Prometh VC Plain is the combination of antihistamine and decongestant (pseudoephedrine) given to treat and relieve symptoms of seasonal allergies, common cold and flu as well as upper respiratory tract.
The antihistamine in Prometh VC Plain relieves the symptoms of seasonal allergies and hay fever such as itchy, runny nose, sneezing, and watery eyes as well as symptoms of allergic reactions like hives or swelling. The decongestant (pseudoephedrine) in Prometh VC Plain deals with constricting the blood vessels, which in turn reduces the blood, flow to the nasal passages thereby improving the flow of air and reducing nasal secretions.
