Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best in Cold Medicine I can't even begin to tell you just how much this helped me. I have been sick since the last weekend in December. Had it not been for this product, I'd still be sick. It helped me to be able to go to my job and work. It helped me during the night. I am a firm believer in this product. I personally like the effervescent tablets because I felt as if they were quicker to make me better. Thank you for listening to me and having faith in this tablet. I did take the others at different times but the plain ones I liked best as far as taste. Thank you again!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PLUS Minus Nothing The "cold" warning signs started slowly and as soon as I realized what was coming, I took a dose of AS Plus Cold. Simply placing two tablets in 4 ounces of water, watching the sparkling bubbles as they danced to the top as the tablets dissolved, lifted my spirits and let me know I was going to stop this cold in its tracks. No drippy bottle of sugar flavored syrup to measure into a small plastic cup (that has to be thoroughly sanitized after each each person...for the duration of the contents). AS Plus Cold comes in 1 dose packets that can be tucked into a purse or wallet or travel bag, ready to be used when needed. Two doses later and I was feeling my regular self. Oh What A Relief It Is!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good ol Alka Seltzer! What a rough winter it’s been! I feel like we are weary from constantly trying to keep our immune systems fighting against the stubborn strains this year. This helps us fight that fatigue and head cold so we can preserve a little strength before it gets worse. I make sure we ate something beforehand though. We think it helps my spouse and myself. (This is not meant to be a medical advice, I am only sharing my personal opinion. It will wary from person to person. ) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These work wonders! I love These! They dissolve quickly and they work fairly quick. The only problem is the taste. I'm not too big on it. Maybe if they came in a fruity flavor it would be so much better. But as for their purpose, it works wonderfully. They go to work in just minutes. You can for sure tell a difference between these and other products on the market. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well I have had a lap band surgery in the past, so I am not able to swAllow pills larger than a tic tac, have you seen those Nyquil pills? This medication works very well. Dissolve and drink. Goes down easily and relieves the symptoms, quickly. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good! This product did better than what I actually thought it would. I have had a cold these past few days and have used it every night before bed and I have seen some improvements! My runny nose, sore throat, and coughing have subsidised some! The only thing I don't really like is the taste which is much to be desired! But besides that I would recommend this product! I received this product free for review!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing and Revitalizing! Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold is a perfect remedy for when you have that tired and achy feeling of being stuffed up and not knowing what else to do! The bubbles are refreshing and this product is something for the whole family! In fact, my significant other will not take anything else when he has a cold - this is definitely his go-to remedy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best cold medicine. The original Effervescent tablets were awesome. However the current product is adequate for releieving cold symtoms to get you through the day. I've noticed in the past month that it is extremely difficult to find the effervescent tablets. Most stores in my area only sell the capsules or drinkable type. Is there a reason for this? Please don't stop making them.
