Brief Answer: You have common cold-induced sinusitis problem Detailed Answer: Hi Ms. XXXXXXX Thanks for your query. You are apparently suffering from common cold-induced Sinus infection, which is causing all problems. History of long-standing, frequent attacks of common cold and similar symptoms, suggests nasal allergy with Chronic sinus problem and the treatment for this is entirely different. Instead of Ranidom and Nicip, take Levoceterizine, Montelukast, xylometazoline nasal drops (nasal decongestants), fluticasone nasal drops/spray and steam inhalation through nose. Consult your doctor who will prescribe the advised drugs in appropriate doses. This website strictly prohibits prescription by Brand names and the dose. Hope I have addressed to your concerns to your complete satisfaction and you find my response helpful and informative. I will be happy to answer further queries, if any. Fond regards and have a nice day, Col (Dr.) Rakesh Karanwal
