Dimetapp PE Sinus Day + NIght Tablets provide 24 hour sinus and pain relief.
The day tablets contain phenylephrine and paracetamol.
Phenylephrine Hydrochloride is a decongestant that reduces the swelling (blocked nose) and secretions (runny nose) in the nasal passages and sinuses allowing the passages behind the nose and above the eyes to clear.
Paracetamol is an analgesic that relieves sinus and headache pain and fever.
The night tablets contain phenyleprhine, paracetamol and chlorpheniramine.
Chlorpheniramine is an antihistamine that relieves allergy and hay fever symptoms. It can cause drowsiness which when taken at night helps with getting a much needed good night sleep when suffering from cold and flu symptoms.
