You might as well just throw your quid down the drain.

None of these things work.

If you must take anything Sudafed may help as a decongestant. Other than that you might as well just stick your head over a bowl of hot steamy water and drink plenty of fluids.:-D

If you don't like taking capsules, Lidl sell Beechams powders for 99p

Actually, they DO work.

However... it's not a good idea to take decongestants. They glue up the catarrh in the sinuses etc, which leads to infection. It's best to let catarrh run its course. If you have a productive cough, you must spit, since the virus is expelled in it, so if you keep it in your body, it stays longer. I think that regular baths to help body temp, paracetamol, and hot drinks made with slices of ginger and a squeeze of lemon, are the best thing. Also, soup made using chicken for stock REALLY does help clear the tubes. I also think its important to steer clear of any dairy produce as it really makes catarrh much worse.

I have implemented these things over the past week as Ive had a horrible cold virusy thing and they have all helped.

I think that is mostly because a lot of people don't understand that the Flu and the Cold are NOT the same thing.

Nothing but rest and keeping warm will help you over the Flu, a flu jab might help prevent it but certainly won't cure it.

Products like this are designed to help your body work through a cold, these are not cures they merely help to open your airwaves and alleviate the discomfort for the duration of the cold.

It may be worth stocking up on the new range. Just in case there’s an avian flu outbreak.

Indians are the best cure!

Works on Man Flu and child birth to!

I am going to guess they are past their sell by date...by about 3 years.

Active ingredients:

Day capsules: paracetamol, phenylephrine, caffeine.
Night capsules: paracetamol, phenylephrine.

16 unbranded paracetamol cost around 16p - take a couple with a coffee if you want the caffeine.

The phenylephrine is a decongestant, and it's arguable whether it causes more problems than it resolves.

True and if you have a runny nose and blowing tonnes of green **** out and gone through 10 toilet rolls then this stuff will make it a million times worse. Anything with Phenylephrine should be avoid if these are your symptoms. If you suffer like this then take an antihistamine, that will stop the systems dead. However if you got a blocked nose and cant breath then take Phenylephrine, but tablets do not work, best method is snorting ie Vicks sinex - as for the rest throw the pound down the drain.

Also drink hot water (pint), 3 lemons and some ginger :-)
#13
Garlic soup! is the best cure.
#14
500mg and phenylephrine hydrochloride 6.1mg and caffeine 25mg

500mg of paracetamol is 'normal tablet' dose = 1p
6.1mg of phenylephrine hydrochloride is 1 /10th of the dose in boots decongestant tablets [less than 20 p each so you get 2p of active ingredient here]
as for the caffeine
Amount of Caffeine in Foods
(based on 12 ounce serving)

Coffee
Brewed - 202 mg
Decaffeinated - 7.5 mg
Instant - 142 mg
Starbucks coffee grande - 412 mg

In this neck of the woods most people crying off with 'flu' or 'a viral infection' have nothing more than a bad cold. Try early nights and a drop of rum. Might not cure you but at least you'll feel better.
#16
crikey, I'll vote hot just to keep this thread of old fashioned remedies near the top! Phenylephrine always helps clear my sinussy headache, but you cant beat fresh ginger and lemon infused water and plenty of expectoration! (I stir in a teaspoon of honey for taste and I understand it helps the mucus coagulate)!

Don't think I could swallow one of them..... :roll:

A curry might do the trick tho ;-)

Just ask for Galpsude at your local pharmacy.

These branded ones have very little amounts of pseudoephedrine compared to the 'over the counter' tablets.

People will always buy the branded versions but they are worse in this case, the ones direct from your local Pharmacy are definitely better.

Sorry for all the deep doctor stuff but my mum works at the doctors so shes drummed this information into me.

Still hot deal though but i'll stick to my other tablets :)
#19
I too resent paying a lot for what amounts to some tarted up paracetamol in a nice box. However when I had a cold recently someone gave me a partly-used bottle of Night Nurse so I thought I might as well give it a go. I was amazed at how much better I felt. Shows the power of the whole psychological package.
#20
Try home-made chicken soup laced with as much ginger, garlic and green chillies as you can handle. Works like nothing else on earth :) Just don't breathe on anyone afterwards...
#21
I heard KFC is even better than chicken soup...

come on that is a least as good as some of the stuff being shared here...
#22
Ive also heard that boiling an onion and eating it is good , along with the usual hot baths, plenty of liquids etc
#23
I think everybody needs these at the moment! Why am I always I'll at xmas! :(

#25
You guys should try Actifed syrup , its the only thing for me which cures runny noses, dont take before driving tho, lots of drowsiness!
#26
boil some lemonade in a saucepan it does the trick.Makes you sweat it out.
#27
Also the correct love and care is needed for Man Flu. The wife learnt that after this government health video below :-)

alot of people knocking lemsip in here

if i ever get a flu i find drinking lemsip max on a 4 hour cycle along with plenty of water, tea, rest and sleep
(like 14 hours) in a comfy bed sorts me out in 24-36 hours

taking a multivitamin helps too


my metabolism is quite fast too so maybe im lucky with my genes

absolutely right, pseudoephedrine is the only real thing that works along with paracetamol and ibuprofen
