Beechams Flu Plus – 16 Caplets

Checked By

What are Beechams Flu Plus Caplets?

Beechams Flu Plus is a form of treatment that works to provide relief for the symptoms of the flu as well as a cold. It works thanks to the three active ingredients contained in the caplets, which are:

  • Paracetamol
  • Phenylephrine
  • Caffeine

Paracetamol is a painkiller that also helps to reduce fever if you have one. Phenylephrine is a decongestant that helps to unblock the nose and sinuses and helps you to breathe more easily. Caffeine is a mild stimulant that will reduce fatigue and help give you an energy boost.

 

What is the flu?

The flu, short for influenza, is an infection that is caused by a virus. Unlike a cold, where there are many different types, there are only three main types of flu:

  • Type A
  • Type B
  • Type C

Type A and B are the most common types, as they are the ones that go around seasonally. Type C flu causes more minor respiratory issues. The flu can spread through the air by people coughing, sneezing, and also by germs. The germs can live on surfaces for up to 24 hours. The common symptoms associated with the flu include a blocked or a runny nose, coughing, sneezing, a headache, and feeling sick. There are more potential symptoms that you most likely not experience all of them at once.

 

Who are these caplets suitable for?

These Beechams caplets are suitable to be used by adults and children who are suffering from cold and flu symptoms. Anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the caplets should not use them. You should also not use these caplets if you have or had any of the following:

  • Kidney or liver problems
  • An overactive thyroid
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Glaucoma
  • Tricyclic antidepressants
  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) prescribed for depression
  •  Beta-blockers

Do not use these Beechams caplets if you are currently using any other treatment for a cold or flu.

 

Can these caplets be used when pregnant or breastfeeding?

These Beechams caplets should not be used when pregnant or breastfeeding because of the high caffeine content in them. Speak to a doctor or pharmacist for recommendations on what treatment to use if you are suffering from a cold or flu.

 

How should Beechams Flu Plus Caplets be used?

Take two caplets every four hours. Do not exceed four doses (8 caplets) in a 24-hour period. Do not take for more than 7 days and avoid high caffeine drinks such as coffee and tea while using these caplets.

 

Are there any side effects?

Like with many medicines, there is a chance of side effects. Potential side effects when using these caplets include:

  • An allergic reaction including a skin rash and itching.
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Breathing problems
  • Fevers or infections
  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite
  • A fast or irregular heartbeat
  • A headache
  • Diarrhoea
  • Difficulty sleeping

If you notice any of these side effects or any other side effect, then stop using and speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist as soon as possible. You can also record any side effect that you notice using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.

 

Why do I need to answer questions to buy this product?

This includes some simple questions that all pharmacies legally are required to ask before supplying this kind of product.
