What is it? Overview Usage Side Effects and Warnings

What are Decongestants?

Possible side effects of decongestants include:

  • Over-stimulation, such as nervousness and insomnia
  • Raised blood pressure
  • Rebound congestion—If these drugs are used for long periods of time, membranes get used to the effects, so that stopping the medication produces the swelling and congestion that was originally being treated. This is a common problem with nose drops and sprays.
