32 weeks pregnant with flu. Doctor prescribed nasonex (mometasone) but it is not working. Can I take dristan instead? It has always worked really well for me.

My sinus problem never persist even after my nasal opetation. I have to rely on oral medication for certain time. What is the best cure?
It depends: From what I gather, you still have sinus problems after sinus surgery. Very broadly, persistent allergies, smoking, possible need for revision surgery, problems with the immune system, ongoing exposure to germs (e.g. Kindergarten teachers), and a tendency for sinus polyps to regrow are possibilities. Rarely is surgery a total "cure, " so it is important to follow up or maybe get a second opinion. ...Read more

Decongestant nasal sprays & nasal wash out with saline may help over time. People did get these & survive before we had antibiotics.
