Discussions that mention allegra

High & Low Blood Pressure board

For sinus problems, my doctor has told me I could take Sudafed for short periods if I need to. (I have been told by both my doctor and a pharmacist that Sudafed-PE is useless.) I had this confirmed by a pharmacist who also said I should be OK for a couple weeks if my blood pressure is under control. I am on dyazide and Norvasc for the high BP.

For the allergy problems that lead to the sinus infections, I take the following:
Allegra, Singulair, Flonase, Astelin and I use a nasal saline wash.

The pharmacist also recommended using Afrin once a day for 3 days as a nasal decongestant. I have only tried this once so I don't know how effective it usually is.

When I have a full blown sinus infection, I also need an antibiotic. Typically I end up on Prednisone once or twice a year also.
