I am using Sudafed in combination with Ibuprom.
And for the rest an recipe from my grandmother: boil some milk, add two spoons of brown sugar and generous portion of cognac/brandy/whisky.... go to bed, put on some extra blankets..
Sweat the whole night and the next day you will see the difference..
I'm familiar with the old polish way... though my dad does a combo of whisky vodka and brandy (about 1/10th to 1/6th of a regular cup depending on how much he pours), mixed with a little lemon juice and filled by hot tea.
Don't use the old way and the new (pill popper) way at the same time though, most meds don't mix well with alcohol...
Also (as mentioned earlier) be careful mixing drugs. Many active ingredients have significantly different effects depending on dosage
