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

Highly Recommended!!

My free Twin Pack of Vicks DayQuil/NyQuil Severe Cold & Flu Relief Berry Flavor Liquid (#GotItFree) couldn't have come at a better time! What I thought was a case of the sniffles turned into a a nasty cold. With 2 teenagers, a 6 year old and a 5 year old and no cold medicine to be found any where in our house, I couldn't just take a sick day in bed...the show must go on! And with DayQuil/NyQuil's help it did! The DayQuil had a nice taste and didn't make me drowsy! It cleared up my sniffles in no time and didn't leave me in a "buzzy haze". The NyQuil berry flavor tasted great also and I was surprised at how well it allowed me to sleep! By bedtime my nasal passages began to clear, my cough started to subside and It helped me to get a good nights rest. By the next afternoon I was feeling better and (almost) back to normal. This cold/flu medicine does what it says and does it well. The great flavor allows if to go down easily and it works quickly...that I will vouch for! I used to think all cold/flu medicines were alike...not anymore! Vicks DayQuil/NyQuil Severe Cold & Flu Berry Flavored liquid is in a league all its own!! Highly recommended to all!!
