Ingredients of Taisho Pabron ACE PRO Cold Medicine

● Antipyretic and analgesic ingredients: Ibuprofen (Ibuprofen)

The new Pabron ACE PRO changes the main antipyretic and pain-relieving ingredient in the drug from the previous Acetaminophen (acetaminophen) to Ibuprofen (ibuprofen). Ibuprofen has low side effects, good pain relief and anti-inflammation effects, and is also a common antipyretic drug ingredient. Many well-known antipyretic medicines for children, painkillers for adults, and sore patches, such as EVE painkillers, etc., contain cloth as the main ingredient. Loffin.

Currently, the common painkillers on the market can be divided into three categories: acetaminophen (the kind that Biopro could use before), non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) and opioids. Ibuprofen is one of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) painkillers. It has strong anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. It is a favorite ingredient in Japanese comprehensive cold medicine.

However, some people are prone to drug allergy symptoms to ibuprofen, so if you have any symptoms after taking it, please seek medical attention immediately. In addition, ibuprofen is also easy to affect the gastric mucosa, so it is recommended to take it after meals as much as possible to reduce the possibility of causing gastrointestinal discomfort.

● Anti-nasal lotion ingredients: Chlorpheniramine Maleate (chlorpheniramine)

Pabron ACE PRO contains four phlegm-reducing and cough-relieving ingredients, which is the most of all Pabron. (The previous Pabron S Gold W and Gold A had only three types each.)

Dihydrocodeine (dihydrocodeine) is the strongest ingredient in Japanese household medicines that suppress coughs. It is actually a kind of anesthetic, which uses its anesthetic function to act on the cough center to achieve antitussive effect.

Codeine has side effects such as central nervous system sedation, headache, and respiratory depression, and excessive or long-term use has the risk of addiction. Therefore, the conditions and scope of codeine use in children have been limited in Taiwan. If children under the age of 12 want to take medicines containing codeine, please consult a doctor first, and do not take it on their own. Adults should not take it for a long time to avoid addiction.

Another cough suppressant, Methylephedrine, is a bronchodilator that is also effective in suppressing coughs. Patients with hyperthyroidism, high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes should avoid taking it.

As a side note, it is indicated on the product manual that adults over the age of 15 can take it, please follow the instructions!
