In brief: Try Sinupret

I have a patient who swears sinupret works wonderfully well for her. It is supposed to be all herbal.
I have tried to look up the ingredients to see if there are known decongestants in them, and i can't find any, but it contains elder, which is traditionally thought to have some benefits for respiratory symptoms. It has a derivative of quercetin in it. I think it would be ok to try it.

In brief: None that work

People with allergic rhinitis should be wary of herbal remedies; they are derived from plants, and the manufacturers don't do any studies to ensure that people with pollen allergies won't react to their supplements.

In brief: Saline rinses

Non drug treatments include saline washes, taking a hot shower, or using stream (carefully!).
Herbal drugs like ephedra work, but are very risky.
