OTC decongestant

Over-the-counter decongestants such as Sudafed are "good stuff," according to Dr. Lane. The medications work by shrinking blood vessels that cause the nose to be stuffy.

Due to their drying effect, however, Dr. Lane recommends drinking a lot of fluids or using a saline spray when taking decongestants. The drugs—such as Sudafed ($7; harmondiscount.com), Mucinex ($11; harmondiscount.com), and Tylenol Sinus ($6; harmondiscount.com)—can be found in most supermarkets and drugstores.
