Phenylephrine is able to have a vasoconstrictive effect. It quickly eliminates nasal congestion, and also reduces the amount of discharge from it. After taking the pills, phenylephrine activates the alpha-adrenergic receptors of the capillaries and small vessels of the nose, and also narrows the vessels. This effect reduces puffiness and stuffiness.
