How Cyptic Tablet works

Cyptic 60mg/2.5mg/500mg/5mg Tablet is a combination of three medicines: Ambroxol, Levocetirizine, Paracetamol and Phenylephrine, which relieves common cold symptoms. Ambroxol is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Levocetirizine is an antiallergic which relieves 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.
