OTC meds for Sunuses: Pseduephedrine (Sudafed) is the main decongestant sold OTC, but due to its potential for abuse, it is now stored behind the shelf and u need to ask for it. It can cause increased heart rate and insomnia. u can use nasal sprays to decongest while avoiding the insomnia caused by oral decongestants. Anti allergy meds can be used if they are adding to the congestion otherwise u can skip these

Saline packets + warm water will not only keep the mucosa moist but are also entirely safe and noninvasive.
