Pharmacology of Dixar Plus Syrup 100 ml

The preparation is a mixture of antitussive, decongestant and antihistamine. Dextromethorphan is a safe and effective non-narcotic antitussive, which has a central effect on the cough center in the spinal cord. Although it is structurally related to morphine, it has no analgesic or addictive properties and usually has little sedation. Phenylephrine is a decongestant that can constrict blood vessels in the nasal passages. Phenylephrine is used to temporarily relieve nasal congestion, sinuses, and ear symptoms caused by the common cold, flu, allergies, sinusitis, and bronchitis. The effect of this drug is to reduce the swelling of the nose and ears, thereby reducing discomfort and making breathing easier. Triprolidine is an antihistamine used to relieve allergy symptoms, hay fever and the common cold. These symptoms include skin rash, watery eyes, itchy eyes/nose/throat/skin, cough, runny nose and sneezing. It is a potent competitive antagonist of pyrrolidine histamine H1 receptors, with mild central nervous system inhibitory properties, and can cause drowsiness. By antagonizing another natural substance, acetylcholine, it helps to dry some body fluids to relieve symptoms such as tearing eyes and runny nose.
