Pseudoephedrine Vs Phenylephrine Hcl
Is it safe to take Pseudoephedrine and Phenylephrine HCl simultaneously? The max dose of Pseudoephedrine is not curing my congestion. Thanks.
I took a 24 hour sudafed this afternoon and the only cough syrup I have has 10 mg of phenylephrine hcl in it. Can I take this with sudafed?
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
Tamiflu (oseltamivir): But seriously, just read the label. Dont forget zn tablets. ...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
I took Pseudoephedrine (2 - 30mg pills) and 10 mg Phenylephrine together. I am a 26 year old male, 280 lbs. Should I be concerned?

I took 10mg of phenylephrine a little over an hour ago. It's not helping. Can I take 30mg tablet of pseudoephedrine or do I have to wait a full 4hrs?
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

Yes, at your age: And no cardiac conditions, but not advisable ...Read more
Wrong choice: No clinical difference in the decongestant effect. But the effect is due to vasoconstriction of the blood vessels in sinuses and nose, which is followed by rebound worsening of congestion and systemic side-effects including hyertension, tremors, anxiety, even stroke. For nasal congestion, one should use an inhaled steroid, eg, Flonase (fluticasone nasal) spray; it treats sinuses and nose better. ...Read more
What number of pseudoephedrine HCl does a equate tablet have and how much pseudoephedrine HCl does an iboprufen tablet have?
Possibly none: Ibuprofen does not contain pseudoephedrine HCL (PSE). Equate is the name of a pharmaceutical company brand, and you may have a medication from that brand, Equate, but that’s not the name of the medication itself. What you have may have PSE in it or not - possibly at a dose of 30 mg or 120 mg. The best bet is to take your bottle to a local pharmacy for assistance or read the active ingredient list. ...Read more
