Taper spray: Steady use of nasal decogestants can lead to severe rebound vascular swelling and stuffiness when stopped. This is uncomfortable but will go away over 3 days to 3 weeks on its own. Reducing number of sprays per day every 2-3 days until you are off it can make it easier. Your doctor may help you taper it with nasal steroid spray or oral decongestants, which can reduce rebound stuffiness.

Caution: Break-through bleeding on depoprovera is known to occur as a side effect. It also can be a sign of cervical or ovarian problems, so must be reported to her physician. There is a non-zero risk of pregnancy in your situation, so use barrier protection.

Nervous Cough: Throat clearing is a common nervous tic and throat tightening and difficulty swallowing are often autonomic features of anxiety. Your cough certainly can be associated with anxiety and may improve if you get help with the anxiety or reduce stress.

Thank you very much! And btw, the question mark at the end of what I wrote was in error if that makes any difference.
