How CNF Tablet works

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