Clear your head with fast-acting, long-lasting Sinutab® Nasal Spray

Blocked nose? Speak to your pharmacist about the Sinutab® solution for you.


When your nose is blocked, pressure starts to build and build making your head feel heavy. 

It can make it hard to think straight; even the simplest things require more effort. 

Sounds like a head cold. 

A blocked nose is therefore the typical symptom of congestion, which can be caused by sinusitis, colds, flu and allergies.

Nasal congestion is a blockage within the nasal passages which results in the pressure build-up and leading to the ‘Heavy Head’ effect. 

Sinutab® Nasal spray is an effective decongestant in that it not only relieves a blocked nose, but also alleviates various other head cold symptoms such as pressure, swelling and pain.

Sinutab® Nasal Spray unblocks your nose fast, relieving the pressure and clearing your head cold within 10 minutes1 and lasts for up to 10 hours2, so you can get back to normal.
