Pseudoephedrine, AND: Momzbma, if you have headaches after air travel, it is possible that you are not equalizing pressure in your sinuses well. Although sometimes Pseudoephedrine or phenylephrine tablets can help with this, i would recommend discussing it with your family doctor and possibly seeing a ear/nose/throat (ENT) physician for further evaluation.
