…can’t you buy decongestant without paracetamol in it?
I don’t have flu. I don’t have a headache or sore limbs. I’ve just got the common bloody cold and I want to take something to stop my nose from running long enough to get a day’s work done (and possibly a decent night’s sleep) without resorting to sticking a bottle of the stuff up my nose every ten minutes. But instead I have to stop after four doses because of the paracetamol inside.
I can understand the thinking behind (although I don’t agree) always mixing paracetamol with codeine except on prescription, because you can get high on codeine (and very nice it is too) and they’d rather kill you than let you get high, but it’s just decongestant for god’s sake. What’s the problem?
