How CNF Syrup works

CNF Syrup is a combination of two medicines: Levocetirizine and Phenylephrine, which relieves sneezing and runny nose caused due to allergies. Levocetirizine is an antiallergic which blocks the action of a chemical messenger (histamine) responsible for runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Phenylephrine is a decongestant which narrows the small blood vessels providing temporary relief from congestion or stuffiness in the nose.
