Activate the Strategy: Let's Begin
Start your Cold FAid® strategy at the first sign of a cold. Begin within 24-48 hours of the onset.
WHAT to take
Notifications for the four medications are ready to go. All are recommended, unless you have medical contraindications (see medication Drug Facts labels). You control notifications:
To deactivate , select a medication & toggle left.
For example: After Day 3, if a specific symptom has cleared, discontinue use. Deactivate notifications of the medication-treating-that-symptom by selecting the medication-to-be-deactivated. Then, toggle left.
To activate, select a medication & toggle right. All four medications are activated on the initial My Notifications screen.
WHEN to take
Timing is based on 16 waking hours per day & 8 (uninterrupted) sleep hours per day. We recommended you take naps when possible to get a cumulative total of 8-10 hours of rest a day when recovering. Sleep is sanctioned with our strategy, & you will not receive any notifications during your 8-hour rest.
HOW to take
Directions include whether to take with food/drink & any restrictions. Read the 'Drug Facts' labels on each medication for a complete listing of side effects.
Tap "Take Medication" once you have consumed the medication.
MISSED DOSE NOTE: do not take a medication if 30 minutes has passed since your notification. Wait for your next medication notification.
If you are traveling to another time zone, do not rely on the app notifications. Instead, use the strategy (on the insert or website) to know WHEN & HOW to take medication.
My Symptoms and Warning Signs
Two questions greet you each day:
Question #1: What symptoms are you experiencing today?
Select & log answers from a listing of symptoms.
Question #2: Are you experiencing these concerning symptoms?
Early detection of warning signs helps you know when to seek medical care.
The option to share your file of symptoms & medications is available to you. Copy & then attach your file. If you seek medical care, this may be very helpful to your medical provider. You may send the data to yourself for your medical records or send to a family member.
