Consequently, can you get rebound congestion from Sudafed?
Oral decongestants do not cause rebound congestion but are not as effective as topical formulations. Agents that combine an oral decongestant, usually pseudoephedrine, with an antihistamine are frequently used for the treatment of acute and chronic rhinitis due to a variety of causes.
Can Sudafed make congestion worse?
Examples of commonly used decongestants include phenylephrine and pseudoephedrine. In addition, using nonprescription decongestant nasal sprays (Afrin, Dristan, others) for more than three or four days can cause even worse nasal congestion once the decongestant wears off (rebound rhinitis).
