Introduction

Cetifar Cold Tablet is used to treat common cold symptoms. It relieves allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itching, watery eyes, or runny nose. It blocks the release of certain chemical messengers that are responsible for pain and fever.

In case you miss a dose of this medicine, take it as soon as you remember. Smoking may worsen the effect, therefore use of tobacco should be avoided.

How Cetifar Cold Tablet works

Cetifar Cold Tablet is a combination of three medicines: Cetirizine, Paracetamol/Acetaminophen and Phenylephrine, which relieves common cold symptoms. Cetirizine is an antiallergic which blocks histamine (a chemical messenger) to relieve allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Paracetamol/Acetaminophen 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.
