How Captol CZ Drop works

Captol CZ Drop is a combination of three medicines: Cetirizine, Paracetamol and Phenylephrine which relieve common cold symptoms such as sneezing, stuffy nose, body ache and fever. Cetirizine is an antiallergic which blocks histamine (a chemical messenger) to relieve allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Paracetamol is an analgesic (pain reliever) and antipyretic (fever reducer). It blocks the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that are responsible for pain and fever. Phenylephrine is a decongestant which narrows the small blood vessels providing relief from congestion or stuffiness in the nose.
