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