Thanks for the suggestion of using the liqui-gels. I can't take the liquid Ny-Quil due to the HFCS (It gives me a sore throat, even if I didn't have one before.) So far I have been staying healthy by taking Sambucol - immune system syrup (which is gluten free). I don't know if I will continue to be so fortunate as we have a lot of strep going around at school right now, but for now it is working well.

Well, I researched and read that NyQuil liquid is GF. So, in my cold induced stupor after 3 sleepless nights, I downed a shot and slept like a baby. I didn't feel well the next day (intestinally) but chalked that in the flu column.

NyQuil again for another night of sleep... and the next day... Oh my, the next day.

Vicks swears that there is no gluten in their products. My body is saying otherwise, loudly!

More poking around on the net led me to a few blogs where people recommend taking the liqui-gels instead of the regular liquid stuff. Some say they also had problems with the original type that I took, others just suggest going that route because it contains less HFCS. (93 Calories in that 2T shot!) Others claim it is the alcohol in the product that makes you go haywire. I love wine and spirits. Alcohol does not do this to me, so I can't see this as the case.

Anyone else have any problems with this product? Anyone have safe suggestions for cold/flu remedies?
