WHAT ARE LEMSIP MAX ALL IN ONE COLD & FLU CAPSULES?
Lemsip Max All in One Cold & Flu capsules contain 3 active ingredients – paracetamol, phenylephrine and guaifenesin which helps relieve symptoms associated with cold and flu such as aches and pains, sore throat, headache, nasal congestion, fever and chesty cough.
Paracetamol works as a painkiller to ease aches and pains and headaches and also reduces body temperature.
Phenylephrine works as a decongestant and reduces swelling in the nasal passages which provides relief from nasal congestion and sinus pressure.
Guaifenesin is a cough expectorant which loosens the phlegm thus making it easier to cough up if you have a chesty cough.
