What is Beechams Max Strength All In One Ultra Capsules?

Beechams Max Strength All In One Capsules are an effective form of treatment for relieving the effects of a cold or flu. Each capsule contains three active ingredients that help to provide relief for cold and flu symptoms:

  • Paracetamol
  • Phenylephrine
  • Guaifenesin

Paracetamol is a painkiller that will reduce headaches and other aches and pains, as well as relieving a fever if you have one. Phenylephrine is a decongestant that will unblock the nose and sinuses, helping you to breathe easier. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which reduces the mucus that blocks the throat and chest, helping you to breathe and also helping to treat a mucus cough.


What’s the difference between a cold and the flu?

Both cold and flu are caused by a virus. There are more types of cold virus, of which there are many, and the flu, which there are significantly fewer of. A cold is generally milder than flu but the symptoms are similar. A cold will also appear more gradually instead of the flu which comes within a few hours. Cold symptoms generally only affect your nose and throat and you can do things you normally would without being infected. Whereas with the flu you will feel tired and feel too ill to do anything.


Who are these Beechams capsules suitable for?

These capsules are suitable for adults and children aged 16 and over who are looking for fast and effective relief from cold and flu symptoms. Anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the capsules should not use them. They should also not be used if you have or had:

  • 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

You should also not use if you are currently using any other form of cold and flu treatment.


Can these Beechams capsules be used by someone pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, then you should speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using these capsules.


How should Beechams Max Strength All In One Ultra Capsules be used?

Take two capsules every four hours. Do not exceed taking eight capsules in any 24 hours. Do not take for longer than five days unless advised to do so.
