Care Decongestant Tablets – 12 Tablets

What is Care Decongestant Tablets?

Care Decongestant Tablets are a form of treatment for relieving congestion in the nose and upper chest. These tablets contain the active ingredient pseudoephedrine, which is a decongestant that works to reduce the congestion in the nose by thinning the swollen blood vessels which cause a blocked nose. These tablets can also reduce mucus production which also contributes to a blocked nose.


What is the cause of a blocked nose?

A blocked nose is commonly caused by an infection, such as a cold or the flu, or an allergy. Germs get into the nose and then spread, causing the symptoms associated with the infection. The infection irritates the blood vessels, causing them to swell and cause the blockage. This also stimulates the production of mucus, which can lead to stuffiness and a runny nose. This can also cause a mucus cough too.


Who are these tablets suitable for?

These tablets are suitable to be used by adults and children aged 12 and over. The tablets should not be used by anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the tablets. They should also not be used if any of the following applies:

  • Taking, or taken in the last 14 days, antidepressants known as Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
  • Taking beta-blockers for high blood pressure
  • Have severe kidney problems
  • Have heart disease
  • Circulation problems
  • High blood pressure
  • Is diabetic
  • An overactive thyroid
  • Has glaucoma

If you are using any medication for another condition, then speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using.


Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use these Decongestant Tablets?
