Hello,I am Dr. Aren and i will help with your query.Use f oral and local decongestants should not be done for more than 3 days due to a risk of rebound congestion.Overuse of Afrin may cause tachycardia,palpitations and trembling.There may be blurred vision,dizziness and anxiety.It is prudent to exercise caution while using the decongestants.

Ok, but when I stop my nose seizes up somehow. What do I do.
Doctor: Vakul Aren, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Doing a short brisk walk or some simple exercises will open up the nose easily.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
