Day Nurse Capsules For Cold & Flu - Pack Of 20


Checked By

What is Day Nurse Capsules For Cold & Flu?

Day Nurse is a treatment for cold and flu infections that contains three active ingredients that work to provide relief for the symptoms. The active ingredients are:

  • Paracetamol
  • Pholcodine
  • Pseudoephedrine

Paracetamol is a painkiller that will also help to reduce a fever. Pholcodine is a cough suppressant that helps to reduce a dry, tickly cough. Pseudoephedrine is a decongestant that helps you to breathe easier by opening the airways in the nose.


What causes a cold or the flu?

The cause of a cold or flu is usually through the nose, mouth, or eyes. Both a cold and the flu are infections that are spread through germs, either in the air when sneezing, or through touching surfaces with the hands. The infections themselves are actually very similar, though a cold’s symptoms are less severe than the flu.


Who is this Day Nurse treatment suitable for?

These Day Nurse Capsules are suitable to be used by adults and children aged 16 and over. Anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the capsules should not use them. These capsules should also not be used by anyone who has or has had any of the following:

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Taking amphetamines
  • Taking antidepressants known as Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
  • Taken any other medication that contains paracetamol

If you are using medication for another condition, then speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using.


Can these capsules be used by someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding?

Do not use these Day Nurse capsules when pregnant or breastfeeding unless instructed to do so by a doctor.


How should Day Nurse Capsules For Cold & Flu be used?

Take two capsules with a drink every four hours as needed. Do not take more than four doses, eight capsules, in a 24-hour period. Do not use for more than a week and if symptoms persist at that point, speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist for advice.


Are there any side effects?

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

  • Nervousness and difficulty sleeping
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Sweating
  • A dry mouth

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


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

You do not need a prescription for Day Nurse Capsules, however, you will be asked to complete a short medical questionnaire by your Chemist 4 U pharmacist before we can take your order. This includes some simple questions that all pharmacies legally are required to ask before supplying this kind of product. This helps our pharmacy team to be sure that Day Nurse is the best choice for you.
