Nurofen Cold & Flu Tablets 24s can help to relieve you of the symptoms related to colds and the flu.
This dual-action tablet contains Ibuprofen and Phenylephrine hydrochloride, which effectively alleviates a range of symptoms such as aches and pains, sore throat, headache, nasal congestion (blocked nose), and fever.
Ibuprofen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), helps relieve aches and pains, reduces swelling, and can lower fever. Phenylephrine hydrochloride acts as a nasal decongestant, reducing swelling in the nasal passages and relieving congestion, thereby alleviating the pressure that may cause a headache.
With Nurofen Cold & Flu Tablets, you can find relief from discomfort and get back to your daily activities feeling refreshed and revitalized.
