Re: Need an alternative to Claritin-D
Take your Claritin-D right before you go to sleep, so that you can fall asleep before the decongestant stimulant effect kicks in. Your issue is not with anti-histamine.. but the decongestant as you have found out. All decongestants have this effect. In addition to the Claritin-D you can try saline nasal rinses minimum of four times a day while congested.. and a nasal oil, Ponaris right before you go to bed. Ponaris is over the counter, but you normally have to request that the pharmacist order it.
If you sinusittus mess has converted into a sinus infection you will most likely need anti-biotics to kill it and get rid of it once and for all.
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
