Brief Answer:
Sudafed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

If you are sure about SUDAFED, I am ok suggesting dosage. But 'PO' would not be imprinted on SUDAFED, it is PE (Phenylephrine).

We suggest one tablet thrice a day for nasal congestion and throat pain. You can add ADVIL along with SUDAFED for throat pain for better relief. It takes care of ear pain and congestion as well.

I suggest reconfirm if you are holding Sudafed.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care,
Dr. Suma Parinam
