Cabinet Nasal Decongestant may be a helpful option if you're experiencing symptoms of congestion brought on by allergies, the common cold, or hay fever.

When blood vessels inside your nose expand, they start to swell and cause congestion. Nasal decongestants, like phenylephrine, work by shrinking these blood vessels that are in the nasal passages to relieve symptoms.

Frequently Asked Questions


Cabinet Nasal Decongestant, a FDA-approved generic alternative to Sudafed® PE, is a commonly used over-the-counter (OTC) medicine used to combat sinus congestion and pressure. The active ingredient, phenylephrine, belongs to a group of medications called nasal decongestants. When blood vessels inside your nose expand, they start to swell and cause congestion. Nasal decongestants work by shrinking these blood vessels that are in the nasal passages to relieve symptoms.

Fun fact! Phenylephrine is commonly combined with pain relievers and other medicines for overall cold or flu relief. A great example is Cabinet Daytime Severe Cold & Flu, which contains ingredients that will help relieve aches, pains, congestion, mucus, and cough.

Good to know: Phenylephrine differs from pseudoephedrine, which is the active ingredient in Sudafed®.

Cabinet Nasal Decongestant is a medicine that can help temporarily relieve specific symptoms caused by allergy, hay fever, and the common cold. These specific symptoms include stuffy nose, sinus headaches, and sinus pressure.

If you have been taking the nasal decongestant and your symptoms have not improved after seven days, or you have a fever with your symptoms, stop using the product and consult with your doctor. This may be a sign you have a bacterial infection or other ailment that may need further treatment.

It is also important to stop taking the Cabinet Nasal Decongestant and speak to your doctor if you experience any nervousness, dizziness, or sleeplessness while taking the medicine.

Cabinet Nasal Decongestant is NOT for everyone. It is very important to avoid phenylephrine if you are currently taking a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) or have taken a MAOI in the past two weeks. If you were on a MAOI before, make sure to wait at least two weeks before taking Cabinet Nasal Decongestant. MAOIs (i.e. isocarboxazid, phenelzine, quinidine, rasagiline, selegiline, tranylcypromine) are a group of prescription drugs used to treat depression, psychiatric or emotional conditions, or Parkinson's disease. When phenylephrine is taken with a MAOI, your body may be unable to process the latter correctly. This can cause very serious side effects including: increased blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, hallucinations, and seizures. If you are unsure if your prescription contains a MAOI, make sure to speak to your doctor or pharmacist before taking this medicine.

Please speak with your doctor prior to using Cabinet Nasal Decongestant if you suffer from:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)

  • Irregular heartbeat

  • Difficulty urinating due to an enlarged prostate gland

  • Thyroid disease

  • Diabetes

  • Heart disease

Adults and children over the age of 12 can take one (1) tablet every 4 hours as needed for nasal congestion and associated symptoms. Do not take more than 6 tablets in 24 hours. Cabinet Nasal Decongestant is not currently recommended for children under the age of 12. Please speak to a doctor prior to giving your child this medicine.

This product can be used together with antihistamines, like Cabinet Allergy Relief, for symptoms of congestion caused by allergy, hay fever, and the common cold.

You should not consume more than six (6) tablets of Cabinet Nasal Decongestant within a 24-hour period. In the case of a potential overdose, make sure to contact a Poison Control Center (1-800-222-1222) or seek medical attention immediately.

The effect of Cabinet Nasal Decongestant on your symptoms should be noticeable within 15 to 30 minutes of taking a tablet. The effects from each tablet generally lasts up to four hours. While it may be tempting to take another tablet for more relief, it is important to remember to only take one (1) tablet at a time and not to take more than six (6) tablets in 24 hours!

Research suggests that oral decongestants, like phenylephrine, may not be the safest option during pregnancy. Nasal sprays may be a safer option over tablets when treating congestion.

In contrast, phenylephrine is generally considered safe to take while breastfeeding. Whether you are pregnant or breastfeeding, always check with your health care provider prior to taking Cabinet Nasal Decongestant.

It is recommended to limit or avoid alcohol while you are taking Cabinet Nasal Decongestant. Try to space out the nasal decongestant and alcohol by at least four hours.

In addition to its desired effects, phenylephrine may cause some less desirable side effects. Everyone is different, so some people may experience no side effects at all, others may experience mild side effects, and a small number of people may experience rare or more serious adverse effects.

Some side effects of phenylephrine include: upset stomach, sleeplessness, dizziness, headache, lightheadedness, nervousness and shaking, cold hands or feet, and fast heartbeat. Some patients may experience side effects that are not on this list. Check in with your health care provider or local pharmacist if you have questions or experience concerning side effects.

Always check with your doctor or pharmacist prior to taking Cabinet Nasal Decongestant if you have ever had an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients this product contains.
