Mechanism Of Action Decongestants, such as pseudoephedrine, constrict the blood vessels of the mucosal lining of the nose and sinus and significantly decrease secretions. Paracetamol is a clinically proven analgesic/antipyretic. Dextromethorphan is a levorphanol derivative used for the temporary relief of cough. It lessens the severity and frequency of the cough, but does not inhibit the cough reflex.
INDICATIONS Dextromethorphan is an antitussive (cough suppressant) that is often combined with a decongestant, such as Pseudoephedrine, to temporarily relieve sinus congestion, runny nose, cough, sneezing, itching of the nose and throat, and watery eyes caused by cold or flu (influenza). Acetaminophen is an analgesic that is added to this drug combination to relieve the headache, pain, and fever that sometimes accompanies these illnesses
