I've had a sinus issue for a month that plugs my right ear.

Customer Question
I've had a sinus...

I've had a sinus issue for a month that plugs my right ear. I've been taking Psuedophedrine but it does help all the time. Can you recommend something else over the counter that might clear up this sinus issue.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Are you having any breathing problems?

No breathing issues through my nasal or mouth. This been going on and off for about a month

I am sorry you have sinus issues

you can use allegra 180mg a day or claritin or zyrtec daily allergy pills

you can also use 25-50mg of benadryl at night time

you should try a steroid nasal spray like Nasocort or Rhinocort which are over teh counter

you can use generic versions of these as well

let me know if you have other questions.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
