hi doc im on again , last time it said you were online , so not sure if its working right , anyhow im here again

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Hi Peter--just would rather talk to you than just leave you and answer. So it could be the sinuses, ear and Actifed that's making you feel bad?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

thanks doc thats ok, yea doc it is i havent took the actifed since 9 am and its nearly 9pm now and im alot more with it, nausea is gone dizzyness and dopyness and i can feel the anti d effect, a little my ear is still blocked and stuffy nose but it seems to be bit better than it was, do you think it will clear up on its own doc as i dont think i can take anything for it now, other than maybe a nasel spray, it interacts with the meds too much, i will continue on at this dose and report back to you in a few days we will have a good idea if its the amt for me then , but im doing ok on it so far , no where near the unendurable that it has been at times before

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Peter for now I think you should lay off the Actifed and nasal sprays and let this resolve on it's own now. I think you're fine on the present dosage and please stick with that for now. Keep in touch friend
