If you are suffering with cold and flu symptoms, allergies or sinus related pain and congestion, Sinutab and Sudafed are both effective treatments. Sinutab and Sudafed are both used to treat congestion and provide relief from headaches and aches and pains but which is better for you?

How do they work?

Sinutab and Sudafed both contain the active ingredient Paracetamol (Sinutab contains 500 mg Paracetamol and 30 mg Pseudoephedrine hydrochloride per tablet while Sudafed contains

Pseudoephedrine hydrochloride 60 mg per tablet) and this provides quick relief from pain and fever symptoms. The second key ingredient is Pseudoephedrine which acts as a decongestant. This causes the blood vessels in the nasal passages to contract and reduces the feeling of congestion.
