Product details

Numark Max Strength Cold & Flu Day & Night Capsules are used for the relief of the symptoms of colds and flu, including aches and pains, sore throat, headache, nasal congestion (blocked nose) and feverishness (high temperature). The Day capsules can also relieve tiredness and drowsiness.

This medicine contains:

  • paracetamol which is a pain reliever (analgesic) and helps reduce your temperature when you have a fever
  • phenylephrine which is a decongestant to reduce swelling in the passages of the nose to help you breathe more easily.

The Day capsules also contain:

  • caffeine which helps to increase the pain relief from paracetamol and makes you more alert.

Warnings / Side effects Expand

Do not take this medicine if you:

  • are allergic to paracetamol, caffeine, phenylephrine or any of the other ingredients
  • have a serious heart condition or cardiovascular disorder(s)
  • have high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • have a history of stomach ulcers
  • have an overactive thyroid
  • have an enlarged prostate
  • are taking antidepressant drugs called monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI’s), or have taken them within the last 14 days - these are medicines such as phenelzine and isocarboxazid.

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking this medicine if you:

  • are pregnant or breast-feeding
  • suffer from kidney or liver problems, including alcoholic liver disease
  • have diabetes
  • have circulatory disorders such as a condition called Raynaud’s Phenomenon, which results from poor circulation in the fingers and toes

Other medicines and this medicine Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines especially:

  • medicines to treat high cholesterol levels which reduce the amount of fat in the blood such as colestyramine
  • medicines to control feeling sick or being sick such as metoclopramide or domperidone
  • medicines called anti-coagulants, which are used to thin the blood such as warfarin or other coumarins – you may take occasional doses of paracetamol but should consult your doctor if you need to take it on a regular basis
  • barbiturates (for epilepsy or to help you sleep), such as phenobarbitones
  • tricyclic antidepressants such as imipramine, amitriptyline
  • medicines to lower blood pressure, treat heart or circulatory problems such as beta blockers (e.g. atenolol) or vasodilators (e.g. hydralazine)
  • other decongestant drugs such as ephedrine or xylometazoline
  • flucloxacillin (antibiotic), due to a serious risk of blood and fluid abnormality (high anion gap metabolic acidosis) that must have urgent treatment and which may occur particularly in case of severe renal impairment, sepsis (when bacteria and their toxins circulate in the blood leading to organ damage), malnutrition, chronic alcoholism, and if the maximum daily doses of paracetamol are used.
