No Sudaphed: Afrin will help with nasal congestion, & when used correctly has little systemic effect. The drug alone can only be taken short time or stops working. I suggest U ask physician for prescription of Fluticosone Propionate which sprayed in nostrils & breathed in once daily can help U to take the meds longer. Reasonable to test for flu & take tamiflu if positive. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ASA for other symptoms
