The front of the box says that these tablets are clinically proven to relieve symptoms of coughing, headache, sore throat, muscular aches, nasal congestion, pain and fever. I happened to read the ingredients after taking them a couple of times and realised their only made up of herbs, not even paracetamol in it. I feel ripped off. Terrible way to promote a product.
Purchased in June 2020.
Didn't changed my condition. I previously used Cough, Cold & flu that had Garlic and zinc which worked perfectly but didn't realised this one was different in formula and didn't work.
Purchased in November 2019 for A$9.99.
False advertising! Does not work whatsoever!
Has not worked whatsoever! If anything, it has made me worse! Please take this off the market as it is false advertisement, don't want to give Coles a bad word as I like shopping at Coles
Shortens the duration of colds
I have found that these Coles Cold & Flu Night and Day Capsules didn't have much impact on the symptoms of my cold at all.
So you will still need your usual over the counter medications to relieve sore throats, headache, fever and the dreaded nasal congestion and catarrah(runny nose).
However the last few times I have had a Cold these help me to recover and get back to normal after 1 week of usage.
My friend whom I caught my cold from was still suffering from his Cold until 2 weeks had elapsed.
These capsules contain high quality herbal ...ingredients to help your immune system fight the Cold virus more effectively and recuperate much faster. For approximatey AU$9.50 for 6 Days supply they are well worth the cost considering how much faster they will help you recover.
It worked for me
Got a cold that lasted 3 weeks, used codral and all it seemed to do was make me nauseous. Two weeks later I got another cold, thought I'd try coles cold & flu. Symptoms were much less, duration 1 week, and I slept well each night.
Purchased in August 2019 for A$10.00.
100% worked for me
I had the new- cough, cold and flu- day and night capsules. I was feeling better after day one. An amazing product and I have tried many other brands.
Thank you Coles.
100% will use these again, worked quicker than the dearer ones.
Have used many cold and flu brands and tried these Coles brand and worked quicker than most other brands. Very happy that they were under $10.00 and quantity of capsules.
Very very deceptive coles. Should NOT be in the medication section at all.
I bought these thinking they were the real day night cold & flu tablets not some herbal crap. Yes I should have read the packet but really when they are in that section and in bold letters says day & night cold & flu tablets I thought great they will work. Big waste of money. Should be moved to the herbal section. And no they do not work
Red and Blue opposite!
I've never taken a course of tablets where the day tablet is blue and the night tablet is red. This is ridiculous! If you lose the box you will end up taking the wrong ones!
Deceptive and Don't Work
I brought these for my daughter who was unwell, I could not understand why she was getting no relief from a cold and flu tablet and it's because they aren't proper cold and flu tablets. They don't even contain Panadol. It was 3 days before I realised and was not giving her any Panadol as I thought she was having it. It should not be stocked in the medicine section at Cole's. A terrible product.
Sits next to Codral and other big name cold and flu medication brands
If I took the time to read the properties within this product I would 100% not have bought and and paid the extra $6 for a proven product which helps with cold and flu symptoms. What you get with this product is some fancy gel capsules with vitamins and minerals which also come in other products at much more competitive prices.
Very deceiving! Watch out.
Seriously these have helped me so much!!
6 days ago i was struck down with influenza A! Me only being on the disability support pension i didn't have much $$ to buy "brand" cold & flu tablets so i got these ( thank god coles is open late). They have worked so well! Will buy coles brand again when needed
Yet another rubbish product. Misleading packaging and misleading shelf placement. It's Herbal. Come
This product is just a herbal remedy that should not be sitting on the shelf with ibuprofen and aspirin. It should be in the herbal section so it is clear to us consumers what we are buying. Their choice of packaging is clearly design to make it appear the same as other medication right down to the "Night and Day" descriptor. Come on COLES! You say you want to promote yourself as the ethical alternative yet you are still pulling the old bait and switch on the shelves?
If you are a believer in herbal remedies this product might be up your ally ...
