What is it used for?

  • Relieving the symptoms of colds and flu, such as headache, sore throat, aches and pains, fever, blocked nose and sinuses and sinus pain.

How does it work?

Lemsip max flu lemon sachets contain two active ingredients, paracetamol (1000mg) and pseudoephedrine hydrochloride (60mg).

Paracetamol is a simple painkilling medicine used to relieve mild to moderate pain and fever. Despite its widespread use for over 100 years, we still don't fully understand how paracetamol works to relieve pain and reduce fever. However, it is now thought that it works by reducing the production of prostaglandins in the brain and spinal cord.

The body produces prostaglandins in response to injury and certain diseases. One of the effects of prostaglandins is to sensitise nerve endings, causing pain (presumably to prevent us from causing further harm to the area). As paracetamol reduces the production of these nerve sensitising prostaglandins it is thought it may increase our pain threshold, so that although the cause of the pain remains, we can feel it less.

It is thought paracetamol reduces fever by affecting an area of the brain that regulates our body temperature (the hypothalamic heat-regulating center). The paracetamol in Lemsip max flu lemon sachets helps reduce fever and relieve aches and pains such as headache and sinus pain associated with colds and flu.

Pseudoephedrine is a type of medicine called a decongestant. It works by acting on alpha receptors that are found in the walls of blood vessels in the linings of the nasal passages and sinuses. It causes these blood vessels to contract and narrow, thereby decreasing blood flow into the linings of the nose and sinuses. This reduces the feeling of congestion and also reduces the production of mucus, helping to relieve a blocked nose.

The combination of active ingredients in Lemsip max flu lemon sachets helps to relieve the symptoms of colds and flu.

How do I take it?

  • Empty the contents of one sachet into a cup. Add half a cup of hot (not boiling) water and stir to dissolve. You can add cold water and sugar if you want before drinking.
  • For adults and children aged 12 years and over, one sachet should be taken every four to six hours as necessary, up to a maximum of four sachets in 24 hours.
