    Good morning all:

    Hopefully I will find a solution to this bothersome problem. I have sinus headaches during humid times and when my hormones shift, however I am trying to stay away from pseudophedrine products because I have noticed how much they affect my sleep. I used to use only OTC meds and they worked however, most have pseudo (stimulant) or dextramathorpahane which creates drowsiness(don't need to feel any more tired).
    Has anyone found a sinus med without products such as these that help with the headache but don;t have either the sedating effects or a stimulanting effects that interfere with level IV sleep? I really don't think I need a prescription med at this point. Thanks for any info, it will be greatly appreciated.

    Hey there.

    The advil seems to balance out the psuedoepedrine and not make me tired or wakeful or feeling goofy.

    But one shouldn't take advil a lot unless you have to. Heavy on the liver.

    Best, Aeryn

    Works wonders for me.....also I have taken Vioxx for menstrual cramps and headaches. Vioxx did not help with my Fibro pain but really helped with my cramps and headaches. Hope you get some relief...Love Hippen
