I know the inhaler contains the decongestant levomethamphetamine. does this relieve chest congestion or only nasal?

Congestion: Asthma medication or inhalers are for the lungs. They will do nothing for nasal congestion and this is why not having good medication to cover allergy symptoms will continually trigger the asthma. You need both when you have symptoms in both areas a nasal decongestant for your nose and inhalers for your lungs.
