PARACETAMOL+CETIRIZINE+PHENYLEPHRINE+CAFFEINE

About

CAFFEINE+CETIRIZINE+PARACETAMOL+PHENYLEPHRINE is a cough and cold medication primarily used to treat common cold symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, congestion, stuffy nose, or watery eyes. It also helps treat nose or throat allergy symptoms due to upper respiratory tract allergies, sinus pain, and headache. The common cold is a respiratory illness affecting the nose and throat, mostly caused by viruses known as 'rhinovirus'. The virus enters the body through the nose, mouth, or eyes and spreads easily through droplets in the air when a person who is sick sneezes, coughs, or talks.

CAFFEINE+CETIRIZINE+PARACETAMOL+PHENYLEPHRINE is composed of four medicines, namely Cetirizine (antihistamine), Phenylephrine (decongestant), Paracetamol (analgesic and antipyretic), and Caffeine (a stimulant). Cetirizine 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 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. Caffeine acts as a common stimulant, which decreases sleepiness caused by Cetrizine and speeds up the action of all the medicines present in CAFFEINE+CETIRIZINE+PARACETAMOL+PHENYLEPHRINE.

Take CAFFEINE+CETIRIZINE+PARACETAMOL+PHENYLEPHRINE with or without food as your doctor prescribes and swallow whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew, or break it. Your doctor will recommend how often you take CAFFEINE+CETIRIZINE+PARACETAMOL+PHENYLEPHRINE based on your medical condition. Some people may experience vomiting, drowsiness, restlessness, insomnia (difficulty sleeping), and dry mouth. Most of these side effects of CAFFEINE+CETIRIZINE+PARACETAMOL+PHENYLEPHRINE do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

Do not stop taking CAFFEINE+CETIRIZINE+PARACETAMOL+PHENYLEPHRINE even if you feel better without asking your doctor, as your symptoms may come back and even worsen your condition. If you have high blood pressure,  kidney or liver disease, heart condition or cardiovascular disorders, overactive thyroid, enlarged prostate, high blood pressure, or Raynaud's disease (blood vessel disease), please do not take the CAFFEINE+CETIRIZINE+PARACETAMOL+PHENYLEPHRINE as it is known to interact. CAFFEINE+CETIRIZINE+PARACETAMOL+PHENYLEPHRINE may cause drowsiness and sleepiness, so it is advised not to drive a car or operate machinery. Consumption of alcohol should be avoided as it may lead to excessive drowsiness and sleepiness.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Common cold: The common cold is an infection caused by viruses, mainly '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 by having two 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.

    Allergy: Allergy is an immune system response to foreign elements typically not harmful to your body. These foreign elements are known as ‘allergens.’ Allergic condition varies from person to person. Some might be allergic to certain foods and seasonal allergies like hay fever. At the same time, others might be allergic to pollen or pet dander.
