How it works
Triprolidine works by blocking certain natural substances (histamines) responsible for causing an allergic reaction. 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.
