Hi Greg,

We do not do scripts online, but there are some other sites I can recommend that do provide prescriptions. Over the counter medications may help. Sudafed was a great start as this will help drain excess mucous from your sinuses and thus prevent it from going into your ears. There are some earache drops you can get without a prescription like Hylands Earache Drops. Please let me know if you would like suggestions on prescription sites or if you have any further questions/comment.

You could also try an antihistamine like Claritin, Zyrtec, Allegra, etc to see if that will help dry up some of the mucus. You can combine Sudafed, an antihistamine and the ear ache drops to help get you through until your cold symptoms resolve. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance! Thanks!
