With more than 40 million Americans expected to travel this holiday season, facing the increased chance of catching a cough, cold or flu while on the road, Robitussin® has introduced Maximum Strength Cough + Chest Congestion DM, its new liquid-filled capsules that control cough on-the-go. This formulation not only harnesses the power of Maximum Strength Robitussin® cough liquid, but is a convenient option for those hitting the road or boarding a plane this holiday season. Travelers should take steps to avoid the consequences of cough – or “COUGHequences” – this holiday season by avoiding contact with cold and flu sufferers, frequently washing their hands, and treating cough, cold and flu symptoms when they appear. Each year in the U.S., there are more than one billion cases of the common cold and on average, five to 20 percent of the population get the flu. Cough is one of the most common symptoms of cold and flu, affecting up to 50 percent of sufferers. Robitussin® has a variety of products tailored to effectively treat different symptom combinations for the entire family, including new Maximum Strength Cough + Chest Congestion DM liquid-filled capsules and new Maximum Strength Nighttime Cough DM. Plus, whether traveling cross country or staying close to home, families can track when cough activity spikes in their local area via the Robitussin® COUGHCAST™ tool. This tool, available on Robitussin.com, can let people know when cough is most likely to strike, so they can be prepared to effectively treat their symptoms – and avoid the “COUGHequences” of missed vacations, holiday parties and workdays.
