What is Lemsip?

It is a combination product containing paracetamol and a decongestant. The decongestant in Lemon Flu is pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, a strong decongestant that helps clear a blocked nose. Lemsip Cold & Flu contains phenylephrine hydrochloride, a moderate decongestant. Together the decongestant and paracetamol are able to help relieve cold and flu symptoms such as sore throat, body aches, congestion and pain.

How does Lemsip work?

Paracetamol and phenylephrine/ pseudoephedrine work in two ways to relieve symptoms. The exact way paracetamol works is still unknown but it is a well established and safe treatment for mild to moderate pain. The decongestants reduce swelling of the sinus passages of the nose. This opens up the airways and relieves pressure build-ups which can cause pain.
