Guiaphen Hd Uses
Guiaphen Hd is a drug used to treat patients who have nasal congestion, allergies, hay fever, the common cold or a cough. Nasal congestion makes it difficult for the patient to breathe due to swollen membranes lining the nose. Guiaphen Hd contains three medications to help address symptoms by suppressing the cough.
The antihistamines work to temporarily blocking the body's reactions against allergens which cause an allergic reaction in the body from occurring which relieves watery eyes and runny nose, and the decongestant relieves the swelling which should help the patient feel less sinus pressure.
