Keeping yourself and any adult living with you healthy and well has become a challenge under home quarantine. That is why it is important to have medicine stocked up and ready in the event you or your loved one/s suddenly fall sick. The problem is that it is sometimes difficult to determine whether that sickness is either the common cold, flu or a virus that has some symptoms of both.

The good news is that you do not have to despair, because there are medicines currently available online that can help you or any adult at home tackle symptoms of both the common cold and flu. Here are some of the best of them:

1. Tylenol Cold+Flu Severe
