It seemed to help some. I have Copd so most of these over the counter meds don't work. , but this one helped some.

Finally, a good nights rest

I loved my NyQuil sample. I had a slight cold and was having a hard time sleeping. My NyQuil sample suppressed the cold and I finally got a full nights rest. I will be adding this to my next grocery list.
