How D CD Tablet works

D CD 500mg/25mg/5mg Tablet is a combination of three medicines: Paracetamol/Acetaminophen, Phenylpropanolamine and Cetirizine which relieve common cold symptoms. Paracetamol/Acetaminophen is a analgesic (pain reliever) and anti-pyretic (fever reducer) which works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that causes fever and pain. Phenylpropanolamine is a sympathomimetic agonist. It narrows blood vessels in the nose to relieve congestion. Cetirizine is an antiallergic which relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing.
