Save your money! I was diganosed with Influenza A and took this medication for the 5 days it provided zero relief!! I was still sick for an additional week and devloped a ear infection following my recovery for the flu. This medication did not relieve me of any symptoms and I still missed a week of work. Waste of time and money.

Laid around for 2 days, feeling a bit better each day. On 3rd day, very headache-y but felt better once I was up walking around. Only noticeable side effects: headaches, easily winded walking up stairs (never usually ... Show Full Comment
