A 30-year-old member asked:
does synephrine have the same decongestant effect as neo-synephrine?

No: Synephrine is an amphetamine precursor used for weight loss. Neosynephrine (phenylephrine) (phenylehphrine) constricts blood vessels and is used as a decongestant when applied topically to the nosal mucosa or orally in pharmacologic doses
