Nasal congestion, sinus pressure, headaches and body aches are just some of the nasty symptoms we all can suffer from when we catch that dreaded cold. I don't know about y'all but sometimes those colds knock me out for the count. It just drains my body and all I want to do is lay up in my bed until I get better. I hate having to have a box of tissues, over the counter medicines, gingerale and a pile of used up tissues surrounding me.
However, the one thing I hate the most is the mouth breathing. No matter how much you blow your nose to clear it out, your nose is still left plugged and you can't breath out of it. It is especially worse at night when you are trying to go to bed. Ugh!!! That is so frustrating because all you want to do is get a good night's sleep so hopefully you feel better in the morning but your sinuses have another plan for you.
That's when you drag your drained body out of bed, throw on some sweats and you head out in public with your hair a mess and nose all red from all the time you spend blowing it to get you some over the counter medication that will hopefully be worth the price and help you either get some sleep or help you make it through the day. But which one do you buy? I have tried so many different ones and some work for one cold but the next time I get a cold it doesn't work. I have even listened to advice I received from coworkers and bought the medicine they suggested but was disappointed with the results. The majority of them just didn't take care of my symptoms or they just made me tired...but I would still toss and turn and wake up due to the coughing and stuffiness.
So, when I was contacted from Crowdtap to review Advil Sinus Congestion & Pain, I agreed to do it but I have to admit, I went on believing that this over the counter medicine would be like all the rest and just be a waste of money and high hopes.
According to the package, Advil Sinus Congestion & Pain claims to relieve common cold and flu symptoms: Nasal Congestion, Sinus Pressure, Nasal Swelling, Headache, Fever and Body Aches for four hours per dose. I checked out how much this medicine is at Walmart and you can pick up a pack of 10 tablets for $8.49 but a 20 pack for $8.98. So, is it worth the money and the high hopes of feeling even the slightest bit better? Check out my video review below.
