Nothing can prevent or cure colds and flu, since most are caused by viruses (washing hands often and staying hydrated are your best defenses, Khatri says). But, a combo drug can cut the “fog” that comes with congestion, along with cough, sore throat, and runny and stuffy noses. Look for a combination product with a nasal decongestant (“pseudoephedrine” or “phenylephrine” on the label), a cough suppressant, and a pain reliever (an NSAID or acetaminophen). Try Tylenol Cold & Flu or Sudafed PE Pressure + Pain + Cough.
