Paracetamol is a painkiller that will reduce headaches and other aches and pains, as well as relieving a fever if you have one. Phenylephrine is a decongestant that will unblock the nose and sinuses, helping you to breathe easier. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which reduces the mucus that blocks the throat and chest, helping you to breathe and also helping to treat a mucus cough.
What’s the difference between a cold and the flu?
Both a cold and the flu are caused by a virus. There are more types of cold virus, of which there are many, and the flu, which there are significantly fewer of. A cold is generally milder than flu but the symptoms are similar. A cold will also appear more gradually instead of the flu which comes within a few hours. Cold symptoms generally only affect your nose and throat and you can do things you normally would without being infected. Whereas with the flu you will feel tired and feel too ill to do anything.
