Did not work one bit!

I took the DayQuil part of this when I had a cold and it did nothing for me. I paid $15 for this and it didn't not help relieve any of my symptoms, not even for 5mins Don't waste your money

No, I don't recommend this product

this product has poor instructions

After I read the instructions, I am thoroughly confused, I only have questions. What is a CaPlet and is a dose 2 caplets and why are there twice as many severe cold Dayquil's as compared to Nyquilles? Does this mean I take 2 doses of dayquil and one nyquil daily?Then it emphasizes do not use more than directed.From these directions for use, I do not know how many that is.

No, I don't recommend this product

Confusing Dosages

According to your website and the directions on the box you are to take this product every 4 hours with water. However, on the splinter packages it reads you should not take this product more than 4 dosages in a 24 hour period because you'll be at risk for severe liver damage.

Yes, I recommend this product
