Buy Beechams Flu Plus - 16 Caplets

Beechams Flu Plus - 16 Caplets provide you with effective relief from the symptoms of the cold and flu. 

 

How Beechams Flu Plus works

Beechams Flu Plus contains 3 active ingredients. The first ingredient is paracetamol, a painkiller that reduces your temperature when you have a fever.
