I know it sounds terribly sarcastic, but that magical cure only exists in fantasy (AKA La La) Land. Try Zicam though, those little remedies work well.

if you take it soon enough zicam works wonders...it does really work...also airborne (god that stuff tastes awful) helps...

if that fails...you could get some hybernol like farley had on SNL that one time....sleep right through flu season

I don't know... you don't want to be like the lady I used to work with. From about September until April, she always had a lit cigarette in one hand, coffee cup in the other, and a NyQuil bottle tucked under arm. Well, the cigarette and coffee weren't limited to that time frame... and of course, this was before the "no smoking" rules kicked in....

This one is Really Easy Eat as Many Oranges as you can in the One Day this Always Works for My Family and My Self at least 10 or twelve in the same Day and the Next Day you'll Feel a Whole lot Better Remember to do this as soon as the symptoms Start to get the Best Results. Good Luck

Zicam and zync tablets work, but only if taken very early ...as soon as symptoms start. They may not eliminate a cold, but it's been my experience they can make it much shorter and less severe.

Didn't you get you flu shot? :blink:

alot of studies are calming that a drug called cold-fx is really good at preventing the flu and if you get it, it'll be for shorter periods and less extreme.

Or else you could try Buckly's........Buckly's, it tastes awful, but it works :help:

Off topic but is anyone else worried about Bird flu (H5N1) since it's being located in suburbs of Moscow :whistling:

I gotta agree with the zycam... however, if you are congested... go get some chinese food and order some extra hot mustard. now that will clear you right up!!!
