    sinus congestion with pain

    I am new to the board. I have some medical issues, diabetes,Afib,high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I take meds for all of these. So the stats are fine now. But I am careful of what I take over the counter drugs. I have sinus congestion with pain. My husband bought me Sudafed pe. Is it Safe to take? If not what should I take or do? Thanks Cameorose.

    Re: sinus congestion with pain

    As long as your blood pressure is controlled, a short course of sudafed shouldn't hurt. I certainly wouldn't take it long term. You might also try instead an antihistamine like zyrtec or claritin (not with the D component) if allergies brought this on and a saline sinus spray or rinse to flush out the congestion.
