Cold & blocked ears: Should I continue to take Sudafed (60mg) if no improvement after 24 hours? if no nasal congestion present? if no expectorant?

In brief: Depends

If this congestion is from a cold, I would expect the congestion to go away in no more than 10 days .
Thus you may try stopping the Sudafed.Your question is unclear in that I am uncertain whether the sudafed failed to work after 24 hours however.
