Viewpoints logoChicago – Oct. 15, 2012 – October begins the dreaded cold and flu season. Reviewers say these nighttime cold and flu medicines on Viewpoints (www.viewpoints.com) best relieve the most common flu symptoms: fever, cough and body aches.

CVS Multi-Symptom Cold/Flu Relief Liquid

The store brand at CVS rates highest among liquids.

Best nighttime liquid:

CVS Multi-Symptom Nighttime Cold/Flu Relief Liquid ($6.50, 8 oz.) earns the Viewpoints website’s highest rating (98/100) based on value.

“The flavor is nice- but for some reason the CVS version does not taste as sickening sweet as NyQuil does. It works just as well as NyQuil and when I found it in a dual package for only $6, I was sold.” Caprig

Best nighttime powder:

Theraflu Nightttime Severe Cold & Cough Powder

Theraflu is popular with Viewpoints reviewers who prefer a powder mixed with warm water to syrup.

Theraflu Nighttime Severe Cold & Cough ($5, 6 packets) is a good option for those who don’t like the consistency of syrup. The powder (85/100) mixes with warm water.

“Theraflu has a lemon like flavor, that can taste bitter. If you find it not to your liking, try adding a tea bag to the boiling water and a little sugar.” Prophetess3

“The effects are almost immediate and it just makes you feel warm inside.” paperxflower

Vicks NyQuil Cold & Flu LiquiCaps

Vicks NyQuil, in pill form, gets positive reviews for its effectiveness without unpleasant taste.

Best nighttime pill:

Vicks NyQuil Cold & Flu Relief LiquiCaps ($8.50, 16 capsules) is also highly recommended (87/100), especially for congestion.

“I have been taking NyQuil for years and feel that it is still working as good as ever – I can totally trust it! The liquicaps are my favorite because you don’t have to taste the flavor of the powerful medicine but you know you’re going to get some relief!” –chosengurl
