Eliminate the drama from being sick during the holidays with Advil Cold & Sinus.

#sponsor advil-cold-and-sinus

It is the most wonderful time of the year, but it is also cold and flu season. The holiday season is a busy time of year because of the increase in holiday get-togethers, shopping, and traveling. It is also a time when people get less sleep, have more stress and are exposed to more germs.  As you know, I am a complete germaphobe I do everything I can to avoid getting sick. However, it is inevitable I will end up with a cold during the holidays. I eliminate the drama from being sick during the holidays with Advil Cold & Sinus.

Advil Cold & Sinus is the #1 pharmacist recommended brand for Cough, Cold and Flu Combinations for Daytime. It combines Advil – the number-one selling pain reliever – and a powerful nasal decongestant for fast relief of your worst symptoms. The powerful combination relieves pain associated with sinus pressure and eliminates congestion by opening the airways. The active ingredients are 200mg Ibuprofen and 30mg Pseudoephedrine HCI.

Advil Cold & Sinus is for ages 12 and older. It temporarily relieves symptoms such as; a headache, fever, nasal congestion, sinus pressure and minor body aches associated with a common cold or flu. You can find it conveniently located at most pharmacy counters.

Advil is a brand that I know and trust and have used for several years. When cold and flu season strikes I make sure to prepare “just in case” I get sick. Like I said, I usually get sick this time of year from lack of sleep, extra stress and increased exposure to germs. I eliminate the drama of being sick by taking extra precautions and taking care of myself. I turn to Advil Cold & Sinus to relieve bothersome symptoms associated with a cold or flu.
