It works. Highly recommend.
Just take a tablet at the first sign of a cold, such as a sore throat. It has saved me so many times from getting a full blown col/flu. If you do get it, it provides excellent relief. It brings welcome relief.

Get the real thing instead.
Caught a bad cold from my little violin student. Hit me hard with sinus. I took the Clarityne D , worked great. But it was my last one. I ran out of it, and asked the chemist fir some. Chemist said to get Sudafed pe instead, saying the stuff that had been working for me was a stimulant and they would not carry it anymore. She Swore this was better. My experience with this Sudafed pe stuff after a few doses: splitting headache, exhaustion (but with restless sleep), waterfall from my nostrils. I’m headed back to a different chemist who won’t sell me snake oil.

Rubbish dont waste money get chemist to advise on best option
This product does nothing, zero..except some side effects which can be more irritating than the actual allergy hay fever. With Melbourne experiencing the worst hayfever season ever dont waste your money on this rubbish. Hasnt done a thing, not even partial relief.
First time user of any medication for a blocked nose. Usually I just put up with it. After 2 nights of no sleep I though sudafed, that's suppose to work. Went to coles shelled out $15 or whatever, went home noticed on box in tiny letters "contains no pseudoefadrine", started thinking I've been ripped off, Popped 'em anyway over the next 6 hours and proved my suspicions. This is rubbish and does absolutely nothing.
Sudafed PE, Pathetic.
Only use the original chemist issued one
I've tried both the PE version and the original. Firstly this PE one that you buy anywhere - useless. May as well take a couple of M&M's and hope for the best! But then there is the original one that you buy from the Chemist and show your ID and they record your purchase on some sort of register. That product is actually great if you have a blocked nose. I recommend it to anyone who does because it works so well for me. It allows me to get a good nights sleep and I think prevents a long term blocked nose becoming a sinus infection.
Sudafed contains PE. PE is short for something, psuedo echo or phenyil ephadrine....your guess... But its not 10% as active as pseudo ephedrine, which is the active ingredient of sudafed original.
I had a major nasal cavity blockage and asked my wife to buy some tried and proven sudafed. The SUDA by the way is a play on the word psuedo, pertaining to the original active ingredient pseudoephedrine. Quick, by the way, this version does not contain! Its now phenyl ephrine. Yes Phenyl. So it should be called FENFED to avoid confusion. Long sto...ry short, it did squat fiddly, beside putting my wife out, emptying her purse of $$ which we work for and wasting my time on a product that has No noticeable effect. Its like buying a plastic toy banana with a Ferrari badge on it. It might be a Ferrari, but its still just a plastic banana. ...if you want something as useless as a toy banana, buy sudafed PE. Otherwise I reecomend the aggravation of handing over your identity card and buying sudafed original with PSUEDO EPHEDRINE. But the originalIt works! ... Not this PE rubbish
Works well!! for Chronic Sinus Allergy Sufferers
I have been suffering chronic sinus and allergy for months, antibiotics was not working - I tried this and got relief in a matter of hours - It relieves inflammation , not only in your head and nose but also in your ears. - That blocked feeling in my ears was simply inflammation as well. Using for 2-3 days works great.
Worked fast clears my ears as well as my nose.
nothing really - sudafed's psuedo version may work quicker but with more side effects - This PE version works fine.
virtually useless since the change in formulation.
Sudafed used to be a trusted reliable product containing psuedoephedrine, unfortunately clandestine drug labs would go pharmacy shopping and buy up big to make speed and exstacy tablets. to combat illegal drug manufacture,the law changed and Sudafed became a prescription only medicine. Sudafed sales dropped and for this reason Sudafed changed its formulation to use Phenylephrine Hydrocloride, to once again become an over the counter medicine.
the color of the pack is pretty
not effective, literally no effect on blocked sinuses does not perform at all. i used a menthol eucalyptus lozenge which cleared my sinuses better....a lollie for crying out loud!!!
DONT WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED!
I've waited some five months now to write a review of a product that was so bad, it would take this title. The title's been here in my head for some time. Though it isn't a particularly awe-inspiring title, I just knew that some product would inevitably come into my life that would be so perplexing and impotent.
I am currently suffering from a big, bad monster of a flu that has robbed me of what could have been 4 glorious days. Spring is just around the corner. Everyone in my life is doing relatively well. Work is busy, but I had 2 of these ...days slated to work from home and I love working from home. I get more done from home. Instead, I've been alternately complaining about my symptoms, sleeping, and hitting F5 on product review pages. It's ridiculous. I desperately wanted this product to work. I shelled out $9.99 at the chemist warehouse for it and wanted relief so badly that I'm shocked that there wasn't even a placebo effect. The sad truth is that Sudafed PE Maximum Strength Nasal Decongestant did not alleviate even one single solitary symptom. The Symptoms Eyes so watery I look like I'm constantly crying, weird tongue film, body aches and energy depletion so severe I spent a full 20 hours in bed getting up only to eat for the first time in 2 days and check the ratings on my last review, chills that compromised my usual 97% typing accuracy, fever that lasted for 2 days, and an overall "look" of death that caused everyone in my house to look at me and simply shudder at least two or three times.
