MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Torex total is a combined drug, the action of which is caused by its components.  Paracetamol is used to relieve mild to moderate pain and fever. Phenylephrine is a decongestant. It works by acting on alpha receptors that are found in the walls of blood vessels in the linings of the nasal passages and sinuses. It causes these blood vessels to contract and narrow, thereby decreasing blood flow into the linings of the nose and   sinuses. This reduces the feeling of congestion and also reduces the production of mucus, helping to relieve a blocked nose. Caffeine is a mild stimulant that helps reduce fatigue. It also enhances the painkilling effect of paracetamol.
