Our bottom line

Sudafed Pe Pressure Pain And Cough (Acetaminophen / Dextromethorphan / Phenylephrine) is good for multiple cold symptoms, but it's more medicine than you need if you only have one symptom.

  • Phenylephrine doesn't last as long as other oral decongestants like pseudoephedrine.
  • You shouldn't use it if you have high blood pressure.
