Advil Cold & Sinus for your Cold Drama

This post has been sponsored by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare.  Any opinions stated in the post are 100% my own.

Winter is one rough season when it comes to colds and sinuses.  When I catch a cold my nose gets all stuffy and my sinuses hurt, and I feel cruddy all over 🙁

To combat the drama that comes with a cold, I believe that plenty of herbal tea (with honey or lemon), a humidifier, and lots of rest is the antidote.  Being able to snuggle down with a blanket and watch Netflix while keeping hydrated is the only perk of having a cold… if only I always had time for that.   Because colds and sinus troubles generally hit me at the worst possible time.  You know when I have a major deadline to meet, I’m scheduled to travel in the next 48 hours, right before a major holiday I agreed to host in my home, or I have to be at an important event.

There are so many options in the cold and flu aisle, but when your cold and flu symptoms become too much, only Advil® Cold & Sinus is the #1 pharmacist recommended brand to treat your worst symptoms.  Ask for it at the pharmacy counter.

Advil® Cold & Sinus combines Advil® – the number-one selling pain reliever – and a powerful nasal decongestant to provide fast, powerful relief.  It’s a combination that makes sense because nasal congestion is often a result of inflammation.  (Did you know that?  I did not!  Keep reading this is interesting stuff!)  The blood vessels in the tissues lining your nose and sinuses literally swell up due to inflammation. Inflammation in the nose and sinuses, like that which occurs anywhere else in the body, is part of a healthy body’s immune efforts, and not the work of harmful pathogens or an infection.  (You might have assumed nasal congestion is caused by excess mucus, like I did!)  While your body is busy fighting the virus that caused your nasal congestion, decongestants focus on treating the swollen tissue or inflammation to help combat nasal congestion, helping you feel better.  Now go forth and share this information the next time your co-worker is blowing their nose, muttering it’s because they have a plethora of mucus 😉 .

I don’t want to have a cold or sinus pressure at all,  when I get a cold I’d love to be able to take a week off, dozing on the couch, sipping tea, binge watching Jessica Jones and not be known as Patient Zero.  (ha ha ha! wouldn’t we all?!)  The reality is most of us don’t have the luxury of waiting out a cold.  We have families to tend to, jobs to show up at and responsibilities to complete, and a cold just gets in the way.

I have found, what works best for me personally, is Advil® Cold & Sinus.  I experience bad sinus pressure and the pseudoephedrine relieves that pressure and stops my stuffy nose in its tracks.  During cold season, I always make sure I have this on hand, because I know I’ll need it!  It works fast and it’s non-drowsy formula means I can do what needs to get done with a clear head and without worrying about needing a nap 1/2 way through.
