As cold and flu season approaches, we want you to have the most accurate information regarding over-the-counter (OTC) remedies. Recently, the FDA reported new data on the OTC sinus decongestant, phenylephrine. The data do not support the use of phenylephrine as an effective nasal decongestant. Instead of phenylephrine, try using OTC sudafed which is more effective, unless you have high blood pressure. Or consider taking an antihistamine like OTC cetirizine or fexofenadine. However if you have problems with urination or dizziness, then these can be problematic, as well. If you ever have any questions about which medicine is right for you, just give us a call. That's why you're in a concierge practice!
