Re: Medicine causing congestion to get worse??

I'm glad to hear that you're not congested anymore but the comments from your doctor don't make any sense at all. What are the allergy sprays he recommended for you?

I guess one possibility is that your symptoms aren't allergy-related and the antihistamines and decongestant were drying you out so much that they were making the problem worse.

You might consider checking with another doctor if the congestion comes back.

One was Rhinocort Aqua and the other was Beconase AQ.

On a weird side note, I woke up this morning with allergies, couldnt stop sneezing with itchy watery eyes. I took ONE Zyrtec tablet. And guess what... my nose is congested again.
