Pseudoephedrine is a non-prescription medicine approved for relieving nasal congestion due to allergies or the common cold. It can also be used to relieve sinus congestion and pressure. By stimulating alpha-adrenergic receptors in the lining of the nose and sinuses, the medication causes the blood vessels to constrict, allowing less fluid to leave the blood vessels and decreasing inflammation. It is recommended that you talk to your healthcare provider before using this decongestant if you have kidney disease, difficulty passing urine, or glaucoma.
