How Sneezy Cold & Flu Tablet works

Sneezy Cold & Flu Tablet is a combination of five medicines: Caffeine, Cetirizine, Nimesulide, Paracetamol and Phenylephrine, which relieves aches and fever associated with cold. Caffeine is a stimulant which decreases sleepiness caused by Cetirizine. Cetirizine is an antiallergic which relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Nimesulide is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). Paracetamol is an analgesic (pain reliever) and an antipyretic (fever reducer) which also blocks the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that cause pain and fever. Phenylephrine is a decongestant which narrows the small blood vessels providing relief from congestion or stuffiness in the nose.
