Pharmaceutical Aid

How it works

Menthol primarily activates the cold-sensitive TRPM8 receptors in the skin. Menthol, after topical application, causes a feeling of coolness due to stimulation of 'cold' receptors by inhibiting Ca++ currents of neuronal membranes. It may also yield analgesic properties via kappa-opioid receptor agonism.

Common side effects

Vomiting, Nausea, Nystagmus (involuntary eye movement), Abdominal pain, Coma, Apnea (absence of breathing), Altered heart rate, Vertigo, Balance disorder (loss of balance), Contact dermatitis, Drowsiness


Diphenhydramine is used to relieve cough caused by minor throat or airway irritation. It is also used to relieve red, irritated, itchy, watery eyes; sneezing; and runny nose caused by hay fever, allergies, or the common cold; to prevent and treat motion sickness, certain symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and to treat insomnia (difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep).

How it works

Diphenhydramine belongs to the group of medicines called sedating antihistamines. It acts by blocking the action of hitamine, a chemical released in the body during an allergy.

Common side effects

Nausea, Nervousness, Palpitations, Abnormal sensation in skin, Blurred vision, Confusion, Convulsion, Difficulty in paying attention, Dizziness, Drowsiness, Dry mouth, Shortness of breath, Difficulty in urination, Eye swelling, Lip swelling, Fatigue, Headache, Hypersensitivity reaction, Inability to empty the urinary bladder, Increased energy, Muscle twitching, Restlessness, Ringing in ear, Sedation, Tachycardia, Thickened respiratory tract secretions, Unsteadiness, Vomiting
Ammonium Chloride(NA)


Ammonium chloride is used for the relief of cough in the form of cough expectorant. It is also used as an injection to treat patients with hypochloremia and metabolic alkalosis. 

How it works

Ammonium chloride is an expectorant, which helps in bringing mucus out of the lungs and thereby relieves the cough. Ammonium chloride is used to maintain the acid-base balance in the body and thus is used to treat patients with hypochloremia and metabolic alkalosis. 

Common side effects

Facial swelling, Allergic reaction, Difficulty in swallowing, Sickness, Nausea, Stomach pain, Shortness of breath, Throat disorder
