Kolbik is a salt composition of four medicine; Caffeine + Chlorpheniramine Maleate + Paracetamol + Phenylephrine which are used in the treatment of common cold symptoms.
Chlorpheniramine Maleate is also known as antiallergic which helps in treating allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes, and sneezing. Paracetamol is an analgesic also called a pain reliever and an antipyretic which is a fever reducer. The tablet helps in blocking the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that are the reason for pain and fever in a patient. Caffeine promotes the effectiveness of paracetamol and makes the brain more alert and active. Phenylephrine is called decongestant which narrows the small blood vessels offering short-term relief from stuffiness in the nose.
