  • I can't remember but can you take tylonel sinus meds? I have been pregnant 4 times but I can never remember what meds are okay to take. I had a really bad cough this last go around. Dr told me to take claritan or zertec. Would any of those help til monday?

  • you can flush your nose out 2x a day with saline. i like the simply saline spray, but there are other choices too. it works great for adults and kids too

  • Try a Neti Pot to flush your sinuses... also call your doc's office and see what they suggest. they might call in a script for you since it's the weekend

  • You can apply heat with a moist heating pad to your sinuses. I actually have a rice pack that I heat up and apply to one side of my sinuses (cheek bone area) and then to the other side. The hot, cold, hot, cold... helps to break it up but also the heat helps to sooth the pain.
