The best!!!! LIFE SAVER

DayQuil/NyQuil it's truly my favorite. DayQuil helped so much getting through my day with the horrible flue that i had.It helped so much with my sore throat BUT by far my favorite thing about DayQuil and the reason why i always look for it when i get sick is that clears up the nasal congestion and works in just a matter of a few hours when you take one tablespoon every 6 hours until you get better. Another great thing is that DayQuil does NOT make you drowsy so you can keep going with your normal day to day duties. When i get sick the worst time for me its at night GRRRRi cant sleep, i cant breath, my chest hurts you name it i get as soon as my heads hits the pillow. NyQuil helps me so much controlling all does fun flue symptoms and nothing helps more during the flue them been able to sleep and really sleep the entire night. Lets remember that NyQuil has antihistamine which makes us really drowsy; whenever you take it make sure you have have at least 8 hours of least and DO NOT drive.

I was so very excited to have recieved my NYQUIL Campaign. It came right on time because I was really suffering from a bad fever and sore throat. As soon as I took a cap of the Severe Berry Cold and flu liquid I started seeing results right away. I was completely better the next day. Just in time to finish my college anatomy project! So if your feeling under the weather , i highly recommend this product! Thank you #BzzAgent for giving me this #freeproduct to test out. I honestly love it!

Best Sleep, Worst Taste

I think that the Nyquil liquid was an all around great product to use when having the cold. When I got sick I wanted to lay around in bed all day of course, I was not looking for an instant miracle. When I took the Nyquil though, It helped me get a great sleep by easing my runny nose and warming my throat to help keep my cough at bay. The fact that it helped me fall asleep so easy should also be said with the warning to make sure you have enough time to sleep it off. On the 2 occasions I used the product, one I was able to sleep as long as I wanted to and I ended up waking refreshed and feeling much better(where I then followed with the Dayquil, which is a miracle in itself.) and the other time I did not give myself enough time and overslept for work, but still felt good with all things considered. When I have a cold I also get the chills and go back and forth from being hot and cold, but I felt surprisingly at ease a while after taking the medicine. The only really complaint I might have was the taste was just AWFUL. I know there is only so much you can do about taste when it comes to medicine, but I would definitely consider making the product in more flavors to help with this. After all the last thing you want to do when your not feeling well is taste something horrendous. Still I would use this product over any product I have tried for my colds so far, name brand or store brand. I received my sample from Nyquil/Dayquil to test and give my honest review. All the opinions stated are that of my own and not influenced by outside parties. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
