I have been able to verify that yes this is a cold remedy from Italy. I found the ingredients in their language but can't find anything translated. Anyway here goes: Paracetamolo 600mg., Acido ascorbico 40mg, and Fenilefrina Cloridrate 10mg. Im fairly certain the second ingredient is ascorbic acid and the third one is some type of an antihistamine, but I have no clue as to what the first ingredient is. Perhaps someone else can answer it from here!

I had terrible Flue symptoms while visiting Rome. An employee of the hotel I stayed at gave me a packet of Tachifludec. I was so sick and this OTC medicine was like a miracle drug! Within an hour I felt like a new person and was able to enjoy the rest of our vacation with no more symptoms! I would like to find it in the USA, but so far no luck. Anyone know if it's sold in the USA and how to get it?
Thanks in advance!

tachifludec is acetaminophen + vitamin c+ phynylprine hydrocloride
Therefore, in the US you can use Theraflu.

I actually used Theraflu before, and I prefer it than Tachifludec from Italy.

Theraflu contains Acetaminophen, Chlorpheniramine and Phenylephrine, so it has an extra ingredient and is lacking the Ascorbic Acic (Vitamin C.)

Thus, it is not identical and I can't find anything listed in the US that has the same ingredient combo.

Does anyone else know of anything?

Dear all,
I agree tachifludec is a very good OTC against cold and flu symptoms. I am Italian and I take it with me anywhere I go (when it's cold).
As far as I can see, it is a simple mixture of paracetamol (very commonly used to decrease fever), Vitamin C, of which you all know about and Phenylephrine. The latter is more commonly used as nasal spray as decongestant.
I am surprised it is not available outside Italy and I hope they'll be able to sell it more, for the good of Angelini, one of the last surviving entirely Italian pharma companies

I experienced the miracle results of Tachifludec while in Italy like the others mentioned above. Since the last post was a while ago, has anyone found a source available in the US?

I am in Italy. Yesterday had a horrible cough, chest congestion and malaise. Spoke to my tour guide, she recommended tachifluedec! My symptoms decreased and I could breathe again. Was able to enjoy Venezia! I would like it in USA.
