  • Are you pregnant? If so, the only thing that the doc will recommend is Pseudophedrine. However, if you are just asking generally, tylenol sinus (or an off-brand like walmart or a drug store's brand) works great! I hope you feel better!

  • You might want to try some saline solution spray, too. Keeping your nasal passages moistened will help a lot of sinus problems

  • Drink, drink, drink! The better hydrated you are the quicker you'll get better all the way around. Medicine is great but it'll work 10 times better if you drink extra fluids with it. Good luck!

  • I just got over a sinus infection for about a week of HELL, I didn't go to the doctor I used Sudafed PE, musanex and Saline nose spray. It work like a dream once I used the three together, I was starting to feel better within 2 days.
