Here is my theory. When we are young - babies, toddlers, pre-teens- our bodies learn. Our bodies learn how to react to drugs, and then they never forget. My body took penicillin once as a child, learned how to react to penicillin (projectile vomit!) and since then it has never forgotten.
So, my theory says that the most effective drugs for us are the ones we took in our youth. I tested this out with the gunk head cold. In my youth a cold meant Coricidin. I took the Coricidin for the first time in years and those tiny red pills worked better on my cold than any of the Extra Strength new fangled formulas I've bought as an adult.
As a child I always got a dose of Nyquil for a cough, but of course that was the Nyquil of my youth, before there was DayQuil, that could have been named AlcoQuil, because it was a shot of liquor. That, along with the Bourbon honey and lemon croup cure, taught my body forever that hooch fixes a cough. If I'm coughing, give me a shot and my immune system knows where to go and what to do.
Sadly, the alcohol in Nyquil is down to 10% now. Not only that, the only Sudafed I can find is the Sudafed PE. PE must mean Placebo Effect. I need the stuff my body learned on, full meth Sudafed.
If my theory holds that what you got as a child works best as an adult, then I should turn to full sugar Seven-up for any nausea and Midol for all reproductive complaints. I take that back. Midol never worked.
Perhaps the reason I have this Vitamin D deficiency is because I haven't had Chocks for decades.
Two Buck Chocks.
