Pharmacists can help patients choose cold/allergy products and advise their CVD patients on appropriate alternatives. Nasal decongestants, which belong to the pharmacological class of sympathomimetic amines, are extremely useful as nonprescription medications. Both oral and topical dosage forms are often chosen as therapy in the common cold. However, for these ingredients to be safe for self-medication, patients must be willing and able to read all of the required label information, and also to heed that information.
