Hi Saralaman,
Thanks for writing your query.
Ventrolin syrup contains Albuterol /Salbutamol which is a bronchodilator. Its usual dose is 2mg three to four times a day.
Relent syrup contains cetrizine and ambroxol. It will be not very useful for blocked nose. Instead you can use antiallergy with decongestant like phenylepherine or pseudoephedrine.
Use normal saline nasal drops instead. They donot have any side effects.
Steam inhalation will also help in clearing the blocked nose.
I hope this is useful to you.

Anti histaminics like cetirizine

Steam Inhalation with salty water.

Having said this you should consult your regular doctor for further evaluation and management.

I hope this helps
