i'll be travelling soon and got some airborne but i just realized that it has sucralose in it.

just wondering if any of you have taken it and had problems with it at all?
i never eat stuff with artificial sweeteners so i don't know if it will bother me.

i'm planning to try it out before we go but i just wanted to get your 2 cents first!

Hekela, I use Airborne and also Zicam before I get to the airport or on the plane; and even at work during cold & flu season. It works really well and I swear by it. I was only sick one time last year and almost everyone around me was sick much more often. Remember to bring some wipes or hand disinfectant too; best yet....wash, wash, wash those hands! :-) Hee hee. Enjoy your trip, and hope this helped.

Remicade - will have my 18th infusion on July 12.
Imuran - 100 mgs....taken before bedtime
Vitamin B-12/Biotin, Probiotics

I used it about a month ago a few times and had no problems with it. I was skeptical of it working, but it really seemed to stop my cold in its tracks (could have been a coincidence, who knows).

Aloha Heather!!!
I used to use Airborne, but I think it made me throw up last time, so I'm not into it anymore. I've heard lots of other people have success with it though!
