How Primecet Plus Tablet works

Primecet Plus Tablet is a combination of three medicines: Paracetamol/Acetaminophen, Pseudoephedrine and Levocetirizine, which relieves common cold symptoms. 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. Pseudoephedrine is a decongestant which narrows the small blood vessels providing relief from congestion or stuffiness in the nose. Levocetirizine is an antiallergic which blocks histamine (a chemical messenger) to relieve allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing.
