When you’re fighting a cold or flu, you need daytime cold and flu medicine that won’t make you drowsy. Vicks DayQuil SEVERE Cold and Flu Medicine helps relieve 9 of the toughest cold and flu symptoms with proven non-drowsy ingredients and fights cold symptoms like:
Chest congestion results from an accumulation of thick, hard-to-cough up mucus in the lungs and bronchial tubes. You need an expectorant like guaifenesin to help break up, thin, and loosen these secretions so you can cough them up and out. DayQuil SEVERE has guaifenesin to relieve your chest congestion symptoms from a cold or flu.
The flu is often accompanied by a fever, raising your body temperature over 100.4°F. Fevers can make you feel hot and sweaty, or you might start shivering with the chills, as your body continues to boost your temperature. DayQuil SEVERE contains the fever reducer acetaminophen.
Nasal congestion results from inflammation of the nasal passages, which causes that “stuffy nose” feeling. DayQuil SEVERE includes phenylephrine HCl, a decongestant that relieves nasal congestion by shrinking swollen blood vessels in the nasal passages, allowing you to breathe more comfortably.
