I have had the worse flu/cold ever coughing, stuffy nose, the works. While it was effective in clearing up my sinuses and making it easier to breathe. I gave me the mother of all migraines.

I had great relief from Max. Strength DM, I haven't had to use it for a long time. The only side effect I had was my urine smelled while I was using it.

I had a deep chest cough and a runny nose and I was losing my voice. The first dose I took brought about relief. I could breath. My side effects were sleeplessness at night, cramps in my feet, thirsty and not hungry. I'm on my 5th pill was going to try and get along without it but my nose began to clog up again. When I took this 5th pill I received immediate relief.
