Anyone know any tricks about getting rid of a cold quickly. The whole rest thing is outta the question since Im getting close to the end of the semester and finals are coming up. I really need to have this gone by Sat.

When I get sick I take large amounts of vitamin C, 4,000mg in the morning and 4,000mg at night. I'm a big guy so it works out for me but don't take so much that it upsets your stomach.

Vitamin C has always helped me, also some Zinc and Echinacea. Those Cold Ease drops can't hurt either.

Thanks embalmer. I wish Id learned what it was that my grandpa made, some kind of drink, lots of booze in it from what I can remember. Worked great for everyone who took it. But the mix died with him lol.

Drink lots and lots of water, take quite a bit of Vitamin C during the day. 2 shots Whiskey, 2 Shots Rhum, 2 Shots Brandy, before bed.

Heat and a fever. The fever is how your body kills the the flu. Don't take any drugs, drink lots of water and easily digestible food. Take a long hot shower, and stay very warm, I'm talking sweating.

vitamin c dude, I take at least 4000mg of that per day. Get the chewable orange flavored ones at target and you won't be sick all winter.
