I woke up with a stuffy nose and couldn’t find my Flonase, maybe because it was cold and I left the fan on. I was coughing too so I inhaled my albuterol as normal and exhaled it through the stufffy side of my nose. Immediately I noticed some clearing of the sinuses and after a 15 minutes breathing through my nose is completely normal. But is this practice safe? I noticed some sounds coming from my skull which sounded almost like nerves firing or bubbles or something but I thought nothing of it because I was falling back asleep and thought I may have been dreaming that part.
Why does exhaling albuterol out of the stuffy side of your nose work and is it a safe practice?

Albuterol is a stimulant which is what is used to fight congestion so it makes perfect sense. I will try it now too lol, good idea. I can't think of a reason it wouldn't be safe...
Ok just did.
Love your sounds you heard. Maybe it was a dream? I didn't know we could hear neurons firing! I'm going to look that up.
At least once, when I've taken a triptan for a migraine, (100 sumatriptan specifically, not with maxalt... ) I heard a LOUD POP in my head right as it forced my vessels to constrict (relax? Maybe can do either... ) and that's when suddenly all the nausea and horrible pain stops. I loved it!
