My go to cold and flu medicine! I use this whenever I start to feel like I am getting a cold and it works within the hour! Very affordable for the number of caplets you get. I love that this pack comes with both daytime and nighttime meds so there is no need to purchase separate medicines!

Your main needs for cold and flu in one pill! Unfortunately, it is that time of the year when cold and flu will be knocking on your door. For me, Tylenol Cold and flu is a must for your medicine cabinet. If you are feeling under the weather, this over the counter medicine takes care of the majority of what could have you sick and in bed. Just a great thing to have on hand.

I really liked this medicine. I feel that it’s non drowsy, fast working & effective, all while being inexpensive. It comes in pill form, & you take 2 at a time. After a few days if consistently taking this, I’m feeling so much better.

Tylenol never fails me when I have a cold. I immediately notice the cough and runny nose fade away. Make sure you get the one that says “severe”. It’s a reasonable price and I highly recommend this product

I think these caplets are effective at managing the symptoms that come with colds and flus. I like that they are in valley form because then it doesn’t taste as bad. This product is also affordable.
