  Sudafed - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sudafed is a brand name and registered trademark for a family of over-the-counter (OTC) decongestants based on pseudoephedrine hydrochloride and manufactured by Pfizer Inc. for sale in the United States and United Kingdom and Australia.
Sudafed PE contains a different decongestant called phenylephrine, in a formulation sold for years in Europe.
Sudafed products which combine the decongestant with other ingredients will be completely converted to phenylephrine later in 2005, though original Sudafed will still be offered.
