It helps to reduce swelling in your nasal passages, opening up your airways so you can breathe easy.

 

Found in brand name treatments like Sudafed and Benylin, pseudoephedrine could be the difference between a sniffly, blocked nose, and breathing freely the next time you catch a cold.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I use phenylephrine or pseudoephedrine?

Phenylephrine and pseudoephedrine are both decongestants and work similarly, so we wouldn’t advise using them both at the same time.

So, how do you know which to pick? We would recommend speaking with your pharmacist and asking for their opinion.

They’ll be able to assess your condition and any potential issues that could make one medication a better fit for you than the other.

Does pseudoephedrine hydrochloride have side effects?

Like any medication, medicines that contain pseudoephedrine can have side effects. Some of the most common side effects of pseudoephedrine include:

 

  • Allergic reactions
  • Hallucinations
  • Some men may have difficulty passing water, especially if they already have prostate problems
  • Restlessness, trouble sleeping, nightmares
  • Heart palpitations, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure

 

For a full list of the possible side effects of your own medication, read the patient information leaflet that comes with the product thoroughly.

 

If you experience any side effects while using this product, stop use and speak to your doctor or pharmacist if necessary.

Can I take pseudoephedrine and phenylephrine hydrochloride together?

Pseudoephedrine and phenylephrine hydrochloride are very similar decongestants, which means they are usually not suitable to use together.

If you’re using one decongestant and feel that it isn’t working as well as you would like, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking anything else.

They'll be able to assess your current medication and recommend one that may be more suitable for you, which could include pseudoephedrine or phenylephrine, depending on your circumstances.

Can children take pseudoephedrine?

Some medicines which contain pseudoephedrine can be taken by children over the age of 6, such as Sudafed Decongestant Liquid.

 

However, every medication can have different age restrictions, especially those where pseudoephedrine is used alongside other active ingredients, so be sure to check that the medicine is right for your child before giving it to them.

 

If you’re unsure about the age limitations on any medication, speak to your doctor or pharmacist before giving the product to your child.
