    I usually use Afrin. I used Rexall for the first time today and I ended up having to go to Urgent care. Immediate Migraine. Intense burning throughout sinuses that three hours, three shots and two prescription pills later, still makes it hurt to breathe. Profuse nasal drainage and eye watering. Pressure behind the eyes and at the base of the skull.

It is running all down my throat and making me hurt so bad I want to sniff a cup of water.

    I take the Mucinex version of this medicine. I use it only at night when I have a bad cold and can't breathe out of my nose. It is a life saver in helping me sleep. (Who likes to breathe out of their mouth when they are trying to sleep?) It says to use it for only 3 days but my colds usually last longer than that. Since I only use it once a day I figure 6 days is ok. I also use only one spray ... Show Full Comment
