Very effective, but at what cost..?

This is the most effective cough relief I've ever had in that it completely gets rid of it instantly. I only have a sore throat, so I can't attest to the other symptom reliefs. This product is true to the label as to what it does; however, drinking it is like chugging Listerine that somehow tastes worse. If you're going to use it, I recommend using a chaser like you would to take shots.

Yes, I recommend this product

Vicks to the Rescue: NyQuil/DayQuil SEVERE Berry Cold & Flu

I first want to state that I received this products from Vicks in return for my honest review. I have always been a loyal supporter of the Vicks medicine brand. It was always extremely effective for me. Sadly, since I am breastfeeding, I chose not to take any of the medication. My husband, however, became the reviewer for me. Coincidentally, we both became sick on the same day. My husband took DayQuil and I just powered through it. Halfway through the day, he was in much better spirits than I was. I definitely attribute his progress to DayQuil. My husband also stated that the flavor, albeit medicine-like, was not off putting. It tastes like medicine, but you wouldn't dread taking it due to the flavor. All-in-all it's a good product to knock out even the toughest cold. However, I'd talk to a doctor before taking if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
