    I took 2 cold n flu tablets (like the lemsip ones but the boots type) and I still felt really bunged up so I took a capsule of Sudafed.

    They both contain phenylephrine hydrochloride so altogether thats 22mg of that.

    Have I done something silly?

    You shouldn't do that. Don't do it again. Do you not read the bit on the packet that says "do not take with any other decongestion medicines"???
