These symptoms may include sneezing, runny nose, itchy and watery eyes, nasal congestion, cough, and sore throat. The formulation may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your healthcare provider.

The capsules are formulated with Methocel E4M, a type of controlled-release polymer.

How Does it Work

A small arrow pointing down

This compounded formulation of Chlorpheniramine Maleate 8 mg, Pseudoephedrine HCl 60 mg, Guaifenesin 200 mg, and Dextromethorphan HBr 30 mg in slow-release capsules is a comprehensive treatment for a range of conditions such as allergies, colds, and coughs. Each component of this formulation plays a crucial role in symptom relief. Chlorpheniramine Maleate, an antihistamine, blocks the action of histamine, a substance in the body that triggers allergic symptoms. Pseudoephedrine HCl, a decongestant, narrows the blood vessels in the nasal passages, thereby reducing congestion. Guaifenesin, an expectorant, aids in thinning and loosening mucus in the lungs, making it easier to cough up. Lastly, Dextromethorphan HBr, a cough suppressant, works by decreasing the activity of the cough reflex in the brain.

What sets this formulation apart is its slow-release feature, achieved through the use of Methocel E4M, a controlled-release polymer. This design ensures a gradual release of the encapsulated medication over an extended period, offering sustained therapeutic effects. This slow-release mechanism allows for a more consistent level of the medication in the body, providing more effective and prolonged relief of symptoms. This also means reduced dosing frequency, which can lead to improved patient compliance, especially for medications requiring a controlled and prolonged release profile.

This formulation is particularly effective in relieving symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, nasal congestion, and cough. If you have any questions about this formulation or its mechanism of action, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are here to assist you.
