“Took this in the 1960s for allergies, while it relived congestion and sneezing, it was a powerful medication that caused great drowsiness.”

For Cold Symptoms: “I was prescribed this for sinus and cold symptoms back in the late 60's and 70's when I was in the Marines. It worked GREAT. I'm a true believer. I still have sinus problems but get no results nowadays.”

For Cold Symptoms: “I used Ornade exclusively 30 years ago. Nothing compared to the allergens it blocked - I have hay fever and related allergies. I lived in the Sacramento area where the pollen is extremely thick. I have been unable to find the Ornade Spansules since then, and was told by my Doctor that the decongestant in it (and all other like products) has a tendency to increase blood pressure. I highly recommend this product and wish I could take it again.”

For Cold Symptoms: “Had severe allergies as a child and was prescribed this. It was the greatest thing out there! That was 50 years ago but no one seems to carry it anymore. As a youngster I took half a capsule at a time. Wish it was still available!”
