Pseudoephedrine

Pseudoephedrine is an alpha agonist used to treat nasal congestion and sinus pressure. It works by restricting the blood vessels in the nose and sinuses. It doesn't require a prescription, but there are restrictions on its purchase and it is only available at the pharmacy counter. Brand name Sudafed is available, and phenylephrine (Sudafed PE) is another over-the-counter alternative with a different active ingredient that has no restrictions. The lowest GoodRx price for the most common version of pseudoephedrine is around $2.99, 56% off the average retail price of $6.93. Compare alpha agonists.

These Drugs Can Mess With Your Potassium

Dr. Sharon Orrange - October 17, 2017

It’s not being overly dramatic to say that abnormal levels of potassium may actually kill you. Serum (bloodstream) potassium is an electrolyte, and imbalances are called hyperkalemia (when too high) and hypokalemia (when too low). Cardiac arrhythmias are a known serious outcome of both hypo- and hyperkalemia, and national statistics indicate that almost half of 1% of emergency department visits and 2% of hospitalizations for high potassium end in death. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange - November 15, 2016

We hear “false positive” as a defense from professional athletes all the time when it comes to drug screens—but unexpected results on drug tests really do happen.

Six Ways to Get Rid of Cough from Post-Nasal Drip

Dr. Sharon Orrange - March 11, 2015

Post-nasal drip has a new name: upper airway cough syndrome  or UACS. If you have a cough that won’t go away, along with nasal congestion, “dripping” mucus down the back of your throat, the sensation that you need to clear your throat, a hoarse voice, or if you wake up in the morning with “gunk” in the back of your throat . . . this may be you.

This very common cause of a cough that won’t go away, upper airway cough syndrome, can be allergic or nonallergic and may be related to a sinusitis. See More

Roni Shye - February 21, 2014

What comes to mind when you think about where to find medications for treating symptoms of a cough, the common cold, allergies, or sinus problems? Most people imagine being able to walk through the aisles of their local pharmacy or grocery store to find cough syrup, nasal decongestants, or cold tabs.

Dr. Sharon Orrange - August 16, 2012

In my primary care practice, many of my female patients worry about taking over the counter medications when they are trying to conceive, afraid they may take something bad before knowing they are pregnant.

So it is important to know: what over-the-counter (OTC) medicines can you take while you are pregnant, or trying to get pregnant?

– Fever

– Cough and cold

– Allergies

– Skin rashes or hives

– Diarrhea or constipation

– Heartburn

Now, there are some grey areas where doctors aren’t sure if a medication is safe or not because that medicine hasn’t been studied well enough in pregnant women. See More
