Suggest treatment for nasal congestion and headache

I have been taking Allegra D on a daily basis for a long time due to sinus issues and draining. I took it when it was a prescription. Now I am limited in the amount I can get a year! Really??? Is there a way around this. I m 2 days without it and have terrible congestion and a wicked headache! Will a prescription from my doctor work? You should mention that this is not Free before someone puts all this info in. I will call my own dr. thank you

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Allegra D is a combination of antihistamine and a decongestant. There are other combinations as well if you are not able to get this one eg claritine d, zyrtec d , benadryl can also be combined with a decongestant.

You may or may not need a prescription for these medications, most should be available over the counter.

I hope this helps
