      Uses and Benefits

      Okacet Cold tablet is generally prescribed in the treatment of allergic rhinitis, symptoms such as runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, itchy, swelling, and watery eyes, etc. This medicine is also used in the treatment of fever, mild to moderate pains and nasal congestion. However, the uses mentioned here are not exhaustive. There may be other conditions for which this medication may be used upon doctor’s discretion.

      Mechanism of Action of Drugs

      Mechanism of Action of Drugs

      Cetirizine acts by blocking histamines which are produced in the body during allergic reactions. Thus by inhibiting these histamines, allergic reactions are controlled or reduced.

      Phenylephrine acts on alpha-adrenergic receptors, thus helps to reduce nasal congestion, allergies, fever and reduces swollen blood vessels in the nasal passage, if any.

      Paracetamol (or Acetaminophen) primarily acts as an analgesic and an antipyretic agent. It also possesses anti-inflammatory properties. It produces its analgesic effects by increasing the pain threshold and antipyresis by acting on the hypothalamic heat-regulating center.
