Can't shake this cold

I've had a cold since last week and I can't shake the sinus pressure, plugged ears or stuffed nose. I tried taking Sudafed, but it just made my heart race faster, so I'm afraid to try any other cold medicine. I've been doing a nasal rinse several times a day and tried some natural products, which help for a few hours, but my head just gets stuffed up again. Any suggestions?

Re: Can't shake this cold

I've had the same for the last few days. I took a "fake" sudafed and it helped without making my heart race more. I got it at Walgreen's off the shelf. Since it doesn't have pseudafedrin (however you spell it), it shouldn't affect you the same. Good luck!
