Endocrinologist Dr. V. Kumaravel's  Response
Hi: Sneezing and congestion in head and sinuses are commonly due to sinusitis and unlikely due to any of the above medication. Very rarely sneezing can occur due to aspirin, but it will not cause congestion. I feel his problem is nothing related to the drugs.
