For Cold Symptoms: “When I was in the Army in 1968 they prescribed this medication to reduce the runny nose, itchy watering eyes, etc. associated with being outside in the weather. It reduced to eliminated the problems. I wish I could find a source again.”

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!”

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.”

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