Common cold is a viral infection of the nose or throat that can cause symptoms like a blocked or runny nose, sore throat, headaches, muscle aches, coughs, sneezing, fever, pressure in your ears and face and loss of taste or smell.

COLDACT CAPSULE is not recommended for use if you have asthma or lower respiratory disorders, severely high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, overactive thyroid gland, gastrointestinal or genitourinary obstruction and bladder or prostate problems.

USES OF COLDACT CAPSULE

HOW COLDACT CAPSULE WORKS

COLDACT CAPSULE relieves cold symptoms where phenylephrine decreases nasal congestion by acting on α1-adrenergic receptors in the small vessels of the nasal mucosa to produce constriction, resulting in decreased swelling and increased drainage of the sinus cavities and chlorpheniramine binds to the histamine H1 receptor and blocks its action, resulting in temporary relief of the negative symptoms (runny nose, sneezing, watery and itchy eyes) brought on by histamine.
