      My biggest complaint about buy cold or flu medicine is that you cannot pick and choose your symptoms, and therefore take exactly the medicine you need to treat only the symptoms you are suffering from. For instance, all of my colds are sinus related with a fever, and my flu symptoms rarely have cold symptoms. I hate being completely zonked out by medications that treat symptoms that I don’t have, and not effectively relieve the symptoms that I do have. On my last cold, I went to my local drugstore pharmacy,

      and was surprised to find a new line of medications from Vicks that is called Vicks Custom Care. There were three different liquid medicine options, each with different symptoms-for me, just what the doctor ordered. The three varieties are: Chest Congestion/Cough, Dry Cough, and Nasal Congestion/Cough. Each bottle was the same price as all the other liquid medicines, at $10, so price was not an issue. I was getting a sinus infection as well as coughing, but not a wet cough in my lungs or chest, so after reading the packaging
      of my choices, I purchased the Nasal Congestion/Cough, because it was also for sinus issues.

      I usually take Advil Cold and Sinus tablets when I have sinus issues, because Sinutab and Sudafed both have ingredients that make my heart race, which can be very scary. I hoped that this liquid wouldn’t do that to me, but would clear up the pain and congestion in my sinuses, as well as getting rid of that dreaded sinus headache. I like the dosage cup that comes with it as well, so I don’t have to ...

      guess at how much to take. It tasted okay as well, like berries, so it was not horrific to take and get down. The directions instruct to take it every four hours, which implies that it is not just a night-time medicine, so I took it in the morning, hoping there would be no drowsiness.

      After taking it for the duration of my cold and sinus infection, which was 4 days, here are my observations:

      -I could have used a stronger, night-time medication, as I did not have great sleeps; -My headache

      went away, and the sinus pain was relieved, about 80%, which is better than most medications that I have tried; -The nasal and sinus congestion was almost completely relieved; -It did not make me drowsy during the day

      Vicks Custom Care works as well as any cold or sinus medicine that I have tried. I would love to see a night-time and a day-time formula, but other than that, I have no complaints. I would definitely try the other varieties, and the concept of having a customized medicine for specific symptoms is unique and a great idea.
