When you have a common cold or the flu, it’s not unusual to have symptoms such as a runny nose or stuffy nose. Allergies or cold temperatures can also cause these symptoms of runny nose or nasal congestion. Other cold or flu symptoms can include sneezing, coughing, sore throat, headaches, body aches, and fever. In most cases, over-the-counter medicines can relieve your cold and flu symptoms. However, because there is such a wide variety of OTC cold medicines available, choosing the right one can feel overwhelming.

Please continue reading to learn more about the best medicines to relieve nasal congestion, runny nose, and other flu and cold symptoms.

What is a runny nose? How is it different from nasal congestion? 

A runny nose (medical term: rhinorrhea) is the secretion of mucus or a thin, watery discharge out of the nose that can also drip down into the throat. It is most often caused by the cold virus, flu virus, cold temperatures, or allergies. Runny noses are signs that your immune system is working. However, the symptoms can be uncomfortable. Over-the-counter cold and flu medicines can provide relief. 

Nasal congestion refers to the swelling of nasal passages, which prevents smooth airflow, making it harder to breathe through the nose. It occurs due to inflamed blood vessels in the nasal membranes (medical term: rhinitis). Nasal congestion can make it harder to expel mucus out of the nose. This can result in clogging of the nasal passages with thick mucus, making you feel stuffed up. For this reason, it’s also called a stuffy nose. Over-the-counter nasal decongestants can help to relieve these common symptoms.

How do you get rid of a runny nose fast?

To treat a runny nose or stuffy nose, you should drink plenty of fluids, especially  water, and get plenty of rest. You can also get relief by using a saline nasal spray, decongestant nasal sprays, neti pot, or cool-mist humidifier. It’s generally good to avoid spicy foods as they can worsen symptoms like a runny nose and watery eyes.

In terms of medications, the best cold medicines are over-the-counter antihistamines that help relieve cold and flu symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes. 

Which antihistamine is best for a runny nose? 

There are several good options among antihistamines to dry up a runny nose, including diphenhydramine (Benadryl, Nytol), brompheniramine (Dimetapp Cold, Robitussin Cold & Allergy, Allergy Elixir), and doxylamine (Alka-Seltzer Plus Night-Time Cold Medicine, NyQuil). Second-generation antihistamines are typically non-sedating or non-drowsy, which are suitable for daytime use. Other antihistamines can cause drowsiness and help you sleep through the night.

What’s the best cold medicine for a stuffy nose?

Oral decongestants  relieve nasal congestion and make breathing easier by reducing the swelling of the blood vessels in the nose. Examples include pseudoephedrine (Sudafed, Contac Cold 12 Hour), available without a prescription. However, this medicine is sold from behind the pharmacy counter in limited quantities because it can be misused to make methamphetamine (meth) illegally.

Preservative-free saline nasal sprays such as Flo Saline Plus and Ayr contain salts dissolved in purified water. They work by dissolving thick mucus and moisturizing inflamed nasal passages.

Nasal decongestant sprays like Sinex and Afrin can be used for 1-3 days to reduce stuffiness in the nose. They contain oxymetazoline and work by decreasing blood flow and swelling in the nasal tissues. Using them for a long time can result in rebound congestion, making your symptoms worse. Always consult a doctor or pharmacist before using home remedies for longer than recommended or if your symptoms get worse.

What’s the best medicine for a cough?

Antihistamines block the chemical histamine that triggers symptoms such as runny nose, watery eyes, and postnasal drip (mucus and other secretions trickling down the throat). Postnasal drip can irritate the throat and cause coughing. Therefore, drying up these secretions with an antihistamine can help to relieve cough. Examples of antihistamines used for this purpose include Actifed Cold and Benadryl Allergy & Cold.

Expectorants like guaifenesin (Guai-Aid, Mucinex) thin out the mucus and make it easier to cough up and expel. 

Cough suppressants or antitussives relieve cough by blocking the cough reflex in the brain. Common cough suppressants like dextromethorphan are present in cough and cold medicines like CVS Health Tussin Cough Liquid Gels and Robitussin Cough Gels. Combination products like Delsym Adult DM Cough + Chest Congestion Relief Liquid and Vicks Dayquil Cough also contain a cough suppressant.

What’s the best medicine for sore throat, fever, aches, and pains?

Lozenges and numbing throat sprays contain active ingredients such as benzocaine (Cepacol, Vicks Vapocool), and phenol (Chloraseptic). They provide pain relief from a sore throat by acting like local anesthetics (numbing agents). 

Acetaminophen (brand name Tylenol) is a commonly used fever reducer and pain reliever. This medicine is safe for use by most people. It is present in combination  products like Vicks Dayquil Cold & Flu Relief  and Tylenol Cold + Flu Severe . An overdose of acetaminophen can be harmful to the liver, so it’s important to take no more than the recommended daily maximum dose (3,000 mg every 24 hours in adults).

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), and naproxen (Aleve), can be used to reduce fever, inflammation, and other symptoms such as headache, sinus pain, and muscle pain. Other cold and flu medicines like Excedrin contain acetaminophen, aspirin (an NSAID), and caffeine, which work together effectively to relieve pain. 

Wrapping Up

The best treatment for cold and flu or allergies depends on your symptoms. Most often, rest and drinking lots of water are essential. In addition, taking the right medication will help you recover more comfortably.  For example, the best cold medicine for a runny nose should contain an antihistamine that can dry up secretions. 

If you do not get symptom relief within a few days of using over-the-counter medicines, be sure to obtain advice, diagnosis, or treatment from a healthcare provider. Family physicians may choose to give you prescription medications or antibiotics for infectious diseases caused by bacteria, such as Strep throat. 

It is especially important for certain people, such as young children or pregnant women, to be medically reviewed by healthcare professionals before using over-the-counter cold and flu products.

CP top 5 rating

Runny nose, although not considered a serious condition, is extremely unpleasant. Nasal congestion, persistent discharge of watery or thick mucus, crusting in the nose, and decreased sense of smell 1 are extremely uncomfortable. The runny nose itself is not a disease, but only a symptom of various pathologies: colds, allergies, inflammatory processes in the paranasal sinuses 2 .

Sometimes nasal congestion and runny nose can be signs of special conditions, such as pregnancy, hormonal imbalances or vascular disorders. Therefore, choosing drugs to effectively eliminate symptoms is not easy.

It is generally accepted that cold medicines are available only in the form of nasal sprays or drops. However, these drugs, although popular, have a predominantly symptomatic effect (that is, temporarily suppress mucus production and reduce congestion) 3 . Therefore, today they produce other forms – tablets for the common cold for adults. In childhood, these drugs are also used, but somewhat less frequently and strictly according to the doctor’s prescription.

Tablets fight not only with the common cold, but also with other manifestations of the disease. These drugs are especially useful for prolonged rhinitis of infectious or allergic origin 1 .

List of top 5 tablets for the common cold according to KP

Considering the fact that tablets for the common cold have a more active effect on the body than drops and sprays, you need to select medicines together with a doctor who will determine the required dosage and duration of treatment.

How to choose adult cold tablets

Choosing the best cold tablets for adults depends on the expected effects of the drugs. All medicines are aimed at suppressing nasal congestion and eliminating nasal discharge, which can be triggered by infections, allergies, or vascular reactions.

In viral infections, the runny nose is caused by the influence of pathogens on the mucous membrane, the development of acute inflammation with edema and mucus secretion. In this case, preparations with an antiviral, immunostimulating and anti-edematous component 6 are needed. This is necessary to suppress the infection and eliminate symptoms.

In allergies, a runny nose causes inflammation when the allergen comes into contact with mucous membranes. In this case, tablets are required that suppress the release of histamine and the development of vascular reactions. They help eliminate swelling and copious discharge from the nose, reduce sneezing and itching in the nose.

For a runny nose that is complicated by a bacterial infection (eg acute and chronic sinusitis), antibacterial components are needed 6 . In this case, the doctor may recommend antibiotic treatment in combination with cold tablets.

Popular questions and answers

How to properly treat a runny nose and other popular questions are answered by physician of the highest category Mikhail Lystsov.

Why can I have a runny nose?

– Runny nose (medical name – rhinorrhea) – a protective reaction of the body to irritation of the nasal mucosa. There can be many reasons: from exposure to cold, dust, chemicals, various allergens, to reactions to pathogens and viruses. The most common cause is a cold or flu and allergens.

Runny nose can also occur with vasomotor rhinitis, with polyps, the presence of a foreign body in the nasal cavity. Therefore, it is important to establish the cause of the common cold before the use of certain drugs. The effectiveness and duration of treatment depends on this.

What to do if you have a runny nose?

– As a rule, in most cases, a runny nose goes away on its own. It is enough to eliminate the irritating factor, periodically rinse the nasal cavity with saline. Perhaps short-term use of vasoconstrictors or antiallergic drugs for seasonal allergies.

If a runny nose does not go away for more than a week, discharge from the nose becomes yellow-greenish in color, an unpleasant odor, blood impurities appear, fever and general malaise appear, you should consult a doctor. Also, the reason for contacting the doctor is the lack of effect from the drugs you are used to, for example, with seasonal allergies.

When should I call an ambulance?

– The reason for calling an ambulance with a runny nose is the appearance of critical conditions against its background: a sharp and significant increase in body temperature, severely shortness of breath, the appearance of nosebleeds, conditions after trauma to the nose and head, severe malaise, fever and other signs of general intoxication of the body. In these cases, do not self-medicate, consult a doctor.

Can I treat myself?

– With mild forms of a runny nose (especially if this is your usual reaction of the body), you can cope with it yourself. It is enough to eliminate the irritating factor, take plenty of fluids, rinse the nasal cavity with saline and humidify the air in the room. In this case, folk remedies and the usual drugs for you will help well.

How long does a runny nose last?

– Mild forms of the common cold, as a rule, disappear without a trace within a maximum of a week and do not require special treatment. With a “normal” state of immunity, you can get rid of it in 3-4 days. If a runny nose bothers you for more than 10 days and is not treatable, this is a reason to see a doctor.

How to narrow the vessels in the nose without pills and drops?

– If there are no vasoconstrictors at hand, or you are against drugs, you can get rid of a mild form of a runny nose with simple manipulations: washing the nasal cavity with 2% warm saline solution, warming the legs in warm water, applying mustard plasters on the feet at night, inhaling essential oils (menthol, eucalyptus). It will help to instill aloe or Kalanchoe juice into the nose and massage the bridge of the nose, nose and frontal sinuses. However, these remedies are good only for a mild form of the common cold and the absence of complications.
