Thank you!

DayQuil Severe was my last resort, to be honest. I didn't have much hope, because I had tried so many things before this. One would relieve some of my symptoms. Another would relieve a few different symptoms. Nothing helped me with ALL. I needed something strong and I needed to NOT want to fall asleep.DayQuil Severe was a blessing. I'm not going to say that it cured me or that it made me feel like dancing. I don't think anything would have done that.It DID relieve most of ALL of my symptoms and enabled me to get on with my day without wanting to cry. I didn't feel drowsy. I didn't feel drugged. I just felt good enough to go on.I wish I had tried it sooner!

DayQuil Severe helps you get better sooner

We all know that when you first contact a bad cold how horrible you can feel. Having watched our grandson who was home sick and then feeling those aching feelings and stuffy head a few days later. Just one seemed to do the trick enough with plenty of water, chicken soup and rest to get moving sooner.

This sample could have not come at a better time. My husband and I were down with the cold and really needed something to cure us! DayQuil decreased our cold symptoms within a few hours. Our coughing had practically stopped.
