Tritan Tablets

Generic Name:chlorpheniramine, dextromethorphan, and phenylephrine

Tritan is an antihistamine which helps to reduce the natural chemical histamine present in the human body. Histamine is used to produce symptoms of sneezing, itching, watery eyes, and runny nose.

Phenylephrine is a decongestant which helps to shrink blood vessels in the nasal passages resulting in dilated blood vessels which can cause nasal congestion or stuffy nose.

Tritan is used to treat seasonal allergy, such as sneezing, itching, watery eyes, and runny nose.
