Vilcold Tablet is a combination of three medicines: Levocetirizine, Phenylephrine and Paracetamol which relieve common cold symptoms such as sneezing, stuffy nose, body ache and fever. Levocetirizine is an antiallergic which blocks histamine (a chemical messenger) to relieve 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 antipyretic (fever reducer). It blocks the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that are responsible for pain and fever.
Taking Levocetirizine+Phenylephrine+Paracetamol with alcohol can cause liver damage.
