About RECOFAST PLUS 500MG TABLET

RECOFAST PLUS 500MG TABLET belongs to the class of medications called ‘cough and cold preparations’ used to treat the common cold and allergic symptoms such as the runny nose, sneezing, itchy or watery eyes, and blocked nose. The common cold is an infection of the nose and throat caused by viruses. Allergies are immune system reactions to foreign bodies or allergens such as certain foods, chemicals, pet dander, or pollen.

RECOFAST PLUS 500MG TABLET is a combination of three medicines: Paracetamol, Triprolidine, and Phenylephrine. Paracetamol is an analgesic (relieves pain) and antipyretic (reduces fever). It works by inhibiting prostaglandin's production (chemical messengers) that are responsible for pain and fever. Triprolidine 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 is a decongestant that works by contracting and narrowing the blood vessels of nasal passage and airways.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Common cold: The common cold is an infection caused by the virus, mainly known as ‘rhinoviruses’, affecting the nose and throat (upper respiratory tract). Children younger than 6 years 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 pollutants, dust, etc. The symptoms of the common cold include sneezing, sore throat, cough, congestion, mild body pains, low fever, mild headache, feeling unwell, stuffy, or runny nose. In some cases, the discharge from the nose may become thicker and yellow or green, which is not an indication of bacterial infection.

Allergies: It occurs when foreign elements that cause allergy-causing agents (allergens) attack and invades our body, thereby causing the release of histamines. This chemical messenger 'histamines' causes swelling, inflammation, redness, itchiness, itchy/watery nose and throat, and watery eyes. Allergies generally occur due to chemicals, air pollution, pet danders, dust, pollen hairs, seasonal allergies like hay fever, etc.
