I’m someone who gets miserably sick at least twice each winter. I suppose it’s a combination of having a so-so immune system as well as working with lots of kids. My body really has no chance. I’m also someone with a track record of reacting badly to medications. Some medications lower my blood pressure to the point I pass out. Others make me feel worse – in various tortured ways – than my original symptoms presented as.
Also, as someone interested in zero waste, the amount of packaging (necessary, but frustrating) is something to take into consideration.
