User Comments:


For Cold Symptoms “Every time I have a cold, this is the only OTC drug that makes going to work possible. Occasionally makes me drowsy, but it dries the cold up really wellNeed to drink a lot of water as you get a slightly dry throat”

For Cold Symptoms “To be honest the first time I used it, I thought it was great. But this time it’s not effective at all. Still have runny nose, watery eyes etc.”

For Cold Symptoms “This is my absolute favourite for colds with runny and partially blocked nose, itchy and watery eyes and sneezing. This antihistamine does make me drowsy a tiny bit but I can go to work as normal and don’t really see any difference. I tried combining some other antihistamines and phenylephrine but I keep going back to good old Actifed.The only downside – it really makes my mouth and throat dry, so I guess I might try taking half of the tablet instead.”

For Cold Symptoms “When used for colds, Actifed works well for drying up post nasal drip that causes near constant coughing, especially at night. It does cause drowsiness but not a problem for night time use. I can get a nearly full night of rest. However, with subsequent use on following nights, Actifed’s effectiveness lasts only half as long.”
