Lemsip Cold & Flu Lemon contains a combination of ingredients which are
affective in relieving the symptoms associated with heavy colds and flu,
including relief of aches and pains, headache, sore throat, nasal congestion or
a runny nose, pain and congestion of sinusitis and lowering of temperature.
Paracetamol is a well known pain killer (analgesic). It is effective against
aches and pains, including a headache, and can also reduce a fever
(antipyretic). Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride (nasal decongestant) reduces
swelling in the passages of the nose, relieving nasal congestion and reducing
the pressure which may cause a headache.
