Coldover Syrup

Paracetamol 250 mg-Coldover Syrup

COMPOSITION:

Each 5 ml contains

  • Phenylephrine - 2.5 mg
  • Paracetamol - 125 mg
  • Cetirizine - 2.5 mg

DESCRIPTION:

COLDOVER syrup is the brand name for the nasal decongestant and antipyretic combination of phenylephrine, paracetamol and cetirizine. This combination effectively fights against common flu, allergies and breathing difficulties caused due to cold.

Phenylephrine, which is a powerful nasal decongestant, acts on the a1-adrenergic receptors that are present in the arterioles of the nasal mucosa. This drug causes vasoconstriction, which eventually decreases the edema and increases the drainage of the sinus cavities. Phenylephrine reduces the discomfort in the upper respiratory tract and eases the breathing.

Paracetamol is an antipyretic and analgesic agent, which is both safe and effective. Fever, which is highly common during cold, can be effectively suppressed with paracetamol administration. This drug is a non-aspirin pain reliever.

Cetirizine is a potent antihistamine. It is second generation histamine H1 antagonist with least sedating properties. This drug treats different allergic conditions such as hay fever, urticaria and upper respiratory tract hypersensitivity reaction.
