It’s a known fact that cough, cold and flu spreads best in cold, dry weather. Unfortunately, none of us are totally immune and even the healthiest among us will sometimes get sick. It could just be a small sneeze by someone sitting next to you on the bus or at a movie theater or a tickle in your throat while working in the office.
So when those first symptoms of a cough, cold or flu hit, be sure to take the first steps to feeling better right away!
Luckily, Robitussin® 12 Hour Cough Relief and Robitussin® Maximum Strength Severe Multi-Symptom Cough, Cold & Flu are available to help you tackle whatever this cold and flu season throws your way!
One dose of Robitussin® 12 Hour Cough Relief provides up to 12 hours of cough relief, delivering long-lasting cough control and all day and all night. It comes in orange and grape flavors and is intended for adults and children ages 4 and older.
If you have multiple symptoms, there’s Robitussin® Maximum Strength Severe Multi Symptom Cough, Cold & Flu products that offers powerful relief from your worst cough, cold, & flu symptoms. It comes in both daytime and nighttime formulas and is now formulated to be ‘better tasting’ (compared to Robitussin® Multi-Symptom Cold CF Max) and is also now available in new raspberry mint flavor. This formula is intended for adolescents and adults ages 12 and older.
While Robitussin® is there to tackle the worst cough and cold symptoms, that’s only one part of the equation. So here, I’m sharing with you all my “must haves” to help me feel better when I get sick:
Clear liquids. I always remember my doctor’s advice whenever I get sick: stay hydrated all day by sipping water, juice, broth, and other clear liquids. It helps the immune system to fight sickness, loosens mucus and replaces fluids lost from blowing your nose.
Warm blanket and lemon honey tea. Cuddled up with a nice, soft warm blanket and sipping a glass of warm lemon-honey tea always makes me feel better! I also sometimes add a slice of fresh ginger to my tea to soothe my itchy throat.
Epsom Salts Bath. Depending on my body temperature when I’m sick, I take epsom bath salts to make me feel better. Epsom salts are known to naturally reduce inflammation and draw toxins out of the body. I add at least a full cup and a few essential oils like lavender to hot bathwater and go for a long soak.
Vapor rub. I love massaging menthol-scented vapor rub into my achy joints when I’m sick. I rub a dab on my temples or forehead if I have a headache. If you do try this, watch out because the vapors can sometimes make your eyes water or cause temporary redness on your skin.
TV. Being sick is the perfect excuse to sit around and do nothing but watch movies. Period.
Robitussin recently sent me one of their “Feel Better Care Package” containing all of the items I need for next time I get the sniffles. I thought, “Wow, it’s like they had me in mind when they created this package. Perfect!”.
Those “must haves” + Robitussin® = my “Feel Better Formula”! Yes. Relief is as simple as adding it up! 🙂

* It is important to remember to always read and keep the cartons for complete warnings and dosing information on Robitussin® products and to use as directed
