What is Allfen C
Allfen C is an over-the-counter (OTC) medication used to relieve symptoms of hay fever and other upper respiratory allergies. It is a combination of the antihistamine chlorpheniramine maleate and the decongestant phenylephrine hydrochloride.
Chlorpheniramine maleate is a first-generation antihistamine that works by blocking the effects of histamine, a chemical that is released during an allergic reaction. It helps to relieve sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, and other symptoms of allergies.
Phenylephrine hydrochloride is a decongestant that works by narrowing the blood vessels in the nose. This helps to relieve congestion and mucus production.
Benefits of Allfen C
and Its Uses.
Allfen C (acetaminophen and caffeine) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and analgesic used to treat pain and fever.
Allfen C is a combination of the analgesic acetaminophen and the stimulant caffeine. Both of these drugs have independently been shown to be effective at reducing pain and fever. The combination of these drugs is thought to be more effective than either drug alone.
Acetaminophen is a pain reliever that works by blocking the production of prostaglandins, chemicals that are involved in causing pain. It is a less potent pain reliever than NSAIDs, but it is less likely to cause stomach irritation.
Caffeine is a stimulant that works by blocking the effects of adenosine, a chemical that causes drowsiness. It is a weaker stimulant than drugs like amphetamine or cocaine, but it is less likely to cause side effects such as anxiety or restlessness.
