What is Vix Anti-Influenza Max and what it is used for

Vix Anti-Influenza Max is used to relieve cold and flu symptoms such as headaches, pain, sore throat, nasal congestion and to lower the temperature. It contains two active ingredients:

  • paracetamol is a well-known painkiller (analgesic) and may also lower fever (antipyretic);
  • phenylephrine hydrochloride (nasal decongestant) reduces the swelling of the airways in the nose and thus relieves the condition of nasal congestion.

Do not take Vix Anti-Influenza Max:

  • if you are allergic to paracetamol, phenylephrine or any of the other ingredients (see section 6);
  • if you have severe heart disease;
  • if you have high blood pressure (hypertension);
  • if you have severe liver disease;
  • if you have kidney disease or kidney problems;
  • if you have severe overactivity of the thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism);
  • if you have glaucoma (increased pressure in the eye) of a narrow angle type;
  • if you are currently taking monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) or have taken them in the last two weeks;
  • if you are taking other decongestants for colds and flu.
  • Do not give Vix Anti-Influenza Max to children under 15 years of age.

Important: contains paracetamol. Do not take at the same time with other products that contain paracetamol.

Medical attention should be sought immediately in the event of an overdose, even when you are feeling well due to the risk of delayed, severe liver damage.

Ask your doctor or pharmacist before taking Vix Anti-Influenza Max:

  • if you have a problem with liver function;
  • if you have severe overactivity of the thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism);
  • if you are a man and have an enlarged prostate gland, as it may be more difficult to urinate;
