About Zukamin Cold Suspension 60ml

Zukamin Cold Suspension 60ml belongs to the class of medication called 'cough and cold medications' primarily used to treat symptoms of the common cold and allergies like sneezing, runny/stuffy nose, fever, headache, body pains, congestion, or watery eyes. The common cold is a respiratory illness affecting the nose and throat. It is mostly caused by viruses known as 'rhinovirus'. The virus enters the body through nose, mouth or eyes and spreads easily through droplets in the air when the person who is sick sneezes, coughs or talks.

Zukamin Cold Suspension 60ml is a combination of three drugs, namely: Paracetamol (mild analgesic and antipyretic), Phenylephrine (decongestant) and Chlorpheniramine (antihistamine/antiallergic). 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 that are responsible for pain and fever. Phenylephrine belongs to the class of decongestants that works by shrinking the blood vessels in the nasal passage. Thereby, provides relief from congestion and decreases the excess mucus production. 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.  It helps to provide relief from symptoms of allergy such as sneezing, running nose, watery eyes, itching, swelling, and nasal congestion.
