Do you mean phenylepherine? No, phenylepherine is not the same as penicillin.

Phenylephrine is a decongestant that shrinks blood vessels in the nasal passages. Dilated blood vessels can cause nasal congestion (stuffy nose).

Phenylephrine is used to treat nasal congestion and sinus pressure caused by allergies, the common cold, or the flu. Phenylephrine may be used to treat congestion of the tubes that drain fluid from your inner ears, called the eustachian tubes.

Penicillin V is an antibiotic belonging to the penicillin group of drugs. It works by interfering with the formation of the bacteria's cell wall while it is growing, weakening the wall and killing the bacteria.

Penicillin V is used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria, such as ear infections.
