Goodsense review

As Flu season is almost here, it is important to take precaution and have the med kit at home filled with medicines that can help you fight the common flu and give you peace of mind. Amongst our catalogue at Discount Medical Supplies, we carry over-the-counter medicines and options that can help you fight the flu for both you and your loved ones, however there is one option that stands out from the rest and, given that I can speak from recent experience, we will review the GoodSense Nighttime Relief Powder for you.

What is it?

The GoodSense Nighttime Relief Powder is a Flu symptoms remedy that is a Pain reliever/ fever reducer, cough suppressant and antihistaminic. It helps to temporarily relievethe common cold and flu symptoms. Said symptoms can be: cough due to throat irritation, minor aches and pains, fever, runny nose and sneezing. It is to be dissolved in hot water and taken before bedtime. It has a Honey Lemon taste infused with Chamomile and White Tea Flavors. It is made with Acetaminophen (Headache remedy and fever relief) as the active ingredient, but it also includes dextromethorphan (cough suppressant). One of the main features is that it includes Diphenhydramine (antihistamine) this ingredient causes drowsiness and it helps you breath better but also makes you fall asleep faster.

What customers like about this product

The very top reason why people buy this product is its presentation. Instead of taking pills for flu symptoms, it is much simpler and pleasant to drink a hot beverage. The other reason most people drink it is because, measuring up with the competition it actually tastes better. It does make you sleepy and help you get a good night sleep without the flu symptoms being a nuisance. For this review, I include myself in the “customers” category, as myself and my significant-other where both under the weather this past couple of weeks. I was able to breathe easier and it did help with my coughing, although I tend to have a hard time sleeping, so it did not knock me out immediately. A couple of days later, my girlfriend tried it when she was sick with the flu and it pretty much put her to sleep in a matter of less than 45 minutes. She woke up feeling much better and well rested. She experienced a night with no coughing and without having a runny nose.

What customers don’t like about this product

The main issue that customers who take this medicine have is with diphenhydramine, since it is a prominent ingredient for the GoodSense Nighttime Relief Powder, is that for a minority of people, it has the reverse effect on them. Instead of making the sleep, it keeps them wide-awake. Since this ingredient is only a small part of the medicine, for people with this condition, the diphenhydramine will simply not put them to sleep, but it will help them clear their airways.


Myself, as a person who spent dealing with flu symptoms and later caring for a person with the flu, I greatly recommend you buy the GoodSense Nighttime Relief Powder, it really came as a relief. However, if you in the past have had flu medicine and felt your heart race and was unable to sleep, you might want to ask your doctor for al alternative for you.
