Brief Answer: not effective Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Im not sure why you have been taking these medicines as they are for prevention of asthma. It will not be useful for just a nasal congestion. i would advise not to take any such medication in early pregnancy. Your nasal congestion can be treated with steam inhalation with menthol. Do it thrice a day. In case you dont find relief after 3 days of steam inhalation, then you may need antibiotics. Amoxycillin is safe is pregnancy.
