Doctor :  
Listen to me, the progress of conditions before it solves completely is this way...
Doctor :  
first it is runny nose after you take clarniase, then the congestion goes off and then the blockage happens for two days and gone
Doctor :   Blockage is because of the dehydration and the clarnisase acts like decongestant
User :   ok
Doctor :  
That is why you are asked to take lot of fluids
Doctor :  
to prevent the dehydration
User :   i am taking a lot, like wife makes me water of glass with glucose and little salt
User :   i feel so low blood pressure and my area above my temps feels like my head is under a mechanical device pushing my head inward.
