Brief Answer:
Advised cetrizine

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
I can understand your concern.

I would suggest you take tablet cetrizine 5 mg instead of Montec LC before bed for 3 days.It is over the counter medicine.
Steam inhalation 3 times a day for 15 minutes.
Nasal decongestant like nasoclear or otrivin nasal saline drops.Instill 2 drops in each nostril for 5-6 times a day.
Drink plenty of warm water.
Avoid exposure to dust,cold air and cold food.
Drink hot beverages like tea and coffee.

Hi, My boyfriend has suffered from nasal problems for about 4 years now. He cant breathe through his nose all throughout the year, it is worse when pollen is around but even when it snows he cant breathe. He has has an allergy test which has come back negative to dust etc.. He cant breathe properly when he eats or sleeps and has now become dependant on using otrivine each night just to get to sleep. Some times his breath smells and he is constantly sniffing. What is the next thing for us to do as he wont visit his gp again. Thanks
