Published: 15th November, 2017 in: Cough, Cold and Flu
If you are looking for fast and effective nighttime relief from cough and cold symptoms, Night Nurse is a superb solution. If you are wondering if Night Nurse is a suitable product for you, read on to have all of your Night Nurse questions answered.
What is Night Nurse Used For?
The Night Nurse formula is used to relieve common symptoms that are synonymous with cold and flu such as a sore throat, runny nose, tickly coughs, headaches, shivers and aches and pains. Symptoms such as these can disturb a peaceful night’s sleep and Night Nurse is specifically designed to be taken at night and can help to keep them at bay throughout the night.
How it Works
Night Nurse contains three active ingredients including paracetamol, dextromethorphan and promethazine. The paracetamol acts fast to relieve you of any aches and pains and provides relief from headaches. It also helps to reduce your temperature should you be experiencing any feverish symptoms associated with a cold or the flu. Dextromethorphan helps to keep coughing at bay which is key when trying to get an uninterrupted night’s sleep. Promethazine targets the nasal passages and is an antihistamine that reduces nasal secretions to combat a runny nose.
How to Take It
Night Nurse is available in both liquid and tablet form so there is a formula available to suit every preference. The tablets are designed to be swallowed with water.
Night Nurse is not suitable for everyone and it should not be consumed by children under the age of 12. If you suffer from allergies, please check the ingredients thoroughly before use. If you have severe bronchitis or you suffer from asthma flair ups, you should avoid taking this product.
It is not compatible with the medications including antidepressants Phenelzine, Tranylcypromine, Isocarboxazid or Moclobemide or the anti-Parkinson's medicines Selegiline and Rasagiline so you should avoid taking Night Nurse if you have taken any of these medications in the last 14 days. Do not take this medicine if you suffer from liver or kidney disease.
Possible Side Effects
Night Nurse comes with a range of potential side effects including drowsiness, dry mouth, dizziness, blurred vision, difficulty concentrating, skin rash, difficulty passing urine and gut problems such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation and nausea. Everyone is unique and as a result you could experience one of these symptoms, a number of these symptoms or none of them. If you have any questions about taking Night Nurse, discuss them with your GP.
