As per your complain if you have sinus infection along with cough and cold and you are not getting relief with Coricidin cough and cold that contains Chlorpheniramine and Dextromethorphan, then in that case you should consult your Physician and get evaluated.

As far as taking Naproxen [Aleve] is concerned, it can cause slight rise in blood pressure so it will be better to take it under supervision of your physician. As of now you can take Paracetamol for relief. You might also need a course of antibiotics along with other remedies like:

- Gargle with a warm saline solution that is by mixing 1 teaspoon salt in a glass of water and warm it to make a luke warm solution
- Continue taking Cloricidin
- Chew a Vitamin C pellet daily
- Do steam inhalations
- Avoid spicy and chilled foods
-Sip on warm water throughout the day

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
