can't do that with a liquid gelcap.

Immediacy
The side effects started very quickly, within about 15 minutes. My headache was gone in about 45 minutes, and what relief I got from allergy symptoms took about an hour.

Didn't help me much

By 

from USA

Comments about Vicks DayQuil Sinex Daytime Sinus Relief Liquicaps:

I had bought Vick's DayQuil Sinex Daytime Sinus relief a couple years ago and I have to say I was quite disappointed from the results. I was suffering from a congested nose and I had sever nasal pressure. I had called my husband when he was on his way home for work to stop and pick me up some sinus relief medicine. He had came back with Dayquil Sinex Liquicaps. The liquid caps are too big if you ask me. Sometimes it was difficult for me to get the caps down my throat. After about 10 minutes of taking the sinex liquid caps, I felt some relief from the nasal pressure and I was able to breath a little out of my nose. But the relief did not last that long. Within the hour after taking DayQuil Sinex my nasal congestion came back and the nasal pressure I had in my nose was back. I would suggest trying another sinus medicine for relief from nasal congestion or nasal pressure, because DayQuil Sinex does not work that well on them symptoms.

Big disappointment

By 

from USA

Comments about Vicks DayQuil Sinex Daytime Sinus Relief Liquicaps:

Living in Ohio with all the changes in weather really takes a toll on your sinuses. I could never find any medicine besides benadryl that would work, but during the day I couldn't take that because of the drowsiness. I was so excited to see there was finally something i could take as needed that was non-drowsy. I take the recommend dose and I started to feel better but then almost fell asleep behind the wheel because it made me more tired. I think the drowsiness makes it more intense than bendaryl. Overall the sinus really started to drain down my throat making me cough incredibly much. I wouldn't recommend this product.

I rely on Dayquil Sinex when I get sinus infections!

By 

from Valparaiso, IN

Comments about Vicks DayQuil Sinex Daytime Sinus Relief Liquicaps:

When I feel a sinus infection beginning, I start taking this. I can't take products like Benadryl because they make me drowsy, but I don't have that problem with the Dayquil. This product helps to clear up my sinuses, and also contains tylenol, so I am not taking an overabundance of medicine. It is also nice because it can be taken multiple times during the day, depending on how you are feeling. I use this to lessen my sinus congestion, relieve sinus headaches, and on those days when there is just too much pollen for my allergy medicine to handle. This is a great alternative when you can't go to the doctor right away, or if you have to wait to get an antibiotic because you could have a cold instead. I have used this product almost exclusively for my sinus infections, and have been able to treat them using this instead of having to get an antibiotic in all but one case. This product is great for relieving my sinus congestion!

Dayquil Caps Work

By 

from Carol Stream, IL

Comments about Vicks DayQuil Sinex Daytime Sinus Relief Liquicaps:

My sister was out visiting when she came down with a terrible cold. She asked for any medicine I may have in my medicine cabinet and I had DayQuil Sinus. It was great because it is a non drowsy medication and it did not leave her feeling very tired or fatigued. It comes in an easy to use capsule and you don't have to pour it out into one of those little glasses to ingest the medication. The pills are easy to swallow and aren't too big or bulky to get down your throat. I have the 20 count and the medication with coupons was a very affordable price. You have a name and a company which you can trust. It was so nice to have something on hand and effective to allievate the uncomfortable side effects of sinus/cold issues.

Dayquil Liquicaps Sinus Works

By 

from Palm Bay, FL

Comments about Vicks DayQuil Sinex Daytime Sinus Relief Liquicaps:

Living in Florida for most of my life, I have learned that the allergy season begins early. Most years, plants and grasses start blooming in January. While most of the country is still dealing with snow, Floridians are seeing yellow pollen on their cars, blowing into the open windows, and yes, filling their sinus passages. I generally get sinus headaches due to sinus pressure and often resulting in a sinus infection. This pollen season, I found a new product that I had not tried before---DayQuil Liquicaps Sinus medicine. I had coupons to use and a rebate from my local drug store, so why not try it? I was very impressed in the results. I previously had used excedrin to help with sinus headaches, but it contains so much caffein that I could not use it late in the day or I'd be up all night. The Dayquil sinus did not give me the jitters and keep me from sleeping at night while still helping with the allergy symptoms and headache. I's give it a good review!
