How it works
Chlorpheniramine blocks the action of certain substances produced by the body which induce allergic reactions. Phenylephrine acts by reducing the swelling of the blood vessels in the nasal passages, making it easier to breathe. Thus, the combination is better effective for treating symptoms caused by various conditions such as a common cold, sinusitis, rhinitis, etc.
