I have a head cold and have to fly today. I'm taking sudafed

Customer Question

Hi, I have a head cold and have to fly today. I'm taking sudafed but I'm wondering if I could also use Afrin before the flight to make sure my sinuses are clear? Or would be getting too much decongestant?
JA: The Pharmacist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Pharmacist should be aware of?
Customer: Not that I know of.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Pharmacist about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi! Thanks for your patience. Yes, you can use Afrin before the flight while taking Sudafed. These medicines work in a very similar way, so adding the Afrin in as a one time dose will give you the boost in decongestion that you need for the flight. Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions. Thanks!
