Encet D Plus Tablet is a combination of three medicines: Cetirizine, Paracetamol / Acetaminophen and Phenylephrine which relieve 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.
Taking Cetirizine+Paracetamol / Acetaminophen+Phenylephrine with alcohol can cause liver damage.
