what can i take for extreme sinus pressure?

i'm getting over the flu (or an extremely horrid cold) anyways my left eye feels like it is about to fall out of the socket the pressure behind it is so bad. so whats something good for sinus pressure? i've been taking tylenol not really helping, mucinex isn't helping w/the sinus pressure either.

  • I take the regular old original Sudafed. The kind you have to ask for behind the pharmacy counter. It's the only thing that relieves the pressure for me.

  • Sudafed, as said above. I have a lot of sinus problems, and I've found also that standing in a shower as hot as you can stand and breathing in the steam gives some relief.

  • Sounds like you have a sinus infection - go see the dr.
