Buy Lemsip Max Cold and Flu Blackcurrant 

Lemsip Max Cold and Flu Blackcurrant is a hot drink treatment used for the relief of cold and flu symptoms including:


  • Headache 
  • Fever
  • Blocked nose
  • Body aches and pains 
  • Sore throat


How Lemsip Max Cold and Flu works

The sachets contain 2 active ingredients, paracetamol and phenylephrine hydrochloride.

Paracetamol works to relieve pain and reduce fever.

On the other hand, phenylephrine hydrochloride relieves a blocked nose by causing the blood vessels in the linings of the nasal passages and sinuses to contract and narrow. This decreases the blood flow in those areas, reducing the congested feeling. It also reduces the production of mucus.



Always take Lemsip Max Cold and Flu exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. 

The sachet should be made into a hot drink. Dissolve one sachet into a mug of hot water, but not boiling water. Stir until it fully dissolves. 

One sachet can be taken every 4-6 hours. Do not take more than 4 sachets in 24 hours.
