Description

What are Sudafed Congestion & Headache Day & Night Capsules?

Sudafed Congestion & Headache Day & Night Capsules are an all-day treatment that works to relieve the effects of nasal congestion and a headache. This treatment contains two types of the capsule that help to relieve drowsiness during the day but also help to get a good night’s sleep with the night capsules. The night capsules contain two active ingredients that provide relief, and they are:

  • Paracetamol
  • Phenylephrine

Paracetamol is a painkiller that helps to reduce aches and pains, and can also reduce a fever. Phenylephrine is a decongestant that helps to unblock the nose and help you to breathe easier. The day capsules contain both of those ingredients but also another active ingredient, caffeine. Caffeine is a mild stimulant that helps to reduce drowsiness. Caffeine and paracetamol combined can increase the effectiveness of the painkiller.

 

What causes a headache and nasal congestion?

These two symptoms are usually a sign of an illness, such as a cold or the flu. The symptoms form after germs get into the body, either through the eyes, nose, or mouth. The symptoms are usually only short-term and last for around a week or so.

Who are these Sudafed capsules suitable for?

These capsules are suitable to be used by adults and children aged 16 and over. Do not use if you have or have had any of the following:

  • Severe heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • An overactive thyroid
  • A history of stomach ulcers
  • Antidepressants that are known as Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)

If you are using any medication for another condition, stop using and speak to a doctor or our pharmacist before using.
