1. What Beechams All in One Tablets do

Beechams All in One Tablets are used for the short term relief of the symptoms
of colds, chills and flu with chesty coughs. These symptoms include headache,
shivers, aches and pains, blocked nose and painful sinuses, catarrh, sore throat
and a chesty, productive cough.
This medicine contains three active ingredients. Paracetamol is a painkiller and
reduces your temperature when you have a fever. Guaifenesin is an expectorant
which loosens phlegm and relieves a chesty cough. Phenylephrine hydrochloride
is a decongestant which unblocks your nose and sinuses helping you breathe
more easily.
