  • When I'm suffering from a cold or flu or allergy symptoms, I like to be able to take something in the morning that wont make me woozy or dizzy or sleepy, and then take something at night that helps me sleep through the symptoms as comfortably as possible
  • That's why I thought it was ingenious that Alka Seltzer released their day AND night pills
  • There are ten of each in the box, and it's a little more expensive than other medications at $7 something a box, and for only 20 pills, it just doesn't seem like a lot, but it was still convenient to have both, and it still cost less than buying two different bottles of syrups or two different boxes of pills
  • They don't taste awful, but they do taste chalky, and I was hoping to avoid that and was SO thankful to see that this Alka Seltzer alternative was in a pill form
  • I might reserve it for use against a more mild cold, and not when I've got some serious cough going on, because I think it's better suited to a general cold, and not the flu

      When I’m suffering from a cold or flu or allergy symptoms, I like to be able to take something in the morning that wont make me woozy or dizzy or sleepy, and then take something at night that helps me sleep through the symptoms as comfortably as possible. And I really don’t like the idea of having to buy both a day time and night time version of the same medication or, worse, two totally different medications entirely. That’s why I thought it was ingenious that Alka Seltzer released their day AND night pills. There are ten of each in the box, and it’s a little more expensive than other medications at $7 something a box, and for only 20 pills, it just doesn’t seem like a lot, but it was still convenient to have both, and it still

      cost less than buying two different bottles of syrups or two different boxes of pills.

      I’ve tried Alka Seltzer cold tablets in the past, the kind you have to dissolve in water. They don’t taste awful, but they do taste chalky, and I was hoping to avoid that and was SO thankful to see that this Alka Seltzer alternative was in a pill form. And they are gel capsules, so they go down really easy and dissolve even easier, and you’re supposed to feel the effects of this quicker in comparison to other pills.

      Both the day and night pills are supposed to treat your basic body aches and pains, fever, chills, congestion, runny nose, sneezing and sore throat. One makes you sleepy and the other doesn’t. Sounds like a nyquil commercial, doesn’t it? But, I’ve had decent results ...


      • from the dissolvable Alka Seltzer tablets in the past, so thought I couldn’t go wrong with the day/night combination they were offering in pill form now.

        I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised, more by the night time pill than the day time. Though both worked, they didn’t work very well on all the symptoms its supposed to treat and they weren’t long lasting, but that’s pretty typical a reaction for me to have to over-the-counter medication. So, I can’t say that I necessarily hold that against the pills or the company. I’m a hard-to-cure type, and so I feel sorry for medicines that make claims that I know will likely not be the case for myself. However, I noticed that the body aches and pains associated with a cold were diminished, and that the sneezing was minimized,

        but the coughing and sore throat were still pretty constant, and I was still congested enough to be a little uncomfortable. But, I liked the night time pill because at least it made you relax enough to ignore the symptoms of the cold long enough to fall asleep. I didn’t stay asleep, but I slept longer than I normally would have and definitely fell asleep easier, and I didn’t have that drugged feeling that sometimes accompanies these drugs. So, I liked it, and will be willing to try it again in the future. I might reserve it for use against a more mild cold, and not when I’ve got some serious cough going on, because I think it’s better suited to a general cold, and not the flu. But, it worked okay, better than most OTC drugs available. Another plus for Alka Seltzer.
