Expert Advice

Cabinet Daytime Severe Cold & Flu is the ideal pain reliever/fever reducer to anyone who is looking for a flu relief liquid to put an end to chest congestion, minor aches, sore throat pains, and frequent sneezing. Rediscover what it means to sleep in one piece with a multi-symptom non-prescription nasal decongestant designed for pain relief and sinus congestion. Because these liquicaps are non-drowsy, you can take them at any time of the day without feeling sleepy. While the solution is safe, you shouldn’t use it in conjunction with other products without first seeking medical advice. For example, you should avoid using it with additional products that are rich in acetaminophen as the body cannot process more than 4000mg at once. The product has a recommended dosage of up to 4 times per day, although the exact number will depend on the age of the person requesting the item. Failure to adhere to this may result in a liver warning, a sign that you can end up developing liver disease. Please note that this product should not be consumed with alcohol. Check with your doctor for more information related to this product description and OTC colds.
