    so like i'm TOTALLY congested right, and the degongestants aren't cutting it...

    i broke down and got some super-strength nasal spray. this stuff is awesome. it works fast, and it makes your heart kinda race and you feel tweaked out like you just ate some trucker ephedrine ( this is oxymetazoline hydrochloride, with a hit of menthol, baby!)
    apparently my grandfather sorta got addicted to the stuff. funny, but now i can see how that would be the case, as it makes it really easy to breathe.....

    it also says you aren't to use it for more than 3 consecutive days.... damn.....


    how's that for non-4x4 discussion???

    Yeah...use it a little too much and you'll 'need' it just to breathe normally. I once worked with a guy that went through a small bottle of that crap every night...

    Isn't that an amazing feeling?? Like "what was I missing out on now that I can breathe so easy??"

    I got some stuff a couple weeks ago by prescription when I had the flu (I think) called flo-nase, it didn't seem to do anything for me. I think I have chronic sinusitus from my smoking years though.

    It's better than sniffing glue, though! I think...

    That stuff gives me nose bleeds /forums/images/icons/frown.gif. But it does help with a clogged nose!

    I dated a girl that was addicted to the stuff, all day long for four years. It was worse than smoking. She couldn't breath without it.

    Do what I did:

    Have your doctor prescribe FloNase to you. Trust me, the stuff works. You just have to grin and bear the occaisional severe headache and nosebleed.

    I can't use Flonase - the headache is enough to put me on the disabled list for days. Try Rhinocort Acqua - slightly better effects, no headaches, but worse nosebleeds and possible moodswings due to a higher steroid content.

    That is the stuff I use. I haven't had any of the moodyness, or nosebleeds from it. (knocks on wood) It works real well too.

    Flo-nase takes about 2-3 weeks sometimes for it to work and kick in fully. It works well and isn't like the over the counter stuff that can get you addicted and higher then a kite....
