      Composition

      Composition

      The active ingredients of Wikoryl DS Oral Suspension 60ml are Chlorpheniramine Maleate 2mg, Paracetamol (also known as Acetaminophen) 250mg, Phenylephrine 5mg, and Sodium Citrate 60mg/5ml.

      Mechanism of Action of Drugs

      Mechanism of Action of Drugs

      Chlorpheniramine Maleate tames allergy symptoms by attaching to histamine receptors. Histamines are responsible for allergic and inflammatory reactions. Chlorpheniramine Maleate blocks the action of the endogenous histamine, by reducing the negative symptoms brought on by histamine.

      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.

      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.
      Sodium Citrate is used as an alkalizing agent.
