The Common Cold- Whaddya Got?

Unread postby peeker643 » Tue Apr 07, 2009 2:18 pm

I'm clearly dying with this cold. So is my oldest.

Sore throats, congestion, runny noses, coughing up chunks of lung. Sleep doesn't come easily but when it does it won't end.

What do you guys do? Daytime and night time plus in general (jam the vitamin c tabs, oj, etc).......

Take an expectorant a few times during the day. Mucinex works well. Get Mucinex (not Mucinex D) if you have high blood pressure. Cough that weak stuff outta there, young man.

NyQuil before bed.

Alka Seltzer at night. During the day, I try not to do too much of anything cause I don't want to mix medicines. Just sack up and get through the day. Since you have all girls, they can't really sack up. Sudafed Cold & Cough isn't bad for an OTC.

Progresso Hearty Rotini Chicken Soup, loaded with hot sauce and garlic. I've sworn by it for years, and my wife learned to agree with me, as it's what she eats when she has a nasty cold.

Echinacea (sp?) is something I've used inthe past and it works, key is taking it the instant you feel it coming on.

Also done the echinacea, zinc, vitamin C routine as a cure and preventative measure, hard to say if it works b/c I have the immune system of Wolverine 99% of the time.

If you can stand a little grogginess early the next morning definitely take some NyQuil.

I missed the zicam opportunity early on so now it's just keeping the misery to a minimum.

Nyquil does a good job but damn if it doesn't kick ass the next morning.

I knew you were going to say that. :bag:

Also, one other thing, if you go to Wal Mart, Walgreens, wherever, they have Shower Soothers. You put one in the bottom of the shower (they look like urinal "mints" :lmfao: ) and it dissolves while you are in there, can be helpful as well.

:lmfao: I don't think Peeks can allow that to occur, especially in the case of his young daughter, unless he says it is medicinal purpose. :pop:

Just getting over it myself Peeks. Mucinex is proven, money.

Also, a nice hot toddy in the evening before bed does wonder for a sore throat. Hot water, lemon juice, honey, and a shot of bourbon and you're good to go.

Theraflu Severe Cold and Cough Caplets make the symptoms go away. Mix one part Theraflu with 2 parts Jim Beam...

Never ever miss the Zicam window. It's expensive, but sometimes I'll start it after a major weekend of late nights or just when I'm feeling run down. Zinc never hurts. The stuff works for me in a big way. Still have a cold, but very little nasal congestion and I usually can kick it in 3-4 days as opposed to one that hangs on forever. Also, make sure that it doesn't turn into some type of upper respritory infection, where 10 days of Augmentin and a Cortisone shot will lay those breeding bacteria to waste.

Zicam is the shizznit. After all, it's homeopathic.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

for me it has always been Alka Seltzer Night time along with a shot of Turkey. Put on a sweatshirt and sweat pants and sweat that thing out.

They know have Vick's wall plug ins we discovered when our 6 month old had congestion after his bought with bronchitis. That thing is like crack, plus it owrks. The whole room has that lovely Vick's smell

Colds kick my ass......

I've found Zyrtec D will keep everything opened up. I use it for allergies, but it will do colds too....

I started keeping packs of those little Listerine Breath things. Their like little sheets 1/2" x 1" of Listerine.......Those damn things hit with a bang, and will open you right up. I eat the hell outta them with a cold........

The fastest way I ever got over a cold (over night!) was I got absolutely hammered on Vodka and OJ.....Screwdrivers..........woke up the next morning so friggin dried out I was cured....

Had a headache hell wouldn't have, but the cold was gone....

Rub some on below your nose, heavily.

Put a ton of it on your chest, with a warm wash cloth over it and a sweatshirt.

Take some nightime cold relief.

Is OE800 the generic version of that? It was next to the C45D at the store. Kind of like the Top Care line at Walmart or the old Seaway stuff was at Fazios/Pick n Pay?

Hey Peeker..

I rarely get sick and I think it is due to my rarity to take any time of pill or cough medicine.

But on those occassions when I do get what you got, I sweat it out. Put on the under armour, a hoody or two, couple of socks, turn up the heat, turn the water bed up to 100 and lay under the covers. Pop in a couple of Cold Ease's to sooth the sore throat.

Stick a teaspoon of that stuff in a big bowl of hot (just off the boil) water..... stick your face over the bowl and put a towel over your head to keep the fumes in....... breathe heavily for about 15-20mins..... you will cry like a bitch but it'll clear out your system.
