SymptomPak

Marketed by:
Essential Home OTCs, LLC (Tulsa, OK)

Indications:
SymptomPak is like a first aid kit for a cold. In a small, easy-to-store box, it contains 5 of the individual ingredients pharmacists agree are most often needed for colds, cough, fever, and flu. The individual ingredients come in separate bottles, rather than in one multisymptom pill or liquid. This means a patient with a cold can treat only the symptoms he or she has, instead of taking medication for all cold symptoms. SymptomPak is available online and in major retail stores for a suggested retail price of $24.99. Refills are also available.
