I don't think so: I think most over the counter meds for colds are worse than useless.The side effects can be as bad as the symptoms. Coldeez is the only clinically proven treatment that shortens the course of a viral upper respiratory tract infection. Fluids, a Vick's nasal inhaler, blowing not sniffing are your best bet. Chloraseptic or cepastat can ease a sore throat and help with a tickle. See doc if no better
