Advantages: Cheap, help sooth pain, clear nose! Cold fighters'
Disadvantages: None so far
This previous winter I had terrible colds and nasties which lasted a long time and were rather frustrating. I don't always like to take pills or tablets as I don't think they are brilliant for you. It came a time when I needed some help to fight my cold! I went to tesco to pick up some lemsip cold and flu tablets as they are what I normally take to relied symptoms! I looked for them and saw these on the shelf! I had a quick look at lemsip and these and decided to go with these as they were so much cheaper and had the same description and said they fought the same problems. These were a third of the price so I though it was a no brainier. At home I use tesco ibuprofen and paracetamol, so I wasn't worries about trying these as I thought they would work like the others did.
You can pick up a pack of 16 capsules for only 65p, you receive two lots of 8. You are meant to take 2 at a time, If you have mild symptoms then you could only take one and this will help too. They are so much cheaper than other cold and flu tablets on the shelf which were over 3 times this price. They are definately a bargain and also they are good quality which justifies there cost, I will never go for more expensive brands again for these type of tablet as these are good and cheap.
What are they for?:
They are to fight all sorts if common cold and flu symptoms, such as headaches, soar thoats, blocked nose etc. they are multi purpose and contain paracetamol. They are useful as they tackle all of the main symptoms in one, so you should feel much better after not so long.
Do they work?:
The short answer is yes!!! They work great, I had a really congested nose and it relieved that. I also had really bad throats and this calmed them down and didn't take long at all, I was shocked at how quickly it worked too. It is never going to get rid of the symptoms, but it makes them better. The capsules are easy to swallow and they are a nice green nd yellow colour. They are not too large and I like the size of them for me. These a strong enough to make a difference. They can however only be used by people over the age of 12, so they are aimed at adults :)
Thanks for reading my review, I recommend that you give these a try next time you have a cold as they worked for me and they are very cheap compared to its competing brands. They are fast acting and a lot better than you may think. These get a 5 star rating from me! Very good cold killers :)
Summary: A better alternative to expensive brands, give them a go! They will work for you I'm sure if it,
