It is used to relieve the symptoms of allergic rhinitis (hay fever), common cold, other upper respiratory allergies, like headache, facial congestion and pressure, nasal congestion, runny nose, sneezing, minor aches and pains, itching of the nose, throat, or eyes, and watery eyes.

It can also be used as an adjunct with antibiotics in sinusitis (inflammation of cavities around your nose), tonsillitis (inflammation of tonsils), and otitis media (inflammation inside the middle ear).

FLUCOLD DROPS relieves upper respiratory symptoms where 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. Paracetamol relieves pain by elevation of the pain threshold and reduces fever by acting on the on the heat-regulating centre in your brain. Phenylephrine constricts blood vessels and reduces the blood flow to certain areas, thus decreasing swelling and allowing nasal and respiratory passages to open up.
