Sudafed Blocked Nose Spray is a non-drowsy spray which offers 10 hours of relief from congestion. By making use of the active ingredient xylometazoline, a kind of decongestant, it is able to ease nose and sinus congestion quickly. 

Once sprayed into the nose, xylometazoline targets the alpha receptors found in the walls of your blood vessels within the nasal passage and sinuses. This makes the blood vessels contract and become narrower, reducing the amount of blood flowing to the area – reducing swelling and congestion. This also helps to alleviate your blocked nose by decreasing mucus production.

Sudafed Blocked Nose Spray will relieve these symptoms within a few minutes and will last for up to 10 hours. Because it works within the nose directly, it provides a local effect, reducing the chance of side effects anywhere else in the body.

You should not use Sudafed Blocked Nose Spray if you are currently taking, or have taken in the last two weeks, any monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). Here is a list of some MAOIs:

  • Anti-Parkinson's mediccations (selegiline,andrasagiline). Combining these drugs could lead to increased blood pressure.

Do not use Sudafed Blocked Nose Spray for more than 7 days in a row. If used excessively, it will become less effective. You may suffer from rebound congestion if you use the medication for too long and then stop.

Sudafed Blocked Nose Spray can be used by anyone over the age of 12. You should spray once in each nostril up to three times a day as needed. Do not use the spray for more than 7 consecutive days.
