    Pseudoephedrine and ephedrine are sympathomimetic agents that stimulate
    alpha- and beta-adrenergic receptors in the sympathetic nervous system,
    causing constriction of smooth muscles and blood vessels and producing
    bronchodilatation. They have central nervous system stimulant activity. Pseudo￾ephedrine is a stereoisomer of ephedrine and it is present as a nasal decon￾gestant in a number of cold and cough preparations, such as Day Nurse.
