Cold remedies: An overview of the best ways to treat your cold

Find the best remedy for you

Today there are a staggering number of products on drugstore shelves touting their cold-fighting prowess. But who should you believe? And if these products do relieve you of your symptoms, at what cost? Here we outline the most common and often misunderstood medications used for treating cold and cough symptoms.

First of all, keep in mind that over-the-counter (OTC) medications can only provide temporary relief for your symptoms.  The virus cannot be treated and these medications will not prevent, get rid of, or even shorten the duration of a cold. Remember, also, that most medications have side effects and should not be taken for prolonged periods of time. Always be sure to read the labels of any medications you use to ensure that you are taking them correctly.
