I have been using extra strength nose drops for years to relieve stopped up nose. Nasal sprays irritate my sinus and I'm having a hard time finding the nose drops these days.
Please tell me you are not using anything like (oh jeez, just had a complete memory block, can't remember the name of it)anyway, like the 12 hour nasal sprays only in drops? These products can cause rebound effects where your nasal passages swell shut so you have to keep using & using them. I got bad hooked on the 12 hour sprays because of a sinus infection along with a cold! I have allergies on top of that. I used them for over 6 months until I mentioned it to my doctor. He told me about the rebound effect & gave me an antibiotic for the infection, with instructions absolutely not to use the sprays or drops! It took awhile of suffering & thank goodness I got out of that cycle. Hope this isn't your case, but if it is, you have to stop using them. Good luck to you.
