What Is The Effect If Paracetamol Mixed With Procold?
good afternoon, I want to ask what is the effect if someone takes paracetamol along with procold? Will there be any side effects? if there is, what is u0026gt; That is all and thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Paracetamol, or acetaminophen, is a drug that can function as an analgesic (pain reliever) and antipyretic (fever reliever). This drug works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, which are chemical compounds in the body that play a role in transmitting pain to the brain and also regulating body temperature. Paracetamol belongs to the class of over-the-counter drugs that are relatively safe to use.
Procold has an active composition of paracetamol, pseudoephedrine HCl, and also chlorpheniramine maleate. Pseudoephedrine HCl is a decongestant drug that is useful for relieving nasal congestion. Meanwhile, chlorpheniramine maleate is an antihistamine drug whose function is to relieve allergies, itching, and sneezing. All of the ingredients in this medicine can help relieve flu symptoms, namely fever, headache, nasal congestion, sneezing, and so on. Pseusoephedrine HCl and chlorpheniramine maleate are not included in the over-the-counter drugs, so their use should be done under a doctor's supervision.
In fact, when viewed from the ingredients alone, there is no potential for dangerous interactions between the two drugs. However, as you can see from our explanation above, the two drugs that you mentioned contain paracetamol. Although rare, excessive paracetamol consumption in some people can cause stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, and various other complaints. At very high doses of paracetamol, liver function problems can even occur which causes the sufferer to experience confusion and loss of consciousness. Pseudoephedrine HCl in some sensitive people can also cause anxiety, dizziness, headache, insomnia, decreased appetite, skin rashes, hives, tremors, hallucinations, and so on. Meanwhile, chlorpheniramine maleate can cause dizziness, blurred vision, dry mouth and throat, nausea, abdominal pain, constipation, frequent pregnancy, memory problems, difficulty concentrating, and various other complaints.
Therefore, be wise in taking medicine. OTC drugs such as paracetamol are generally relatively safe for you to consume the right dose without having to see a doctor. However, other drugs that are not considered over-the-counter drugs should only be consumed if it is recommended directly by your doctor.
I hope this helps.
