Advil Cold and Sinus (ibuprofen / pseudoephedrine) for Sinus Symptoms: "Second year on this. I get one super sinus infection a year. I get some relief in a couple hours, total relief in about 3 to 4 days. I take one every five hours. Get runny nose for a couple, but that tells me it is working-breaking up the congestion. I don't stop taking until totally gone. Did once, came back, Only thing I have found that gives good permanent relief. No side effects for me."

Advil Cold and Sinus Liqui-Gels (ibuprofen / pseudoephedrine) for Sinus Symptoms: "Spring allergies are HORRIBLE this year; they came earlier and are very bad eg. congestion, dry cough, itchy ears and throat and swollen glands; oh yes and the itchy watery burning eyes. I am miserable to say the least !!! Runny nose, and sneeze !!! OMG I thought I was going to lose my head I was sneezing so hard. I started taking Advil Cold and Sinus Liquid Gel tabs and voila !!! The next day it started to clear up-granted I was blowing my nose a lot but that was just because the congestion was clearing up !!! My ears , eyes, and sneezing got a lot better and the post nasal drip was better too. I swear by this stuff and always try to keep some on hand in case of a sudden in the middle of the night cold starting...This stuff is GREAT !!! :)"

Advil Cold and Sinus (ibuprofen / pseudoephedrine) for Sinus Symptoms: "Waste of money. Helped my headache but its not like I needed to pay 10$ for 20 bloody Ibuprofens... had plenty at home already. I usually take a single cold pill and I'm good for half a day with barely ever having to blow my nose, and can sleep a full night without a problem. With this stuff however, I took 6 today and I kept blowing my nose ever 1-2 mins regardless. Wasted my money and now I can't get any sleep at all because of the constant cough and runny nose."

Advil Cold and Sinus (ibuprofen / pseudoephedrine) for Sinus Symptoms: "I use Advil cold and sinus very sparingly for when I get the worst combination of debilitating sinus headache and earache. It is the only thing that takes away the pain that makes me want to sleep all day long for days on end. It improves my quality of life from bottom of the barrel to functioning with only minor discomfort. I try to only take the bare minimum dose, just to take the edge off. If that is ineffective after several hours, I may layer it with another one. If that is still ineffective, then several hours later I will take two together. Never have tea or coffee when you take these because it is a "speedy" medication and not "sleepy". It is great if you have to function, such is going to work versus calling off."

Advil Cold and Sinus (ibuprofen / pseudoephedrine) for Sinus Symptoms: "I have only recently started having spring allergies. Some congestion but the biggest issue for me is the sinus head. I have had the same headache now for over a week. Im also prone to migraine and two days the sinus headache advanced into a full blown migraine which nothing would touch. I have tried several otc remedies and of course have migraine medications. This stuff, Advil Cold and sinus, stopped the sinus headache in its tracks and with no real side effects. It took about 30 minutes. I want to echo everybody else here. Advil Cold and Sinus is absolutely amazing!!!"

Advil Cold and Sinus Liqui-Gels (ibuprofen / pseudoephedrine) for Sinus Symptoms: "Best medicine to open your ears and sinuses when they are really congested. I have tried everything. The name brand is great but the store brands or generic brands can cause rapid heart rate even though they say that they are supposed to be the same they are not."

Advil Cold and Sinus (ibuprofen / pseudoephedrine) for Sinus Symptoms: "I call this stuff my miracle medicine. I prefer the liquid gel capsules because the effect seems to take place faster than the caplets, but honestly they're both great! I get the WORST sinus headaches that can last days!! I'm talking pain on one side of my head/face that gets worse with any kind of movement and brings me to tears. Regular ibuprofen will not give me any relief what so ever. My ex bf years ago who is also a doctor mentioned trying this and I'm so glad he did! I kept thinking what I had was a migraine and no wonder why nothing would work. I wasn't treating my condition properly. One pill of this takes ALL THE PAIN AWAY!! Seriously. You have nothing to lose trying this if you suffer like I was. So worth it guys!!"

Advil Cold and Sinus (ibuprofen / pseudoephedrine) for Sinus Symptoms: "This the best medicine for cold and flu symptoms that I have ever tried. It also works during allergy season. I couldn't live without it when I am sick. It doesn't give you that balloon head feeling that most medicines do. It's the best medicine ever created for colds!"

Advil Cold and Sinus (ibuprofen / pseudoephedrine) for Sinus Symptoms: "I use this as the only medicine for my sinus and colds, its the only one that works for me. But now the dosage has changed, used to be 1 every 12 hrs and it worked great. The new dosage 1 every 4 hrs doesn't help at all, so I have to take 2 at a time which works better but not like the 12 hr dosage pills. I would have rated it 10 if it was a year or so ago."
