Can decongestants make you hyper?

On Glee, the show, the nurse gives the Glee Club kids decongestants or something that are non-drowsy and they get crazily energetic.

Can this happen?

    Yep. Had a piano teacher who used to take Sudafed by the handful. That's why it's difficult to buy OTC decongestants in stores now, especially in any quantity - cookers use them to make meth.

    Stay away from it. Long term use may wreck your sinuses and cause other problems besides.

    Does that include nasal sprays like Nasonex or Flonase? Because i have noticed that when i take that before bed i cannot fall asleep at night, no matter how tired i am.
