Procold is most likely the number one prescription by local chemist shops for treatment of cold & catarrh, sneezing, headache and nasal congestion.
But according to recent reseaches carried out , we realised how unfortunately deadly this widely use drug is to our human body.
(1) LIVER DAMAGE: yes, procold has the capacity to damage your liver as it is essentially a combination of very powerful known chemical agents like “Pseudoephedrine HCl ( which reduces nasal congestion in lungs and nasal areas) Chlorpheniramine Maleate and paracetamol among others. So it is very safe to avoid prolong usage and high dosage. As it will most likely impair the liver.
(2) It could trigger Hypertension and Stroke:
Procold contains some sympathomimetic agents ( examples are Ephedrine, Propanolamine and phenylephrine). Which are sensitive agents to potential stroke patients ( not only elderly and obesed people but some young people could fall in these category)
(3) Dipsomaniac patient ( simply someone who drinks alcohol)
Not necessarily with the drug, as long as you do drink alcohol. I will advise you to go for other drugs, because you have higher risk of liver function damage if you use procold
(4) Caution inquiry should be made for patients with liver and renal insufficiency, glaucoma, prostrate enlargement, hyperthyroidism, cardiovascular disturbance and headache.
(5 The last and the best advice is to consult your physician
