I had Claritin (loratadine) as part of my sinusitis treatment but it makes me sleepy. Does this helps me to get used to sinusitis or something?

A nasal steroid spray will likely be of more benefit in hastening your recovery and should likely be continued even after the sinusitis has subsided. Consult an allergist if you have access to one. ...Read more

The prudent thing to do is to get back to sea level even though I believe that your symptoms are unlikely to be related to the altitude. Can you possibly be dehydrated? See doctor if problem persists or worsens. ...Read more
