  • I have chronic allergies that I have experienced almost daily for the past three years, though prior to that it was only a seasonal problem that I could stand to deal with for three months of the year
  • I was thankful the headaches went away whenever I used it (and we finished it off in my house before I bought anything else because I hate having twenty different kinds of medications in the house) but it didn't do much for the congestion but losen things up a bit

      Next to childbirth, a toothache and an earache, there is nothing more miserable than sinus and chest congestion, especially if you’re getting them together. I have chronic allergies that I have experienced almost daily for the past three years, though prior to that it was only a seasonal problem that I could stand to deal with for three months of the year. When it became a year-long occurance, however, it became increasingly difficult for me to deal with this, because I felt constantly exhausted and I looked ill almost all the time. There’s nothing like going to work, where you deal with cusotmers all day, and they see you looking ill and hear you all congested, and you have to stop and tell them that it’s only allergies, fifty times a day. People don’t want sick persons around their kids, and it doesn’t matter

      how nice and amicable you are. I’ve tried all kinds of medications to help alleviate the problems, or at least some of the symptoms of the problem, if not the whole problem all together, and one product I’ve tried is the Defensol D Nasal Decongestant Pain Reliever Fever Reducer Antihistamine. It’s quite a mouthful and it’s surprising they can fit the whole name on the box, so I’ll just refer to it as Defensol D from here on out.

      I hadn’t ever tried this product before, when I first picked it up two years ago, but it gave a long list of allergy and cold-related symptoms it’s supposed to treat, the big ones being congestion and pain due to congestion. I’ve had my sinus cavities hurt so bad that it was actually painful to the touch before, so if I can find something to ...


      • relieve that, then at least it’s better than nothing, and will make the allergies a little more bareable.

        It took a while for the medication to start working, almost an hour if not maybe even a little longer than that. And once I felt it start to work I thought, oh this is a great product, only… it didn’t keep working. I mean, I felt the first effects of it and my sinus cavaties start to release some of that pressure, and I was able to breathe a little but then, well, that was it. It didn’t do anything else, and I was still mildly congested. I did, however, notice that it treated the sinus headache I was experiencing at the time, which was gone about an hour and a half after taking the medication. That’s a long time to wait for some relief,

        but that’s a pretty typical reaction I have to almost 75 percent of all over-the-counter and prescription medications I’ve ever taken in the past. You can take one to two tablets ever four to six hours, and I was taking two to three every four hours and feeling little difference. Granted, it was SOME relief, and I guess some is better than none, but it wasn’t what I was hoping for. Might work more for those with less severe symptoms, but for me, it hardly touched the problems. I was thankful the headaches went away whenever I used it (and we finished it off in my house before I bought anything else because I hate having twenty different kinds of medications in the house) but it didn’t do much for the congestion but losen things up a bit. Could be better, but not the worst I’ve ever used.
