Be Prepared Before Sickness Strikes this Winter

Stock up on Robitussin

Along with the cooler temperatures comes plenty of coughing and sore throats. As much as we wash our hands and try to prevent getting sick, it is bound to hit our homes, office, and schools sooner or later.

I try to always be prepared because you never know when it is going to strike. Nobody wants to be awake all night with a nagging cough or run out to the store for medication in a snow storm. It just makes sense to stock up on a few essentials.  I always keep Children’s and Adult Robitussin on hand for winter sickness.

Be sure you are treating your cough with the right kind of medication as you never have “just a cough” there is always a reason whether it is from the common cold, allergies, flu, or something more serious.


Check out the Robitussin Cough & Cold Center  to find out what kind of cough you are experiencing and the coordinating medication you should seek or whether you should call your doctor. I’ve found that the store’s pharmacist is always helpful for questions as well.

Let’s face it, kids can’t do well in school if their nose is constantly runny and they are coughing non-stop.  Until the cold runs its course, at least  Children’s Robitussin Cough & Cold can help battle the discomforts of the symptoms so our kids can get back to being kids and not sick.

I really like the Children’s Cough & Cold for my kids because it provides 8 hours of cough and runny nose relief for my children. With other medications, I would give my kids their dose of medicine and send them to know knowing that the medicine would wear off by lunch time. :( With Children’s Robitussin Cough & Cold, I know they won’t be miserable with a cough, runny nose, itchy and watery eyes, and sneezing.

You can purchase Children’s Cough & Cold at Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Giant Eagle, and more for about $5.82-$7.99 for 4 oz bottle. Be sure to read carton for dosing information.

Likewise, my husband and I can’t work all day if we have a miserable cold so I keep Adult Robitussin Maximum Strength on hand. Their day time and nighttime formulas suppresses coughs and tackles sore throat pain in one product. The Robitussin Maximum Strength Severe Cough + Sore Throat helps reduce the severity of your cough and sore throat for ages 12+.

This product also contains Acetaminophen to help as a pain reliever and fever reducer so you can start feeling more human again fast.The cooling liquid is formulated to give you powerful relief from sore throats immediately.

You can purchase Robitussin Maximum Strength Severe Cough at Walmart and CVS for about $8.99-12.99 for 8 oz bottle. Be sure to read carton for dosing information.

My 12 year old son tends to get sore throats often, so we use this product to give him relief so he can power through whatever his day takes him from school to swim practice to ninja warrior training!

You know that colds are the worse at night when they keep you up all night. It is the one time you actually need extra sleep and can’t get it because of a nagging cough, sore throat or runny nose. I highly recommend Robitussin Maximum Strength Multi-Symptom Cough Cold + Flu Nighttime.

This product delivers nightime relief from cough, sore throat, body aches, fever, nasal congestion, and runny nose. This combination medication means you don’t have to fumble with multiple medications which is no fun when you are sick. This medication includes acetaminophen, an antihistamine, cough suppressant, and nasal decongestant.

You can purchase Robitussin Maximum Strength Multi-Symptom Cough Cold + Flu Nighttime at Walmart and Giant Eagle for $8.99-$12.99 for 8 oz bottle or $5.989-$8.99 for 4 oz bottle.

As with all medication, please read the carton for warnings and dosing information. For medication with a pain reliever, do not take additional pain reliever unless directed by your doctor. If your cough last more than 7 days, it may be time to see your doctor.
