How does Sudafed Sinus Pressure & Pain work?
Sudafed Sinus Pressure & Pain Tablets contains two active ingredients, Ibuprofen and Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride. Ibuprofen can relieve mild pain and reduce inflammation and fever. Ibuprofen blocks an enzyme in your body known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX). This enzyme creates prostaglandins when you are injured, causing you feelings of pain, swelling and inflammation. By reducing the production of prostaglandins, their effects are also reduced. Fever is associated with increased prostaglandin levels in the brain; Ibuprofen reduces these levels, lowering your fever.
Pseudoephedrine hydrochloride is a decongestant that works by contracting the blood vessels located in your nasal passage and sinuses, making them narrower. This means less blood will flow into these areas, making you feel less congested and decreasing the rate at which mucus is produced.
