OTC medications seem to be effective at relieving congestion, group says
SILVER SPRING, Maryland - Over-the-counter cold medicines made with phenylephrine appear effective for relieving nasal congestion, a U.S. advisory panel said on Friday.
The panel voted 11-1 that available data "is supportive" of the effectiveness of phenylephrine at 10 milligrams, the dose found in many nonprescription cold medicines.
The panel ruled after hearing from researchers who said there was no evidence that 10 milligrams of phenylephrine provided any benefit.
