    It did what it was supposed to. the only problem was that it makes my nose so dry that I get constant nose bleeds that last for 30 minutes or longer.

    This is the only medication that works on my sinuses and prevents a cold from turning into an infection. However, I usually need melatonin if I take the recommended 2 in am and 2 in pm.

I usually get somewhat light-headed, minor headaches, and troub ... Show Full Comment

    Wow. I've been having sold/sinus infection for the past three days. Finally I saw the doctor today and he prescribed Musinex D. I took two tablets at 1 pm. It's 2:45 now and I'm feeling much better. Congestion is gone. I can breath easy. Even the head-ache I was having is gone. This works!
