Same medicine: These are essentially equivalent. It depends on whether the Pseudoephedrine itself, which is an alkali, was stabilized with hydrochloric or sulfuric acid. Both are quite safe.

Concentration : Starts with solution of Pseudoephedrine then it is either sprayed (as in nostril) or swallowed (as in decongestant). Difference is in concentration of active drug and inert ingredients (used for solubility stability and absorption). Follow your doctors advice for safe usage.
