I have been using sudafed for over 30+ years for nasal congeston cased by chronic, maxillary sinusitis. Back when I was a USAF medic it was a prescription drug. I like the 12 hour version. I have tried the PE, it sucks, is useless.

I have used all types of allergy medicines and always come back to sudafed. I do not like to take meds on a regular basis, but when my head starts to hurt and I become congested, I immediately grab sudafed. And only the one behind the counter Now my boys take it too. during the day and the smallest dose possible. Doc okayed it.

I get frequent sinus infections due to a deviated septum. I use Sudafed to help clear my nose and ears.

I've had really bad sinusitis and allergies throughout most of my live and after two surgeries and numerous antibiotics (worked for some time only) I gave up and went to my local pharmacy. The dose stated on the box didn't help me at all, but when I doubled it, I had side effects similar to the ones described by tango. So I take now double dose in the morning and only one tablet for the night. It seems to be ok for now.

Been taking Sudafed for around 8 yrs now. 2 a day or some times 1 a day. DOC said don't take after 6pm as will keep me awake. He was right. Also I've found that odd the odd instance I've had difficulty keeping an erection if not totally aroused.

The box said to take two sudafed which I did and now I can't sleep. It's making me feel jittery, jumpy, anxious but my sinuses are clear. My heart feels like it's racing too. I also took claritin earlier in the day. This medication is truly another form of speed.

I had severe sinus congestion and it cleared everything right up. The only side effect I had was that I was knocked out for about 12 hours.

nasal congestion improved dramatically after taking this drug. I can breathe again, and my face doesn't hurt

Don't get me wrong, this medication is a blessing for my severe sinus congestion. I'm talking about ears ringing and eyes hurting! Noting else will work, Unfortunately it also raises my BP, I'm only 24...
