About Cheston Cold Tablet 10'S

Cheston Cold Tablet 10'S belongs to a category of  'cough and cold medications' primarily used to treat the common cold and allergic symptoms like sneezing, watery eyes or itchy/watery nose and throat. The common cold is a respiratory illness affecting the nose and throat, mostly caused by viruses known as 'rhinovirus'. The virus attacks the body through the mouth, nose, or eyes and spreads quickly through droplets in the air when a sick person sneezes, coughs or talks.

Cheston Cold Tablet 10'S contains Cetirizine (antihistamine/antiallergic), Phenylephrine (decongestant) and Paracetamol (mild analgesic and antipyretic). Cetirizine belongs to the class of antihistamines (antiallergic drugs) that works by blocking the action of histamine, a substance responsible for causing allergic reactions. It helps relieve allergy symptoms such as sneezing, running nose, watery eyes, itching, swelling, congestion, or stiffness. Phenylephrine helps shrink the blood vessels in the nasal passage, reducing a stuffy nose. Paracetamol is an analgesic (relieves pain) and antipyretic (reduces fever) that works by inhibiting the production of certain chemical messengers in the brain known as 'prostaglandins' responsible for pain and fever.

Cheston Cold Tablet 10'S should be taken as prescribed by the doctor. Your doctor will recommend how often you take Cheston Cold Tablet 10'S based on your medical condition. Some people may experience drowsiness, nausea, fatigue, dryness in the mouth, headache, and vomiting. Everyone doesn't need to experience the above side effects. Most of these side effects of Cheston Cold Tablet 10'S do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

Inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning for pregnancy or breastfeeding before starting Cheston Cold Tablet 10'S. If you have high blood pressure (hypertension),  liver or kidney disease, or coronary artery disease (heart disease), avoid using Cheston Cold Tablet 10'S as it may worsen your condition. Consumption of alcohol should be avoided as it may lead to excessive drowsiness and sleepiness. Do not take Cheston Cold Tablet 10'S if you have taken an MAO inhibitor (anti-depressant medication like Isocarboxazid, Phenelzine, Selegiline and Tranylcypromine) in the last 14 days. Intake of more than 4 gm of paracetamol can damage your liver, so it is better to avoid the use of Cheston Cold Tablet 10'S in severe liver damage. Cetirizine present in the Cheston Cold Tablet 10'S can make you sleepy, so do not drive or operate heavy machinery after taking Cheston Cold Tablet 10'S. Phenylephrine in Cheston Cold Tablet 10'S should be used with caution in patients with occlusive vascular disease (nerve/artery blockage), including Raynaud's phenomenon (decreased blood flow to the fingers).

Patients Concern

Disease/Condition Glossary

Common cold: The common cold is an infection caused by a virus known as 'rhinovirus' affecting your nose and throat (upper respiratory tract). Children younger than six years of age are at the most significant risk of colds, but healthy adults can also be affected to have 2-3 colds annually. In most cases, cold symptoms are recovered within a week or ten days. However, symptoms might last longer in people who smoke or are exposed to allergens like dust, pollutants, etc. Common cold symptoms might include stuffy or runny nose, sore throat, cough, congestion, mild body pain or a mild headache, sneezing, low-grade fever, and feeling unwell (malaise). In some cases, the discharge from your nose may become thicker and yellow or green, which does not indicate a bacterial infection. If you observe these symptoms, immediately contact your doctor.

Allergies: This is a condition that occurs when allergy-causing agents known as 'allergens' attacks our body, thereby causing symptoms like redness, stuffy nose, watery eyes, excess mucus formation, airways irritation, itchy and watery nasal passage/throat. During the allergic condition, our body secretes a lot of chemical messengers called 'histamines', which in turn cause all these allergic symptoms. Allergies can be caused due to various chemicals, air pollutants, dust, pollen grains of plants, pet danders, hairs and multiple medicines.
