difference between 'sanguinaria canadensis' and 'sanguinariana nitrica'

Would someone explain me the difference between 'SANGUINARIA CANADENSIS' and 'SANGUINARIANA NITRICA'. I was advised by a doctor to use 'SANGUINARIA 6' for nose block. Which among these two medicines is meant for me?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
They mean for you to take Sanguinariana canadensis. This is the remedy we know simply as Sanguinariana.

The prescription was meant to remove the nasal congestion and blocking. I am still a bit confused since some people told me that it is 'Sanguinarina Nitrica' that I should take and some others say 'Sanguinaria Canadensis' But in the prescription it's only mentioned as 'Sangunaria 6' Are both these medicines meant for nasal congestion and blocking?
