Thanks for writing in. Febrex plus contains paracetamol , chlorpheniramine maleate , phenylephrine hydrochloride . Apart from paracetamol, these are basically anti-allergic agents. However, this will make you sleepy and I would suggest that you totally avoid driving or handling any machinery after taking this drug.
Steam inhalation, warm saline gargles and Otrivin nasal drops every 4-6 hours will help relieve your symptoms. Also, wash your bed linen in hot water, keep your house absolutely clean and change your pillow covers every day.
Hope this helps.
