Until now, allergy sufferers with blocked noses have had to combine their antihistamine with decongestants such as pseudoephedrine to relieve their sinus congestion. However, because pseudoephedrine is related to adrenaline, it has similar effects – making users susceptible to many possible side effects including nervousness, restlessness, dizziness, difficulty sleeping and increased heart rate. Combining antihistamines with pseudoephedrine in order to alleviate nasal congestion may not be appropriate for some patients - including those suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes, glaucoma and certain other conditions.
Allergy sufferers with blocked noses used to have to choose between congestion and the undesirable effect of pseudoephedrine. Now, with Aerius, there’s relief from allergy symptoms including congestion, without pseudoephedrine or its side effects.
