The only difference between Tylenol Cold and Tylenol Flu is the box! Marketing genius or absolute madness?
There's a lot of difference between getting a cold and getting the flu. Colds typically leave you sneezing and sniffling for a couple of a days, while the flu is much more serious. The flu can typically give you a fever and leave you fatigued, and if left untreated, can sometimes lead to hospitalization.
Despite the major difference between these diseases, Tylenol treats them the same way!
Both Tylenol Cold and Tylenol Flu contain the exact same ingredients—a pain reliever, a cough suppressant, and a nasal decongestant. The only difference between the two medicines is the box!
No matter what kind of sickness you have, remember to drink plenty of fluids and get lots of rest!
