Each Night Nurse Capsule is green and white in appearance and contains three active ingredients, paracetamol 500mg, dextromethorphan hydrobromide 7.5mg and promethazine hydrochloride 10mg. Paracetamol acts as a pain killer (analgesic) and also helps to reduce body temperature when you have a fever. Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant that helps to relieve dry or tickly coughs, while promethazine is an antihistamine which works to dry up a runny nose. By helping to relieve the symptoms of cold and flu, Night Nurse Capsules encourage a good night's sleep and ensure you awake feeling better.
