not an improvement

We have used Dayquil and Nyquil for years and liked the idea of both products in one box. The new severe was not effective for either of us. The contents of the package are odd, the directions are terrible and worst of all the effectiveness is gone. We will be returning the product. Please bring back the old formula.

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

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
