    If it's a pretty bad cold (you feel achey, & have stuffy nose &/or fever too) then use Dayquil for the day & Nyquil @ nite. They work really good. The Dayquil gives you a little energy to get through the day if you still have to go to school or work, & the Nyquil helps you sleep better @ nite so you can get better faster plus relieves your symptoms.

    A recent test done on the most popular brands of cough medicine showed that none of them in fact had any beneficial effect on a persons cough.

    Cough is caused by a number of ailments.

    It can be treated by over the counter medicines

    or home remedies. More information available

    It really depends on what kind of cough you have. If it is a dry irritating cough then something with DM, it you have mucous and need to expel it then something with guafinessen. If your are coughing enough to keep you up then DM with codein. If it is serious or if you have a fever then you need to see your doctor.

    if it is dry cough then u can have benadryl and if it is purulent one then you should go for some anti-biotics with cough suppressant
