What should I avoid while taking propylhexedrine?

Avoid using propylhexedrine more frequently than once every two hours, or for longer than three days. Overuse has been linked with side effects, such as headaches, high blood pressure, nervousness or rebound congestion. Symptoms of rebound congestion include stuffy nose (rhinitis) and redness or swelling of the nasal mucosa. Avoid sharing your inhaler or letting the tip touch another surface, as this increases the risk of contamination and nasal infection. Avoid taking monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors during propylhexedrine treatment, as they may increase the amount or severity of side effects.
