Dear Alka-Seltzer Plus Cough & Cold,


Normally I don’t like the idea of ingesting anything that looks like a chemistry experiment, but last night I was at my wit’s end with this cold that I couldn’t seem to shake. My nose was so stuffed up that I couldn’t breathe and my head felt like someone was banging on drums inside. So my fabulous boyfriend suggested taking a glassful of your product to see if it helped me sleep through the night. Let me tell you, after already losing sleep the night before because of this cold, I was ready to try anything.

He put the tablets into water and as I watched them fizz, I’ll admit, I was a little wary. But then within an hour of drinking it, the percussion section in my head had taken a break and one of my nostrils was slowly clearing, so breathing was a tad bit easier.

Then I slept through the whole night! And I woke up being able to breathe through my nose! Happy day!

Right now, I might not be a hundred percent, but I’m getting there. My head doesn’t hurt and I can breathe ten times better than I could yesterday.

Thank you, Alka-Seltzer Plus. You made it so I don’t have to feel like I was hit by a bus today. I appreciate it.



About cdhoose

I'm a mom to an amazing little girl and have another little one on the way. I live in Upstate New York with my fiance and daughter, 2 big, crazy dogs and a 3-legged cat (who has an attitude). I hate know-it-alls, Lindsay Lohan and socks with holes in them. I always seem to get myself into trouble (which entertains my fiance to no end), but I try hard to be a good parent. Also, I occasionally work on scrapbooking the fifty billion pictures I've taken of my kid. And I like ice cream. The end.

  1. Thanks for that advice! I used to use Alka Seltzer Plus years ago but I had totally forgotten about it. We’ve had colds going around our house for about a month – and I think I’m going to go get some of this for relief!!!
