Use normal saline: Nasal congestion alone can be managed with nasal saline drops. Use 2-5 drops in each side of nose as often as necessary. Monitor for signs if worsening such as poor feeding, fast or heavy breathing, and fever as this might indicate need for further evaluation by your pediatrician.

Is it a bad idea to drink alcohol if i'm taking asacol, (mesalamine) mercaptopurine, prednisone, and celexa?

Yes: Alcohol depletes serotonin making Celexa (citalopram) not work. Alcohol causes diahrea and irritates your bowel (you apparently have inflamatory bowel problem from your meds) do you think a few hours of alcohol high is worth days to weeks of agony from ibs and depression?
