Mode of Action
Triprolidine is a potent competitive histamine H1-receptor antagonist with mild sedating and antimuscarinic properties. Pseudoephedrine, an alpha- and beta-adrenergic receptor agonist, mediates vasoconstriction via direct stimulation of alpha-adrenergic receptors of the respiratory mucosa. Dextromethorphan is a centrally acting cough suppressant which acts on the cough centre in the medulla.
