Breaks Attacks of Cold & 'Flu!
Coriforte Capsules provide a direct counter-attack to severe colds and influenza. To the recognized anti-histaminic effect of Chlor-Trimeton, and the anti-pyretic, analgesic effect of A.P.C., has been added Vitamin C and the stimulant, methamphetamine, which counteracts any drowsiness which may occur.
With the use of Coriforte Capsules, post influenza depression is not seen. This is particularly useful after attacks of "Asiatic 'flu".
