How paracetamol + phenylephrine + chlorpheniramine + guaifenesin + ambroxol works
This is a combination of five medicines: Paracetamol, phenylephrine, chlorpheniramine, guaifenesin and ambroxol relieve aches and fever associated with cold. 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. Phenylephrine is a decongestant which narrows the small blood vessels providing relief from congestion or stuffiness in the nose. Chlorpheniramine is an antiallergic which relieves allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which decreases the stickiness of mucus (phlegm), further helping in its removal from the airways. Ambroxol is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out.
