OK, sometimes it pays to buy namebrand. I have been taking the store-brand of Dayquil and Sudafed and they were doing NOTHING against this cold that I have had for more than a week. Last night, my wonderful, loving hubby went out and bought the good stuff. I took some about 2 hours ago and I can FINALLY think somewhat clearly and the snot is starting to slow down. That's been the most annoying part of this cold. I can't believe how much mucus my body has been producing. And it's not allergies. It's a blessing that neither Tim, nor any of the kids I take care of have gotten sick either.
