Sinus and ear problems

I have been taking Sudafed and Mucinex for years to deal with sinus and ear problems that started in 2003 after my office suffered a flood.  I believe our office was contaminated with mold (water sat in the elevator shaft for two weeks!) and that started the whole thing.

Anyway, I found a homeopathic herbal remedy on Lucky Vitamin that is working for me!!  I have stopped taking Sudafed altogether (except when I ran out of the other stuff briefly) and only take Mucinex once or twice a week.  I am so happy about this I can't tell you.  I also have started sleeping much better (I did not realize how much the Sudafed was affecting my sleep!).  I've been taking this for 3 or 4 weeks now. 

I had been taking Allegra D (just because it's easier getting Sudafed that way - it's hard to find real Sudafed around here because it's always sold out) and the new product is definitely cheaper than the Allegra D.  I hope I don't have to take it forever. 

The product I've been taking is Clear Sinus & Ear by Clear Products. So far Lucky Vitamin has the best price I've found for it ($8.65):

  1. I have to smuggle Mucinex-D into Australia-- well they let you bring it in, but smuggling sounded more fun. They don't have it or an equivalent here!
    I used to take Zyrtec everyday, and since moving to Australia a year ago my allergies disappeared-- UNTIL a few weeks ago-- they're back with a vengence and I am so sad about that.

    Now cause I let it spiral out of control-- I have pneumonia! This sucks.
    Found you thru my cousin's blog... The girl who wished she was Australian--
    I'm actually the girl who's almost Australian.

  2. Thanks for stopping by - I hope you are feeling better soon!! I actually did get pneumonia the first year this all started - ugh. And my doctor only x-rayed me because my husband insisted my symptoms indicated pneumonia - she didn't think I had it and just did it to humor me!

    I knew you were Dina's cousin and have just started following your blog as well :). It's nice to "meet" you!
