Drugs.com doesnt sell any medications. It just provides information on dosing and side effects and that sort of thing. Your best resource for your question is your pharmacist. Liquid meds can come in different colors and flavors depending on the manufacturer so it will be difficult to find what you are seeking just by the color. There are a great variety of liquid cold and cough preparations and it usually depends on the symptoms. There are expectorants to liquify thick secretions, cough suppressors for dry hacking non productive coughs and some have decongestants for stuffy noses and some have antihistamines for allergy symptoms (itchy eyes, runny nose) and any combination of the above. Your best bet is to tell the doc what symptoms you are having and let him pick a preparation that meets those needs. If it hasnt been too long since you had that prescription (if you got it in the last couple years) the pharmacy should have a record of what was dispensed. They can also tell you prices. Colors are just that, color and flavoring, and wont affect how the drug works, of course.
