Warming Relief Formula is Awful

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about THERAFLU® ExpressmaxTM Daytime Severe Cold & Cough:

It was ok at relieving my cough and congestion, but I felt like I had a fever every time I took it due to the "warming relief". The heat came in waves and only seemed to add an extra symptom to my illness rather than bringing any relief.

Almost instant relief!

By 

from Fairbanks

Comments about THERAFLU® ExpressmaxTM Daytime Severe Cold & Cough:

I have had a sore throat for a couple days now, it getting worse each day. I have been taking motrin and Tylenol every 4-6 hours as prescribed. I gargled with salt water, took honey and cinnamon, drank tea, ate soup, but not until I started taking this, did I feel so much better. Almost instant relief. 1 hour later, and I do not feel sore at all. No urges to cough either. I'm tired, but haven't been sleeping so it could be the medicine or the lack of sleep, guessing it's the latter. Anyways, GREAT product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Works but caused gas

By 

from Tulsa Oklahoma

Comments about THERAFLU® ExpressmaxTM Daytime Severe Cold & Cough:

The product did what it said, throat and nose wa s no longer hurting or stuffy. The only downside is waking up the next day to an awful pain and discomfort in my stomache. I think the sugar alcohol used didn't set well with my digetive tract and caused some serious gas to the point of a painful gas bubble. Needless to say I stopped using it. So heads up if you have a sensitivity to sorbitol or certain sugar mixtures they use to make the "berry" flavor.
