    WHAT ARE DAY NURSE CAPSULES?

    Day Nurse Capsules provide relief from daytime symptoms of colds, chills and influenza. These symptoms include tickly cough, shivers, aches, pains, blocked or runny nose, sore throats and headaches.

    Day Nurse capsules contain 500mg paracetamol, 30mg pseudoephedrine hydrochloride and 5mg pholcodine.

    Paracetamol works as a painkiller and also reduces body temperature when you have a fever. Pseudoephedrine hydrochloride works as a decongestant which opens up airways thus helping you to breathe more easily. Pholcodine works as a cough suppressant which helps relieve dry and tickly coughs.

    Please note: as this medication can contains pseudoephedrine, you will only be allowed to purchase one pack through our service within a certain period of time.
