AII.reel Cold is a combination of 3 active ingredients, cetiriaine as an!ihistamine.seudoe.Qhedrine decongestant & paracetamol as analgesic & antipyretic. Cetirizine Hydrochloride, antihistamine. is a piperazine derivative & mctabolitc of hydroxyzine. It is a non-sedating, selective antagonist of the peripheral
histamine (Ht) receptor, with free anticholinergic & antiserotonergic effects.
It is reported to be long-acting & with some mast-cell stabilising activity. It inhibits the histamine-mediated ‘early’ phase of ~he allergic reaction & also reduces the migration of inflammatory cells & the release of mediators associated with the ‘Iatc’ allergic response.
Pseudoephedrine.xlecongestant, is a sympathomimetic. with direct & indirect effects on adrenergic receptors. It has alpha (a) & beta adrenergic activity & has
pronounced stimulating effects on the central nervous system. Due to its a-adrenergic effects, intense vasoconstriction to mucous membranes occurs causing decongestion.Constriction in the mucous membranes results in their shrinkage; this promotes drainage, thus improving ventilation & nasal sruffiness. It has longer duration of action,less local irritation & not associated with rebound congestion.
Paracetamol has analgesic, antipyretic properties & weak anti-inflammatory activity.
