Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in the sum of 4 of the most common cold and flu symptoms (runny nose, plugged nose, sneezing and head congestion), averaged over 3 days obtained from the Wisconsin Upper Respiratory Symptom Survey - 21 [ Time Frame: 3 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from baseline in the sum of 4 of the most common cold and flu symptoms (runny nose, plugged nose, sneezing and head congestion), averaged over 3 days obtained from the Wisconsin Upper Respiratory Symptom Survey - 21


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in the sum of all 10 symptoms, averaged over 3 days. [ Time Frame: 3 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The severity of cold/flu symptoms will be determined by the subject's response to the Wisconsin Upper Respiratory Symptom Survey, which includes questions related to the signs and symptoms of cold and flu, as well as Quality of Life Measures.

  • AM assessment of symptom relief reflective over the past 12 hours. [ Time Frame: 12 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The severity of cold/flu symptoms will be determined by the subject's response to the Wisconsin Upper Respiratory Symptom Survey, which includes questions related to the signs and symptoms of cold and flu, as well as Quality of Life Measures.

  • PM assessment of symptom relief reflective over the past 12 hours. [ Time Frame: 12 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The severity of cold/flu symptoms will be determined by the subject's response to the Wisconsin Upper Respiratory Symptom Survey, which includes questions related to the signs and symptoms of cold and flu, as well as Quality of Life Measures.

  • Symptom relief since taking the first dose. [ Time Frame: 60 min ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
