Vicks DayQuil NyQuil Severe Cold & Flu Relieves Symtoms When Traveling Review #ReliefisHere


This is a sponsored post

We're at the height of cold and flu season now. Yet, it's the last thing most people think about when packing for a vacation involving extreme warm or cold temperatures this time of year. Unless you have pre-existing conditions that require continuous medication, more likely than not you probably aren't thinking about what you'll do if you come down with a bad cold or the flu while on that dream trip that you have been planning for months.

Fiji Sunset,
The reality is that, as I know from personal experience from my family's January vacation to the Southern Hemisphere, being prepared with DayQuil Severe and NyQuil Severe in your suitcase can really save the day (and night) when you are hit with an unexpected cold or a seasonal allergy outburst that has symptoms that are intent on robbing you of any lesiurely pleasure, making you feel just plain miserable.
DayQuil Severe and NyQuil Severe come in caplets to carry on the plane as well as liquid bottles that you can easily pack in your checked luggage if you make sure to double or triple seal it in ziploc plastic bags to prevent leakage. I'm so glad I bought both at Walmart and carried the brand's caplets onboard my flights and checked the liquid bottles in my suitcase because one week into our trip to Fiji and New Zealand I came down with the worst cold I've had in years.

Me chilling on the beach in Fiji,
From that first night during our trip when I woke up with a hacking cough, I took NyQuil to sleep soundly at night and DayQuil during the day to feel energetic and alert to take in all the views and activities. Thanks to both of these products it was possible to enjoy every moment of our trip from cycling, kayaking and hiking up glaciers to visting museums like Honey Centre and cruising on scenic Milford Sound, New Zealand's most photographed location. Even on the trip home, still sick as a dog, during our tropic island stopover I was able to thoroughly enjoy Fiji and to swim in the warm South Pacific.

Vicks NyQuil Severe Cold & Flu and Vicky DayQuil helped me fight the worst cold and flu symptoms around the clock including nasal congestion, sinus congestion and pressure, cough due to minor throat and bronchial irritation, aches and pains, sore throat, headache, fever and sore throat. It's hard to believe I was still functional and enjoying everything despite suffering from all those ailments at once. 

True to the boxes' descriptions, both the night and day products aided in reducing the swelling of nasal passages, temporarily restoring breathing to my nose. In addition the night formula worked like a charm to suppress nightime coughing fits, so I could sleep well each night, while the day version's maximum strength nondrowsy action helped my cough and cold progress.

It's important to point out that DayQuil and NyQuil are not just for traveling. Again I learned first hand that having a family-size supply of these over-the-counter medications on hand in the medicine cabinet at home is also a good idea. That's because not only did my cold linger for several weeks more after we returned from two weeks abroad, but hubbie and some of my kids also caught what I had and needed relief from those nasty cold symptoms.
