The old sudafed is supposed to be ok - the sudoephedrin - the one that is behind the counter now.

here is a website that will give you some more insight

I try to avoid anything unless I am dying, but I turned to sudafed last week when I couldn't sleep.

I second what Ami said... I try not to take anything unless I can't take it anymore. I caved and took some tylenol when I was about 4 weeks bc I had a horrible migraine that would just not go away.

You could try the shower trick too.. where you turn the shower on as hot as you can get it and let it steam up the bathroom and hang out in there!

You can take Tylenol Cold, too, if you think it'd help with your symptoms. Hope you feel better soon!
