Allergies, Cough & Cold Overview

The common cold (also known as nasopharyngitis, rhinopharyngitis, acute coryza,[1] head cold, or simply a cold) is a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract which primarily affects the nose. Symptoms include coughing, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, and fever which usually resolve in seven to ten days, with some symptoms lasting up to three weeks.

long orange pill with SP and <<<
Long orange pill,has SP on one side, and <<< on the other side. What is this I found? Please help. ## Hello, Tjhalls! How are you? I'm sorry, but so far, I've been unable to find anything that matches this description. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. The rather obscure imprint leads me to believe that this is an over the counter product, of some type. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## Mucinex

I am presently using this treatment as prescribed. I become relieved for the nasl part but have lung constrictions and wheezing breathing, I end up using anti allergy drugs to open up.

Solvin Tablet Vs Solvin Cold Tablet
Is there a difference between the compositions of Solvin Tablet vs Solvin COLD Tablet ? If so please discuss. Thks. ## As far as I can tell there is a difference between "Solvin" and "Solvin Cold AF" tablets. Solvin is a cough and cold preparation containing the active ingredients Bromhexine + Pseudoephedrine. This is a mucolytic & decongestant combination used in the treatment of respiratory disorders associated with viscid or excessive mucus. You can learn more about each drug on the page for Bromhexine Details and Pseudoephedrine Details Solvin Cold AF contains slightly different ingredients (Phenylephrine + Chlorpheniramine maleate), but is still used for the same purposes; primarily nasal congestion. I hope this helps! ## I am suffering from cough, running nose,...

Ciplactin And Dexona
Sir i take these 2 tablets since 3year.Now i stop to take this .so please tell me what is the side effect of it. ## Withdrawal symptoms are probably going to be very different for everyone, so I can only speak based on gathered research: There have been reported cases of psychotic syndrome after withdrawal of Cyproheptadine (Ciplactin), so I would suggest tapering off this one as opposed to just stopping it completely after all those years. I would also strongly recommend taking your time tapering off of Dexamethasone (Dexona) or you could have some very unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. I don't know the specific details of what one might come to expect, but I'd imagine it to be similar to the list of side effects for each medication. Learn More: Dexamethasone Details Cyproheptadi...

Corcidin overdose
Has anyone experienced, long term side effects from Coricidin. ## Hello, David! How are you? Coricidin is an over the counter product that's used to treat cold symptoms, so no one should be taking so much of it or taking it so often that they need to worry about long-term side effects. If you are suffering that frequently from cold symptoms, then you most likely do not have a cold and should see your doctor. Which Coricidin formulation did you take?

propan with iron multivitamins
is profan vit. is effective? ## Really, the effectiveness depends on what you are using it for. If you are using it as a vitamin supplement, then yes.

Propan with Iron contains 25mgs Buclizine, 80mgs Iron, 10mgs Nicotinamide, 10mgs B1, 5mcgs B12, 1mg B2 and 5mgs of B6. It is listed in the Indian drug databases as helping to improve the appetite.
