Cold and Flu

Vim & Co has a range of over the counter products available to treat common cold and flu symptoms.
Products in this range include day and night cold and flu tablets, nasal sprays, throat lozenges, throat gargles and sprays and immune boosters.
Cold and flu tablets contain either pseudoephedrine or phenylephrine as a primary decongestant to unblock stuffy noses or sinuses and clear the foggy, heavy-headed feeling that comes with a cold.
They will usually also have paracetamol to help with pain or fever. The night time component usually contains an antihistamine ingredient that helps to dry up a runny nose and to cause drowsiness, to aid in sleep.
Some cold and flu tablets may or may not contain an ingredient for cough and it’s usually an ingredient for a dry cough rather than a wet/chesty cough.
Along with many variations of cold and flu tablets- for day, night or both, with and without an ingredient for cough – comes a whole range of other products that help with the symptoms of a cold, like sore throat and fever. There are also natural health options that may help to boost the body’s natural immune system and these can be used in conjunction with traditional medicines that are available over the counter.
Why should I talk to the pharmacist?
Oral decongestants are not suitable for patients with high uncontrolled blood pressure and those on other medications. Our Pharmacist can recommend safe alternative options based on your current medical conditions and other medications you are taking.
