Feedback:
Overuse of nasal decongestants leads to decreased effectiveness (tolerance), irritation and ischemic changes in the nasal mucosa, and rebound congestion. These effects can be minimized by using small doses only when necessary and for no longer than 3 to 5 days. Phenylephrine will not produce reflex bradycardia, mucosal irritation, or tachycardia.
