Pseudoephe: Insomnia is a common side effect from pseudoephedrine and I have not recommended it use for at least a decade. Be sure to aim the Flonase towards the sides of the nose and not in the center and see if this works better. If not, time to see a doctor to see if you may have a sinus infection. ...Read more

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
Can I take the pseudoephedrine that is behind the pharmacy counter, or is that too strong of a dose?
Yes: Most pharmacies in most states now keep products containing Pseudoephedrine behind the counter but it is still an over the counter medication that does not require a prescription.

Is there a difference between ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) and pseudoephedrine (ephedrine sulfate)?
Different drugs: They are chemically related, but Pseudoephedrine is safer, has fewer side effects (elevated blood pressure, pulse, increased anxiety etc.) and for the most part, pseudoephredrine and phenylephrine have replaced Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) in most cold medicines. Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) is still around, used in lots of chinese herbal remedies and weight loss drugs. I do not recommend Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) for any of my patients. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What's the difference between ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) and pseudoephedrine (ephedrine sulfate)?
Thoughts? Could pseudoephedrine mixed with household items and shaken in a bottle cure my constipation?
STOP NOW: If you have constipation, the best first steps are increasing your intake of high-fiber foods and drinking plenty of water. This will get your GI tract back in motion in most cases. If not, you should be seen by your pcp for evaluation of chronic constipation. You may have a special condition of your bowel which needs a specific diet or medication. Please do not use household chemicals. ...Read more
