DESCRIPTION:
TOREX COLD & FLU contains an analgesic-antipyretic Paracetamol with decongestant Phenylephrine and an antihistamine Chlorpheniramine Maleate. Paracetamol is a para-aminophenol derivative, produces antipyresis by acting on the hypothalamic heat regulating center and analgesia by elevating the pain threshold. Phenylephrine Hydrochloride is a selective 1-adrenergic receptor agonist used primarily as a decongestant. Chlorpheniramine Maleate an alkylamine derivative is anti-histaminic that causes moderate degree of sedation. Sodium Citrate is a mucolytic, an agent which breaks down mucus, so that coughing up phlegm is easier. Ammonium Chloride is the expectorant which thins mucus. Menthol gives a sensation of coolness.
 
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Paracetamol works by blocking the action of a substance in the body called cyclo-oxygenase. Cyclo-oxygenase is involved in the production of prostaglandins (chemicals in the body) which cause pain, swelling and inflammation. Phenylephrine constricts the blood vessels in the nasal mucous membranes and allows the air passages to open up. The majority of the sympathomimetic action is due to direct stimulation of the adrenoceptors. Chlorpheniramine Maleate has sedative & anti-cholinergic actions, but lacks selectivity for the cough centre.
