I hear your pain. I haven't had a cold/sinus problem in over a year and of course I got one yesterday. I asked at the RE office today what I could and couldn't take because I was miserable. She said no Motrin/ibuprofen. All that is allowed is Tylenol. So, I picked up Tylenol sinus today. It really isn't helping:-(
I was told the same thing. So far the only thing that seems to work at all for me is Extra Strength Tylenol Rapid Release Capsules. I swear, they actually work and they work fast!!
