Nasal Decongestant Pseudoephedrine Hci 30 Mg
What does oral decongestant (Pseudoephedrine) actually do? Thin mucus, reduce mucus and/or dry it up? Also why does it help with post-nasal drip?
Need doctor help! Is pseudoephedrine the nasal decongestant drying or will it just reduce the swelling of my sinuses?
Is children's sudafed with just Phenylephrine for nasal decongestant safe for almost 4yr old? I know Phenylephrine is ok for 2+yrs. 33#, dob 9/30/11
Not necessary: Mild upper respiratory infections are self limited illnesses. Decongestants such as phenylephrine only treat the symptoms, not the illness itself and all medications have potential side effects. It's better to use normal saline nasal drops or spray. If fever recurs, lethargy appears, decreased apetite, worsenning cough or other complications, have him seen by a doctor. ...Read more
I take regular sudafed but its only unclogging one nostril. Are there any other nasal decongestants that are non drowsy?
Yes: The best decongestants are inhaled intranasal steroids and they are recommended for allergies. Sudafed is ok short term, the over the counter version "Afrin" can potentially cause rebound increased congestion. If this is chronic congestion, you should probably see a physician for Rx for intranasal steroids. They are non drowsy. ...Read more
I am experiencing severe nasal congestion. I'm very prone to sinus infections. Can I take phenylephrine and pseudoephedrine together to max results?
Better not: Use only one, preferably the pseudo ephedrine, but be cautious when using either if you high blood pressure.

Org for an allergist in your area, meanwhile, saline nasal washes, OTC steroid nasal sprays would help you better with the congestion, good luck ...Read more
Is it o.K. To use a decongestant (like sudafed) and an antihistamine (like coricidin) at the same time? I have had a cold for two weeks with no fever. The last couple of days I have had to blow my nose literally about once every two minutes. I have trie
According: According to drugs. Com, there are no listed interactions between Coricidin and pseudoephendrine. However, some formulations of either one depending on brand can contain acetaminophen. You may want to double check your medications to see if they contain Acetaminophen and the amount so you are not taking too much if you take boths meds together. Also, if it's been 2 weeks and you are not any better, you should consider seeing your doctor to make sure you don't have a sinus infection causing your prolonged symptoms. Good luck! ...Read more
Took a decongestant that included 200 mg ibuprofen and 30 mg pseudoephedrine, can I also take my usual 10 mg ambien (zolpidem)?
Not recommended: Ambien (zolpidem) doesn't cause restful sleep. You can wake up groggy and tired. If you're taking ibuprofen, you must have food in your stomach in order to prevent gastritis or a stomach ache. Also since you're taking pseudoephedrine, that could keep you up all night. That's only indicated for very short term use. So taking Ambien (zolpidem) would not help if you're also taking it all together. ...Read more
20 weeks preg. No sleep x 6 nights, severe nasal congestion. Is sudafed (pseudophedrine) best OTC choice? Safe? Better than sudafed pe (phenylephrine)?
It Depends: Unfortunately, there are mult versions of Nyquil. Some contain the active ingredient in Sudafed (usually actually Sudafed PE which is phenylephrine). Other's do not. When it comes to OTC the counter meds it is as confusing and dangerous as if not more than prescriptions meds. Talk to your doc or pharmacist about the right product (s) for your specific needs and poss interaction with your presc meds ...Read more

Can I take pseudoephedrine hci with lexapro (escitalopram)? And what about phenylephrine? The first one has been my preferred cold med for years.
DrugDrugInteractions: Yes, you can take Pseudoephedrine w/lexapro (http://www. Drugs. Com/interactions-check. Php? Drug_list=1964-0, 1013-565). However, it's always best to tell your prescribing doctor & dispensing pharmacist everything you're taking, whether prescription or otc, so that they can pre-emptively look for drug-drug interactions before prescribing you something. ...Read more

Is it safe to take Pseudoephedrine and Phenylephrine HCl simultaneously? The max dose of Pseudoephedrine is not curing my congestion. Thanks.
Phenylephrine: It is safe to combine phenylephrine with Pseudoephedrine generally if you do not have high blood pressure. But, combining the two may increase your pulse, may create palpitations (sensation of heart flipping), or raise your blood pressure. Insomnia may also be associated with using the two together. They are both stimulants that shrink blood vessels. ...Read more
Steroids: I would recommend either Medrol dose-pak or Prednisone 20 mg. Three times a day for 5 days. Prednisone is the ultimate anti-inflammatory drug and the above 2 methods of administration are safe and should relieve rebound congestion. Obviously, stop taking over the counter nasal sprays. If you have nasal congestion, see an ENT doc or an allergist. ...Read more

Are you doctor?: You took prescribed medication. Was it prescribed to you? What are you trying to treat? My strong advise is not to take medications that were not prescribed to you. What is good for one may be poison for another one. See your doctor and get qualified help. ...Read more
