What do  you take for your sinus pain and pressure? I end up with a headache.  I'm afraid to take Sudafed.

I have to take Zomig which is a prescription medication for migraine headaches. My sinus headaches become migraines if I don't take it. The med gets rid of the sinus headaches for me. I have quite a bit of inflammation and congestion which has gotten a lot worse in benzo withdrawal.

That is what happens to me.  The sinus headaches turn into migraines.  I have to take Maxalt sometimes everyday.  The congestion seems to be getting worse.  Do you have to take it everyday, or can you take it everyday.  I see that it is a triptan drug like Maxalt. You are the first person I have heard say that there sinus headache turns into a migraine.  I was afraid taking the Maxalt so much was giving me a rebound migraine.

I'm taking it about twice a week. I take a twenty-four hour allergy pill almost daily as it cuts down on the headaches. You are also the first person I had heard say that their sinus headaches become migraines. Did you know that there are many types of migraines? Some don't even produce pain.

Which 24 allergy pill do you take?  I was trying to read up on that.  Benzo brain I have forgotten what I read.  Isn't there a migraine of the stomach?

It's called desloratadine. There are others.

I use a nasal spray at night when it's bad. It seems to alleviate headache from sinus.
   It's horrible isn't it.             Hugs [...]

What kind of nasal spray? Saline does nothing for me.

my sinus pain becomes migraine too. now i wonder if this is a benzo related problem when i hear that more than 2 people have the same thing. it does make me hopeful that it is just a benzo related problem because then it has the chance of going away. not that it couldn't go away otherwise.

what works for me is taking a benadryl with excedrin together. sometimes at night if i wake up with headache i will take 1/2 benadryl and 1/2 excedrin so i don't take too much. that combination along with a few sips of orange juice helps me to fall back asleep easier.

[...],

Do you take the Excedrin for migraines?  I have been scared to take that since it has caffeine in it.
