People also ask, what is the best most effective cold medicine?

To treat coughs, Oostman said his best advice is to look for cough medicines with dextromethorphan (one brand is Robitussin) or guaifenesin (such as Mucinex). Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant, which can help you rest, and guaifenesin helps break up the mucus.

What is the best cold medicine on the market?

You have two main choices in the cold-and-flu aisle:
