Good day I woke up with swollen eyelids nose bridge and forehead. I had sinus last night and took two allergex. Would an antihistamine work better?

In brief: Probably not

Allergex is an antihistamine .
It is chlorpheniramine. If it was an allergic reaction, it should have helped.. If it helped , but only slightly then maybe taking a longer acting antihistamine like (cetirizine or fexofenadine) might help. You should also consider other causes for the swelling is the antihistamines are not helping.
