Re: Respitory Virus gave me Anxiety! (long)

the antibiotic is safe -no problems there.

Keep in mind however, that decongestants do make people anxious -they do that with me, especially Sudafed. The active ingrediant is the stuff they make Crystal Meth out of!

Look into getting a sinus irrigation machine, and use it with Breathe Ease XL (Xyletol), and a little Alkalol (mucus solvent). You may also want to try nasal steroids, such as Nasarel to reduce the swelling.

I have awful sinuses, so I can relate. My anxiety has been very bad since developing chronic sinus issues.
