CORIMINIC TABLET is not recommended for use if you have asthma or lower respiratory disorders, severely high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, overactive thyroid gland, gastrointestinal or genitourinary obstruction and bladder or prostate problems.

Before taking CORIMINIC TABLET, inform your doctor if you have any liver, kidney, heart or lung problems, fits, blood circulation problems (including raynaud’s phenomenon, which makes the toes and fingers numb and pale).

CORIMINIC TABLET is not recommended for use in pregnant and breastfeeding women. CORIMINIC TABLET is not recommended for use in children under 6 years of age (including neonates and premature infants).

The most common side effects of taking CORIMINIC TABLET are nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headache and blurred vision. Consult your doctor if any of the side effects worsen.

USES OF CORIMINIC TABLET

HOW CORIMINIC TABLET WORKS

CORIMINIC TABLET relieves cold symptoms where phenylephrine decreases nasal congestion by acting on α1-adrenergic receptors in the small vessels of the nasal mucosa to produce constriction, resulting in decreased swelling and increased drainage of the sinus cavities and chlorpheniramine binds to the histamine H1 receptor and blocks its action, resulting in temporary relief of the negative symptoms (runny nose, sneezing, watery and itchy eyes) brought on by histamine.
