Customer Question

Second opinion] My sinuses make my head hurt so bad and it feels so heavy and makes me dizzy. I have to take 60mg of loratadine a day just to get rid of the headaches. If I don't take them the mucus gets so thick in my throat that I actually lose my voice and can't quit coughing.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

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.
