If you have already done this, then it is time to see your doctor, possibly referral to allergist or ENT depends on what the problem is. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There are prescription medications - xyzal, singulair, xopenex, (levalbuterol) Flonase and more. Ultimately - make sure you speak with your physician about this, since the medications you have tried so far are not providing relief for you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it safe to take nighttime sinus congestion medicine containing acetaminophen, chlorpheniramin maleate, and phenylephrine with delsym (dextromethorphan)?
No. IUI is better: It has been thought that it may thin the cervical mucus but there is no scientific evidence that it helps increase fertility. Cervical mucus problems are a rare cause of not getting pregnant (unless taking clomid, (clomiphene) or some women with previous leep or cone biopsy of the cervix). Intrauterine insemination (iui) is a good option. See a fertility specialist (rei) if trying to conceive without success. ...Read more
