How Ficold P Syrup works

Ficold P Syrup is a combination of four medicines: Chlorpheniramine Maleate, Phenylephrine, Paracetamol/Acetaminophen and Sodium Citrate, which relieves common cold symptoms. Chlorpheniramine is an antiallergic which relieves 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 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. Sodium citrate is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out.
