How do Pseudoephedrine works?

This drug acts on the adrenergic receptor system and works by causing the blood vessels to become narrow, thus minimising the swelling and congestion. This vasoconstriction occurs because of the α-adrenergic receptor response. These receptors are found on the muscles which line the walls of the blood vessels. Because of this constricted blood vessels, less fluid leaves the blood vessels and enter the nose that leads to the reduction of the inflammation of the nasal membranes, causing lesser production of mucous.

When the β2-adrenergic receptors get activated, there is a relaxation fo the smoother bronchial muscles, resulting in bronchial dilation, which decreases congestion as well as the problem in breathing.
