Symptoms: sharp ear pain unless taking Tylenol, (acetaminophen) throbbing, slight hearing loss. No fever or drainage. Slight sinus congestion. What could it be?

Eustacean tube dysfx: When the nasal sinuses are congested, it may block the opening of the Eustacean tube, which connects from the back of the nasopharynx to the middle ear and cause pain. At times, fluid may also accumulate. If there is significant pain or hearing loss, see your doctor to evaluate for a middle ear infection.

Can pregnant women take tylenol (acetaminophen) sinus congestion and pain cold pills

Check ingredients: These products contain a cocktail of four or more medications--avoid ibuprofen, Naproxen and Aspirin in pregnancy. Tylenol/acetaminophen is fine, and I don't see harm with Guaifenesin or phenylephrine.

Is it dangerous to mix tylenol (acetaminophen) sinus congestion with beer and ibuprofen?

Is it dangerous to mix tylenol (acetaminophen) sinus congestion with beer and ibuprofen?

Yes: There is no medication that should be mixed with alcohol. The tylenol (acetaminophen) sinus congestion already has Acetaminophen for pain, so adding Ibuprofen to it should be unnecessary. It worries me when people who are sick are concerned about whether they can drink while their sick, and it indicates a focus on alcohol that might mean trouble. Most sick people don't want to drink. ...Read more

I'm getting sick, really bad head congestion. What over the counter cold remedies can I take? I'm on 25mg beta blocker and 120mg of CCB for heart rate.19?

Wow. Complex. TTYD.: You're rather young to be on 2 medications for your heart rate. I suspect you have a predisposition of some sort. Maybe Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome? That needs to be worked out before any advice is given. Use HealthTap Prime or talk to your doctor for advice. Most OTC cough/cold sprays & meds have phenylephrine which can cause your heart to race. Saline nasal sprays are safest. Good luck. ...Read more

Got cold. Sinuses were stuffed, cleared them up. Just ear is stuffed. Taking Afrin (oxymetazoline). Had slight fever but gone now. Ear infection? Or sinus congestion?
