Despite all the research into how to stop a cold, a proven cure for a cold may be a long way down the road. For now, it seems that we have to suffer every year from unpleasant common cold symptoms like coughing and sore throats, and depend on the latest cold medicine every time we fall ill.
Some assume that the best cold medicine attacks multiple cold symptoms at once. This type of over-the-counter combination cold medicine typically includes pain relievers, decongestants, expectorants, and cough suppressants. Although some symptoms may subside while taking combination medicine, it is easy to end up taking more medication than you need. And the side effects can be more uncomfortable than the conditions your cold medicine claims to quell.
Cold Medicine That Relieves Individual Symptoms
There are simpler forms of cold medicine. If you can prioritize treatment of one or two symptoms, symptom-specific remedies can be a safer way of getting cold relief. With an abundance of sore throat remedies, nasal sprays and cough remedies available now, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding something for your needs.
The unavoidable drawback of both combination cold medicine and symptom-specific remedies is that the virus causing your symptoms remains unchecked.
