Decongestants: Depending the type you are taking and your medical history decongestants can be taken safely. They can be taken everyday as long as you follow the recommended dosages and frequencies. If you have hypertension or cardiovascular disease, you should not take decongestants oral ones. Topical sprays should only be used for colds or sinus infections for 2-4 days then stopped.
