How can I know if I have Decongestants?


Decongestants reduce swelling of the mucous membrane in the nose and sinusesassociated with sinusitis by constricting blood vessels and reducing the blood supply to nasal mucous membranes. This reduces nasal congestion, stuffiness, and runny noses.

Unlike oral decongestants, nasal decongestants constrict blood vessels only in the nose and not in other parts of the body. So they rarely cause the side effects that oral decongestants do. Unfortunately, use of nasal decongestants is safe only for a short period of time, because their use can lead to further swelling of the sinus membranes as they wear off, creating more congestion, which in turn requires higher doses of medicine.


They can be taken to ease the symptoms of congestion when you have:
  • Common cold
  • Hay fever, or other allergic reactions, such as to dust mites
  • The flu
  • Sinusitis
  • Trouble breathing.
  • Swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
  • Excessive sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Pressure around head, eyes and face
  • Lack of appetite
  • Low-grade fever
