The ingredient list: Aspirin 800 mg. Caffeine 50 mg. Ascorbic acid 45 mg. Menthol 9.5 mg. is concerning because of the aspirin dose during a viral illness. Instead of combination medications, vitamin C and tea may provide similar relief from cold symptoms. The use of nasal saline, cool air mist and staying well hydrated during feeding will also provide relief.
