About Flucol Syrup 60 ml

Flucol Syrup 60 ml belongs to a class of medication called 'cough and cold medications' primarily used to treat the common cold 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 person who is sick sneezes, coughs, or talks.

Flucol Syrup 60 ml is a combination of four different medicines, Chlorpheniramine (anti-histamine), Phenylephrine (decongestant), Paracetamol (mild analgesic and antipyretic), and Sodium Citrate (mucolytic). Chlorpheniramine belongs to the class of antihistamines (anti-allergic drugs) that works by blocking the action of histamine, a substance responsible for causing allergic reactions. Phenylephrine helps in shrinking the blood vessels in the nasal passage, thereby reducing 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. Sodium citrate is a mucolytic agent; it helps to loosen mucus, making it easier to cough out.

Take Flucol Syrup 60 ml as prescribed. Your doctor will recommend how often you take Flucol Syrup 60 ml based on your medical condition. Some people may experience drowsiness, sleepiness, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, and headache. Everyone doesn't need to experience the above side effects. In some cases, Flucol Syrup 60 ml may cause a severe allergic skin reaction, probably due to paracetamol, which may disappear in some time.

Inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning for pregnancy, or breastfeeding before starting Flucol Syrup 60 ml. If you have high blood pressure (hypertension),  liver or kidney disease, coronary artery disease (heart disease), avoid using Flucol Syrup 60 ml as it may worsen your existing condition and symptom. Consumption of alcohol should be avoided as it may lead to excessive drowsiness and sleepiness. Do not take Flucol Syrup 60 ml if you have taken any MAO inhibitor (anti-depressant medication like Isocarboxazid, Phenelzine, Selegiline, and Tranylcypromine) in the last 14 days. Phenylephrine present in Flucol Syrup 60 ml should be used with caution in patients with occlusive vascular disease (nerve/artery blockage), including Raynaud's phenomenon (decreased blood flow to the fingers). Increase in the intake of fluids to keep throat hydrated.
