Quick Overview

Covonia cold & flu formula 160ml

Covonia cold & flu formula is specially formulated to provide relieve from aches, pains and fever associated with colds and flu. It is used to relieve mild to moderate pain including headache, migraine, nerve pain (neuralgia), sore throat, backache and rheumatic pain.

This syrup contains four ingredients namely paracetamol, phenylephrine. Paracetamol belongs to the category of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It works by blocking the action of a substance in the body called cyclo-oxygenase.  It is responsible for the production of several chemicals in the body, some of which are known as prostaglandins. It reduces the production of prostaglandins and can therefore relieve pain and inflammation.

Phenylephrine is a type of medicine called a decongestant. It works on the alpha receptors found in the walls of blood vessels in the linings of the nasal passages and sinuses. It causes these blood vessels to contract and narrow, thereby decreasing blood flow into the linings of the nose and sinuses.

Guaifenesin is a cough expectorant that is used to treat a productive or chesty cough, in which phlegm is coughed up. It works by stimulating receptors in the stomach, causing a reflex increase in the volume of fluid produced in the airways. This decreases the thickness of the secretions in the airways, thus loosening phlegm and making it easier to cough up.

It also contains cetylpyridinium chloride which is a mild antiseptic. It is active against a wide range of micro-organisms that might infect sore or broken skin in the mouth and throat.
