Frequently Asked Questions


We know how important it is to know what you're putting inside your body. Please visit this link for a PDF of full drug facts for Cabinet Nasal Decongestant.

For those with celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, we know how hard it can be to find safe medications and products you can trust. Cabinet is the first healthcare company to conduct batch-level quality testing through a 3rd party lab for carcinogens, gluten, and purity. This ensures that every batch of medicine that goes to market is high quality and free of harmful ingredients.

Cabinet Nasal Decongestant is certified gluten-free and 100% free from known carcinogens. You can view our 3rd party certificate of analysis at this link.

For the curious consumer: Batch-level testing is not common practice among manufacturers. A great example of the lack of testing in this space is the massive Zanac (randitidine) recall in 2019 and 2020. Manufacturers recalled ranitidine (both brand and generic) after a cancer-causing chemical called N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) was discovered in every medicine lot.

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.

    Worked great

    Gave this pill to my husband when he was congested and he asked me if I was sure that tiny pill would do anything? I said trust me. He actually later asked me what I gave him because he said it worked. :)
