What is Night Nurse?
Night nurse can be used for the ‘night time relief’ of the major symptoms associated with cold and flu like fever, chills and shivering. The medicine contains three main active ingredients:
Paracetamol: paracetamol is used to relieve the pain associated with flu or cold. It is also used to help deal with fevers to bring them down.
Promethazine: promethazine is an antihistamine, which will help dry up a runny nose and aids in restful sleep.
Dextromethorphan: dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant that helps in relieving a dry or tickly cough.
Like all medicines, Night Nurse capsules can have side effects, but not everyone will get them. Children and elderly may be more likely to experience side effects with medicine.
The following side effects might occur:
- Drowsiness, dizziness, blurred vision, difficulty concentrating, unsteadiness, clumsiness, headache, dry mouth.
