This is no better than a placebo.

So from the aritcle, this was the answer.

Quote :
"I was director of a drug information center in a hospital at the time, and doctors and patients would call me and ask, 'What is the right dose of phenylephrine?'" Hatton said. "We did not have an answer, but we determined through scientific evidence that the 10-milligram dose was insufficient."
So just take more lol.

And BTW, I've been taking this for 2-3 seasons now for allergy congestion, I can tell you it works as a temporary relief.

Just get pseudoephedrine over the counter from the Costco or Sam's pharmacy. Very cheap. And the stuff works great.

That was a university social media article which referenced an editorial which referenced a single study conducted in 2015. A systematic review was done in 2016 which consolidated all data from every study conducted to that date. The authors concluded there was a small positive effect in adults with colds who used multiple doses. The report is over 100 pages and is linked below, however here are the ... .

AUTHORS' CONCLUSIONS (Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27748955)
  • We were unable to draw conclusions on the effectiveness of single-dose nasal decongestants due to the limited evidence available. For multiple doses of nasal decongestants, the current evidence suggests that these may have a small positive effect on subjective measures of nasal congestion in adults with the common cold. However, the clinical relevance of this small effect is unknown and there is insufficient good-quality evidence to draw any firm conclusions. Due to the small number of studies that used a topical nasal decongestant, we were also unable to draw conclusions on the effectiveness of oral versus topical decongestants. Nasal decongestants do not seem to increase the risk of adverse events in adults in the short term. The effectiveness and safety of nasal decongestants in children and the clinical relevance of their small effect in adults is yet to be determined.

Wasn't it John Oliver that joked that phenylephrine was "doesntdoshitofen" and that he would rather find a local meth junkie in the back parking lot to buy real pseudoephedrine.
