Product Description

What Sudafed Sinus Pressure & Pain 200mg/ 30mg Tablets is and what it is used for

Sudafed Sinus Pressure & Pain 200mg/30mg Tablets contains two active substances: ibuprofen and pseudoephedrine hydrochloride. Ibuprofen belongs to a group of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). NSAIDs provide relief by reducing pain and high temperature. Pseudoephedrine hydrochloride belongs to a group of active substances called vasoconstrictors which act on the blood vessels in the nose to relieve nasal congestion. Sudafed Sinus Pressure & Pain 200mg/30mg Tablets is used for the symptomatic treatment of nasal congestion in head colds together with headache and/or fever, in adults and adolescents aged 15 years and older. You should only take this combination product if you have a blocked nose with headache or fever. If you have only one of these symptoms you should talk to your pharmacist or doctor about using either ibuprofen or pseudoephedrine by itself. You must talk to a doctor if symptoms worsen, or if this medicine is required for more than 4 days (adults) or 3 days (adolescents), respectively.
