Phenylephrine Hydrocloride

Were you looking for information about Phenylephrine? Phenylephrine hydrocloride is a common misspelling of phenylephrine hydrochloride.
 
Phenylephrine hydrochloride is one of three types of phenylephrine used to treat sinus and nasal congestion. This non-prescription medication works by stimulating certain receptors known as alpha-adrenergic receptors. In the lining of the nose and sinuses, this action causes the blood vessels to constrict, allowing less fluid to leave the blood vessels and decreasing inflammation. Although most people tolerate it well, it is not suitable for everyone. Before using this medication, make sure to tell your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you may have and any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
