What is Antigrippine?
Antigrippine reduces pain and fever. The active ingredients in this medicine are paracetamol, caffeine and Vitamin C. Antigrippine can be used to treat pain and fever caused by, for example, the flu or a cold. This medicine is available without a prescription. Antigrippine is available online through a Dokteronline.com partner pharmacy.
What is this product used for?
The paracetamol in Antigrippine reduces fever and pain. The caffeine has a stimulating effect and gives you a boost of energy. Caffeine also reinforces the effect of paracetamol, accelerating its action. Vitamin C helps boost resistance, which enables the body to get the virus under control and heal faster. Antigrippine is therefore a very effective remedy for flu and cold symptoms. It can also be used for other pain conditions such as headache, toothache, muscle or joint pain, pain from vaccinations or dental procedures, and menstrual pain.
