I heard that Flu Mist can help shorten the length of time a person has flu symptoms, or lessens the severity of symptoms (does not cure/prevent flu). Is this true?
Is there something similar to help with cold symptoms, right when you start to feel like you may be getting sick? I know there are tons of cold remedy medicines at the pharmacy, and most of the ingredients make me feel worse than the cold itself, and they do nothing to help the cold go away quicker.
I heard about taking echinecea or zinc or something, but do you have to take a lot? I agree with one of your experts who said, "if it's strong enough to help, it's also strong enough to cause harm", so i don't want to take something if it will have bad side effects or drug interactions.
