Sinus Medicine Options

HOW MUCINEX® PRODUCTS CAN HELP

When trying to relieve sinus pressure and nasal congestion, look for a decongestant. A decongestant will shrink the mucus membranes that have swollen in your sinuses. This will help the trapped mucus drain out.

 

Some Mucinex® products contain the decongestant pseudoephedrine. Some Mucinex® liquids contain phenylephrine, and Mucinex® nasal sprays contain oxymetazoline.

 

Oxymetazoline is only found in nasal sprays. It’s what is known as a “topical decongestant.” That means it needs to be applied to the affected areas in the nose rather than taken as a pill or liquid.

 

Products containing pseudoephedrine can be found behind your pharmacist’s counter.

 

Use as directed.
