Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2017.


Combined drug, the effect of which is due to its constituent components.
It has antipyretic, analgesic, vasoconstrictive action, eliminates the symptoms of "colds".Narrows the vessels and eliminates the swelling of the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity and nasopharynx.
Paracetamol has an analgesic and antipyretic effect by suppressing the synthesis of prostaglandins in the central nervous system.
Does not affect the function of platelets and hemostasis.
Phenyramin is an antiallergic agent, a blocker of histamine H 1 -receptors.
Eliminates allergic symptoms, has a moderate degree of sedation, and also exhibits antimuscarinic activity.
Phenylephrine - alpha 1- adrenomimetic, causes vasoconstriction, eliminates edema and flushing of the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity.



Paracetamol is rapidly and almost completely absorbed from the digestive tract.
C max in plasma is achieved after 10-60 min after ingestion. It is distributed in most body tissues. Penetrates through the placental barrier, excreted in breast milk. In therapeutic concentrations, binding to plasma proteins is negligible, but increases with increasing concentration. It is subjected to primary metabolism in the liver. It is excreted mainly with urine in the form of glucuronides and sulfates. T 1/2 is from 1 to 3 hours.

C max of the phenyramine in plasma is reached after approximately 1-2.5 hours. T 1/2 of the phenyramine - 16-19 hours. 70-83% of the dose is excreted in the urine in the form of metabolites or unchanged.


Phenylephrine is absorbed from the digestive tract.
Metabolized at the "first passage" through the intestinal wall and in the liver, therefore when administered phenylephrine hydrochloride is characterized by limited bioavailability. C max in plasma is achieved in the range from 45 minutes to 2 hours. It is excreted by the kidneys almost completely in the form of sulfate compounds. T 1/2 is 2-3 hours.
Ascorbic acid

Quickly and completely absorbed from the digestive tract.
Binding to plasma proteins - 25%. It is excreted in the form of metabolites with urine. Ascorbic acid, taken in excessive amounts, is quickly excreted unchanged in urine.

- symptomatic treatment of infectious and inflammatory diseases (ARVI, including influenza), accompanied by fever, chills, body aches, headaches and muscle pain, runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing.


The contents of one sachet are dissolved in 1 glass of hot, but not boiling water. Take in hot. Repeated dose can be taken every 4-6 hours (no more than 3-4 doses within 24 hours).

Impact on the ability to drive vehicles and mechanisms

Teraflu В® from influenza and cold can cause drowsiness, so during treatment it is not recommended to drive vehicles or engage in other activities requiring concentration of attention and high speed of psychomotor reactions.


Symptoms of overdose are mainly due to paracetamol.


Symptoms: mainly manifested after taking 10-15 g of paracetamol.
In severe cases of overdose, paracetamol has a hepatotoxic effect, incl. can cause liver necrosis.Also, an overdose can cause irreversible nephropathy and irreversible liver damage. The severity of the overdose depends on the dose, so patients should be warned about the prohibition of simultaneous use of paracetamol-containing drugs. There is a risk of poisoning especially in elderly patients, in children, in patients with liver diseases, in cases of chronic alcoholism, in patients with malnutrition and in patients taking inductors of microsomal liver enzymes.
An overdose of paracetamol can lead to hepatic insufficiency, encephalopathy, coma and death.

Symptoms of an overdose of paracetamol in the first 24 hours: pallor of the skin, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, convulsions.
Pain in the abdomen may be the first sign of liver damage and usually does not appear within 24-48 hours and can sometimes manifest later, after 4-6 days. Damage to the liver is manifested to the maximum extent after 72-96 hours after taking the drug. Also, there may be a violation of glucose metabolism and metabolic acidosis. Even in the absence of liver damage, acute renal failure and acute tubular necrosis may develop. Cases of cardiac arrhythmia and development of pancreatitis have been reported.
Treatment: the administration of acetylcysteine ​​IV or orally as an antidote, gastric lavage, intake of methionine may have a positive effect for at least 48 hours after an overdose.
Recommended reception of activated charcoal, monitoring of breathing and circulation. In the case of seizures, diazepam may be prescribed.
Pheniramine and phenylephrine (overdose symptoms are combined because of the risk of mutual potentiation of the parasympatolytic effect of phenyramine and the sympathomimetic effect of phenylephrine in case of drug overdose)

Symptoms: drowsiness, which is followed by anxiety (especially in children), visual disturbances, rash, nausea, vomiting, headache, increased excitability.
dizziness, insomnia, circulatory disorders, coma, convulsions, behavioral changes, increased blood pressure and bradycardia. When an overdose of phenyramine was reported cases of atropine-like "psychosis".
Treatment: there is no specific antidote.
Normal relief measures, including appointment, are required.
activated charcoal, saline laxatives, measures to support cardiac and respiratory functions.
Do not prescribe psychostimulant (methylphenidate) because of the danger of seizures. With arterial hypotension, the use of vasopressor drugs is possible.
In the case of increased blood pressure, iv administration of alpha-blockers is possible,
Phenylephrine is a selective agonist? 1- adrenoreceptor, so the hypotensive effect of overdose should be treated by blocking? 1- adrenoreceptors. When developing seizures, administer diazepam.


Strengthens the effects of MAO inhibitors, sedatives, ethanol.

The risk of hepatotoxic effects of paracetamol increases with the simultaneous use of barbiturates, phenytoin, phenobarbital, carbamazepine, rifampicin, isoniazid, zidovudine and other inducers of microsomal liver enzymes.

With prolonged regular use of paracetamol, an increase in the anticoagulant effect of warfarin and other coumarins is possible, and the risk of bleeding increases.Single application of paracetamol has no significant effect.

Metoclopramide increases the rate of absorption of paracetamol and reduces the time it reaches its C max in blood plasma.
Similarly, domperidone may increase the rate of absorption of paracetamol.
Paracetamol can lead to an increase in T 1/2 chloramphenicol.

Paracetamol is able to reduce the bioavailability of lamotrigine, with the possible decrease in the effectiveness of lamotrigine due to the induction of its metabolism in the liver.

Absorption of paracetamol can be reduced with simultaneous application with colestyramine, but a decrease in absorption is insignificant if colestyramine is taken an hour later.

Regular use of paracetamol simultaneously with zidovudine can cause neutropenia and increase the risk of liver damage.

Probenecid affects the metabolism of paracetamol.
In patients who simultaneously use probenecid, the dose of paracetamol should be reduced.
Hepatotoxicity of paracetamol is enhanced by prolonged excessive use of ethanol (alcohol).

Paracetamol can affect the results of a uric acid test using the precipitating reagent phosphotungstate.


It is possible to increase the influence of other substances on the CNS (for example, MAO inhibitors, tricyclic antidepressants, alcohol, antiparkinsonics, barbiturates, tranquilizers and narcotics).
Pheniramine can inhibit the action of anticoagulants.

Teraflu В® against influenza and colds is contraindicated in patients who receive or have received MAO inhibitors within the past 2 weeks.
Phenylephrine can potentiate the effect of MAO inhibitors and cause hypertensive crisis.
The simultaneous use of phenylephrine with other sympathomimetic drugs or tricyclic antidepressants (for example, amitriptyline) may lead to an increased risk of unwanted reactions from the cardiovascular system.

Phenylephrine may reduce the effectiveness of beta-blockers and other antihypertensive drugs (for example, debrisoquine, guanethidine, reserpine, methyldopa).Perhaps increased risk of hypertension and other side effects from the cardiovascular system.

The simultaneous use of phenylephrine with digoxin and cardiac glycosides may increase the risk of heart rhythm or myocardial infarction.

The simultaneous use of phenylephrine with ergot alkaloids (ergotamine and metisergid) may increase the risk of ergotism.


The drug is approved for use as a means of OTC.


The drug should be stored out of reach of children at a temperature of no higher than 25 В° C.
Shelf life - 2 years.
