    We have four children and were tired of running to the doctor because the kids colds always seemed to turn into sinus infections. We heard about Sambucol and initially bought the syrup. Kids did not like the taste! We came across these tablets that you let dissolve on your tongue and what a dream come true. No bad taste, works like it promises. You do have to start them as soon you feel a cold coming on, they seem more effective that way. If you take them as directed, once every 3 hours, you will be rid of your cold in a day or two and they do not make you drowsy which is great for the kids. My husband has high blood pressure and these are great with that as well because he can still take his BP medicine and not worry about side effects with the Sambucol. We have bought a few boxes of this product just in the past few weeks with all of the nasty stuff going around and it is a blessing. I would say the only con is that there are only 30 in the box so, if a few members in a household are ill and taking this, it goes quickly.

    Manufacturer recomends taking this product at the beginning of a cold. By the time I ordered and received this product, my cold was already full blown. I didn't notice any good results. It may or may not have speeded the recovery from a cold, I can't tell. Tiny little pill that has a good flavor for disolving on your tongue. I'll know more if I ever develop cold symptons and be able to take this product earlier.

        Comments about Sambucol Cold & Flu Relief Tablets, 30 ea:

        After having a sneezing spell and feeling like a cold was maybe coming on as opposed to just my sinuses acting up, I started taking the Sambucol as directed on the packaging. I guess basically the main thing I can say is that it really seemed to work. I began feeling better shortly after taking the first tablet, and probably took 3 or maybe 4 more tablets at the directed 3-hour interval - AND NEVER did come down with a cold, not even another sneezing spell! The fast dissolving tablet tastes good, but you do have to take more frequently than most over-the-counter cold/flu/sinus meds, which usually direct one or two tablets every 6 to 12 hours.

          Comments about Sambucol Cold & Flu Relief Tablets, 30 ea:

          I keep Sambucol handy for when I get the first sign of a cold coming on, and as long as I remember to take it every three hours when I have a cold it cuts the symptoms down considerably. I recommend it for all who hate taking traditional OTC cold medicines, and those who can't take the citrus homeopathic remedies.

          My entire family uses this product. It is easy to use and it works! I have kicked out colds in 3 days or at most 4 by taking a tablet about once every 3 hours. Easy to take when you are out and about and don't have access to water. Amazing product! I will always have this on hand, especially during cold season

              Dissolves fast and easily on or under tongue. Good tasting, kids don't mind taking. If you follow the instructions to take at the first sign of a cold or flu every 15mins for the first 2 hours and then every 3 hours it really works. I am always looking for effective homeopathic medicine and found it in this one for colds and flu. Works faster and more effective than some of the much more expensive homeopathic brands. Like most homeopathic medicine you need should have it in your medicine cabinet so when you get that itch in the throat or the first sneeze or the first ache in the body you can take at first signs.

                    This product really works. I was traveling for work and started coming down with a terrible cold. I had a sore throat for two days before buying this right when I got off the plane. Within two doses, it actually relieved almost all my symptoms. I felt much better, and continued with a few more doses the next day until all my congestion and sinus pain was completely relieved. The taste is pleasant, almost like a grape flavor. This is much better than the typical zinc products I normally take.

                        You need to start taking this the first sign of a cold or flu.
                        If you already have a cold or flu when you start taking it, it might feel like it's not working but your body needs more time to knock out the virus, so keep taking it. By the second day your body kicks in and you are feeling better. Keep taking it and your symptoms will quickly ease up.
                        When we take this at the first sign it fantastic.

                        I love this product and have used it for myself and 3 kids for over a year now with great success - see my other review regarding how well this product works. Just wanted to note that I strongly believe that it is the elderberry in this that helps with cold symptoms (I take elderberry capsules but my kids can't swallow those so I use Sambucol). I recently found a different product from Now Foods that is elderberry & zinc as well as vitamin C and ecchinacea - same kind of dissolving tablet - comes in a bottle of 90 for around $7. Going to try those.
