That's where SymptomPak really comes in handy! It has all of the most commonly used cold and flu medicines, all in one box, yet each medication is packaged separately, so you only take the medicine for the symptoms that you have. You can take exactly the dose you need as soon as symptoms arise - without the unnecessary ingredients.
Each SymptomPak comes with 5 medications: Acetaminophen (pain/fever reducer), Phenylephrine (decongestant), Dextromethorphan (cough), Guaifenisen (expectorant), Chlorpheniramine (antihistamine). There is also an easy-to-follow dosing guide.
One of the handiest features available on the SymptomPak website is a comparison page. You can compare the ingredients in over a dozen of the name brand over-the-counter cold and flu medications. They also have an online symptom-treatment matcher. Just check your symptoms, click next, and receive instructions on which medicine to take.
SymptomPak makes so much more sense than buying products with medications in them that you don't necessarily need, and it's suitable for anyone in the family over the age of 6. It's available at a number of online retailers including Target, Rite Aid, and Amazon. Refills are also available. SymptomPak is affordable, convenient, and sensible.
