Default What's your cold cure?

Been sick since yesterday afternoon and I'm hurting tonight. I just took some Aleve Cold so I can get some form of sleep. Other than that, I pound green tea and Airborne. Any good remedies?

+1 on the green tea. 100% orange or apple juice, some good sleep and a couple pills of your favorite cold medicine.

Cough and blow as much crap out of your lungs you can handle, wash hands often.

I guess thats what always works best for me. Its kind of standard I guess...

I jack myself up on caffeine until I can take a day off, then sleep for about 24 hours. Works like a charm

Homepathic cold remedy containing zinc... just hold it in your mouth and let it disolve

I just got over a bad flu myself, this is what really saved the day! Expensive (the 1200mg) but worth it! Over the counter too!

I felt better soon after taking these horse pills

Booze. Drink so much that your BAC becomes so high that nothing can survive in it.

Whiskey is a good choice for that!
