Cold / Flu

If colds hit you harder in Japan than they did in your home country and you don’t have time to go to the doctor, you’re going to need some over-the-counter meds.

You can get a wide variety of cold/flu medicines in Japan, from simple sniffle-stoppers to heavy-duty multi-symptom meds.

Select a category from the left or scroll through to see the whole list of the most popular cold/flu medicines in Japan.

If you take an MAOI, warfarin, blood pressure medication, or any other regular medication for a mental or physical disease or condition, are pregnant, nursing, or simply not sure, consult your doctor before taking any over-the-counter medication.

Japanese OTC labels often do not provide medication-specific warnings, so if you're unsure of drug interactions, be safe and ask your doctor before taking anything.
