Common Cold treatment in Children with cold

Curefacts.com - Evidence icon EVIDENCE | POORLY TESTED - 1 study with 201 children
Curefacts.com - Circle icon EFFECTIVENESS | EFFECTIVE for fever and pain
Curefacts.com - Circle icon SAFETY | MILD RISKS
Treatment with antihistamine, analgesic and decongestant combination (e.g. Acetaminophen, Chlorpheniramine and Pseudoephedrine). Only 1 valid study conducted, with 201 children. Ineffective and unsafe for younger children. Seems safe, but no better than regular analgesic (e.g. Acetaminophen) for older children.

Additional Information

Antihistamine, analgesic and decongestant combination

Antihistamines are drugs which treat allergic rhinitis and other allergies. As an alternative to taking an antihistamine, people who suffer from allergies can instead avoid the substance which irritates them. Antihistamines are usually for short-term treatment. An analgesic or painkiller is any member of the group of drugs used to achieve analgesia, relief from pain. Analgesic drugs act in various ways on the peripheral and central nervous systems. Analgesics include paracetamol (known in North America as acetaminophen or simply APAP), the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as the salicylates, and opioid drugs such as morphine and oxycodone. A decongestants, or nasal decongestant, is a type of pharmaceutical drug that is used to relieve nasal congestion in the upper respiratory tract. The active ingredient in most decongestants is either pseudoephedrine or phenylephrine. (source)
