The Robitussin® products and information have been provided by Pfizer, but all opinions are my own.
A tickle in my throat. An awful headache. Zero energy. These are usually the first signs that I’m coming down with something like a cough, cold, or the flu. While I’d love to pretend I’m not sick and hope for the best, I have to take the first steps to feeling better because moms can’t get sick, right?
- Rest. I go back to bed! My body will be able to fight off illness better if I’m well-rested.
- Stay hydrated. I drink lots of water, hot tea, and juices.
- Gargle with salt water. I’m not exactly sure why, but my mom always encouraged me do it and it really helps!
- Turn on the humidifier. The air is so dry in the winter and that can make my throat and nasal passages dry and sore.
- Visit the drugstore. Sometimes I just need relief fast. Luckily Robitussin® 12 Hour Cough Relief and Robitussin® Maximum Strength Severe Multi-Symptom Cough, Cold & Flu are available to help me tackle whatever this cold and flu season throws my way.
One dose of Robitussin® 12 Hour Cough Relief provides up to 12 hours of powerful cough relief, delivering long-lasting cough control from morning until night. Intended for use in adults and children from ages 4 and up, it’s available in orange and grape flavors. When I get a cough it usually lasts for a week or more, so long-lasting relief like this is essential!
Robitussin® Maximum Strength Severe Multi Symptom Cough, Cold & Flu products sooth your throat on contact and offer powerful relief from your worst cough, cold, & flu symptoms and come in both daytime and nighttime formulas. Intended for use in adolescents and adults ages 12 and older, the daytime version now features a better-tasting formula in a raspberry mint flavor.
Don’t throw away the boxes the medicine comes in! I’m not a doctor, but I can tell you that it’s important to remember to always read and keep the cartons for complete warnings and dosing information on Robitussin® products and to only use as directed. Only take these products if you’re suffering from cough, cold, or flu symptoms, and not in combination. Sometimes it’s hard to decide what medicine to take, and reading all the small print can be confusing, so try the Robitussin® Relief Finder to find the right relief for your symptoms.
