In brief: Cetirazine

Can try cetirazine (Zyrtec).
Also, nasal rinses like Neti Pot are helpful & you might even try that first. If no better in 1-2 weeks, consider seeing your clinician to be sure nothing more complicated is going on - though that is unlikely unless you have an undying condition like chronic sinusitis, asthma, chronic rhinitis, cystic fibrosis, or an immune deficiency disease or medication, & so on.
