This medicine contains the following active ingredients:
Paracetamol is a well known pain killer (analgesic). It is effective against aches and pains, including headache. It can also reduce fever (antipyretic).
Phenylephrine hydrochloride reduces swelling in the passage of the nose (nasal decongestant) and so relieves a bloked or runny nose.
This medicine also contains Vitamin C. Your body's level of this vitamin may drop during infection by a cold or flu.
This medicine is for the relief of the symptoms of colds and flu. It is for adults and children aged 12 and over.
Both of these common illnesses are caused by a virus infection. Cold symptoms include a runny or blocked nose, sneezing and possibly a headache or sore throat. Flu symptoms include more severe headache, aches and pains and fever, usually needing a day or two in bed.
It is important to drink plenty of liquid when suffering from colds or flu.
