What are the ingredients in Coryx?
Each tablet of Coryx contains the following ingredients;
Aspirin 600mg: Aspirin is known as a salicylate and a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It was the first of this class of drug to be discovered. Aspirin contains salicylate, a compound found in plants such as the willow tree and myrtle. Its use was first recorded around 4,000 years ago. Hippocrates used willow bark for relieving pain and fevers, and some people still use willow bark as a natural remedy for headaches and minor pain.
Vitamin C 330mg: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can strengthen your body’s natural defenses. Antioxidants are molecules that boost the immune system. They do so by protecting cells from harmful molecules called free radicals. When free radicals accumulate, they can promote a state known as oxidative stress, which has been linked to many chronic diseases. Studies show that consuming more vitamin C can increase your blood antioxidant levels by up to 30%. This helps the body’s natural defenses fight inflammation.
Chlorpheniramine 4mg: Chlorphenamine, also known as chlorpheniramine, is an antihistamine used to treat the symptoms of allergic conditions such as allergic rhinitis. It is taken by mouth. The medication takes effect within 6 hours and lasts for about a day. Common side effects include sleepiness, restlessness, and weakness.
Pseudoephedrine Hcl 50mg: Pseudoephedrine is a sympathomimetic drug of the phenethylamine and amphetamine chemical classes. It may be used as a nasal/sinus decongestant, as a stimulant, or as a wakefulness-promoting agent in higher doses.
How does Coryx Tablet work?
Coryx works by suppressing the production of prostaglandins; both providing ascorbic acid and reversibly oxidizing to dehydroascorbic acid in the body; blocking H1-receptor sites on tissues; stimulating the alpha-adrenergic receptors.

What medications can interact with Coryx Tablet?
An interaction may involve one medication making another less effective or the combination being dangerous.
Coryx Tablet can interact with many drugs. Some of these include:
- Anti-inflammatory painkillers: Examples include diclofenac, ibuprofen, and naproxen. Combined with aspirin, these types of drugs can increase the risk of stomach bleeding.
- Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and other antidepressants: Examples include citalopram, fluoxetine, paroxetine, venlafaxine, and sertraline. In combination with aspirin, any of these can increase the risk of bleeding.
- Warfarin: In combination with this blood thinner, aspirin can reduce the drug’s anticoagulant effects and increase the risk of bleeding. There are situations, however, when this combination may be beneficial.
- Methotrexate: In combination with this drug, used in the treatment of cancer and some autoimmune diseases, aspirin can make the drug harder to eliminate, potentially resulting in levels of methotrexate that are toxic.
