Lemsip Max Cold & Flu – 16 Capsules


Checked By

What are Lemsip Max Cold & Flu Capsules?

Lemsip Max Cold & Flu Capsules are a treatment that will work to reduce the effects of the cold and the flu. They work thanks to the active ingredients that are in the capsules. These are:

  • Paracetamol
  • Caffeine
  • Phenylephrine

Paracetamol is a common painkiller that also helps to reduce the effects of a fever. Caffeine is a mild stimulant that helps to provide relief for drowsiness and fatigue. Phenylephrine is a decongestant that reduces the swelling of the nasal passages in the nose.


What is the cause of a cold or the flu?

Both a cold and the flu are viral infections that spread through germs, either in the air because of people sneezing, or through touching surfaces that have germs on them. Germs that are on hard surfaces can live for up to 24 hours. Cold and flu germs can also get into the body by the eyes, the nose, or the mouth.


Who are these Lemsip capsules suitable for?

Lemsip Max Capsules are suitable to be used by adults and children aged 16 and over. These capsules should not be used by anyone who is allergic to any of the ingredients contained in the capsules. You should also not use if you have or have had any of the following:

  • A serious heart condition
  • High blood pressure
  • An overactive thyroid
  • Are taking any other decongestants
  • Haven taken antidepressants called Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs) in the last 14 days

If you taking any medication for any other condition, then it is recommended that you speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using these capsules.


Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use these capsules?

Anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding should only use these capsules if they have been instructed to do so by a medical professional.


How should Lemsip Max Cold & Flu Capsules be used?

These capsules should be swallowed whole with the use of a glass of water. Take 2 capsules every 4-6 hours as a need but do not exceed 4 doses in a 24-hour period. If you take a nighttime paracetamol treatment, then only use a maximum of 3 doses in a 24-hour period. If your symptoms don’t improve after 3 days, then speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist.
