Many choices: There is no magic pill out there and it all depends on what symptoms your are trying to treat. A decongestant for a cold or flu is available is many different combinations over the counter under different brand names. Look at the ingredients, Pseudoephedrine is a good decongestant avilable in combination with other medications. For allergies, a non drowsy long acting antihistamine is allegra (fexofenadine).
