Is it ok to take phenylephrine for nasal congestion if I had angioplasty surgery before? My blood pressure is normal.

Yes. There should be no issues given your history but I wouldn't rely on this medication by itself to treat chronic congestion. Consider nasal sprays as well if congestion becomes a persistent problem.

I have high blood pressure and currently on meds for it. I want to know what I can take for my nasal congestion? Since the decongestion can raise bp?

Rx nasal sprays. There are two types of rx sprays you can take. Both have very little systemic side effects. Nasal steroids sprays (flonase, rhinocourt, nasonex, (mometasone) veramyst) and also anti-histamine sprays (patanase, astepro, etc) ask your primary md, allergist, or ENT which is best for you. But do you need an rx for them. Read more...

I have been taking phenylephrine+caffeine+paracetamol since 3 days but it is not helping my nasal congestion. Please guide.?

Depends on the cause. Caffeine and paracetamol are not likely to help with congestion for whatever the reason. Phenylephrine can dry you up, but it may not completely do the trick. If you have a cold, sometimes you just have to let it run its course medication may help a little, but medicine has not yet advanced to the point of being able to outwit a good, strong virus. 3 days is not very long.
