I have SEVERE allergies and an 80% deviated septum that I hope to have surgery on. But with a VERY small nasal passage on one side and SEVERE allergies taking one nasal decongestant doesnt seem to be enough to declog me my head feels like its going to burst from the pressure.
I would not suggest that you take more than one pill at a time unless your doctor oks it. I take a generic actifed that works fairly good. It has the PhentlephrineHCI 10mg. & Chlorpheniarmine maleate 4mg. I have severe allergies, & I take 1 pill every four hours as directed on the box. Here is a # on the box if you have questions 1-800-426-9391. The product is called Allerfed. Please do not start using nasal sprays as they will have a rebound effect & you become addicted to them. Hope this helps you...
