If you’re suffering from a cold or the flu, symptoms such as an unshakable cough, a runny nose, a sore throat, a headache, and general aches and pains can be a real downer. But they can often be extra troublesome at night, where they can keep you awake for hours and make you feel decidedly groggy the next morning.

Looking for a treatment that specifically addresses night-time cold and flu symptoms and helps to aid a restful and uninterrupted night’s sleep? Night Nurse contains 3 active ingredients — promethazine hydrochloride, dextromethorphan hydrobromide, and paracetamol — that help to bring down your temperature, soothe your sore throat, suppress your cough, and alleviate muscle aches and pains during the night.
