How Esdecon Plus Tablet works

Esdecon Plus Tablet is a combination of four medicines: Caffeine, Paracetamol, Phenylephrine and Chlorpheniramine Maleate. Paracetamol is an analgesic (pain reliever) and antipyretic (fever reducer). It blocks the release of certain chemicals in the brain that cause pain and fever. Caffeine increases the effectiveness of Paracetamol and makes you more alert. Phenylephrine is a decongestant which narrows the small blood vessels providing temporary relief from congestion or stuffiness in the nose. Chlorpheniramine Maleate is an antiallergic which blocks the action of a chemical messenger, histamine to relieve allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing.
