I use a menthol inhaler and tylenol.  Sudafed does have a stimulant effect but it sure works....but not good for people who already are anxious or having palpitations, etc.

Also, mucinex is great for thinning out mucus.  It also has a secret side effect of relaxing muscles, so that could be nice!  It is a very nice medication and really works.  Mucinex.  Or any generic guaifenesin.  I've taken it for years with NO problems.

I read with interest all the responses , hoping to see my situation but it did not come up ..
In this withdrawal , I have been suffering with my sinus  and the inside of my nose feeling sore and painful , and smelling bad odors that do not exist ..
My sinus causes my breathing to shut down , and anxiety to start building up ..  :'(
It is a vicious cycle , that cycles in and out.
There are no headaches or migraines .. I wonder if anyone here has suffered this ,
 and what was done to get some relief .
Thank you for any help .. Wishing everyone healing thoughts ..

YES!, big sinus troubles with kl w/d!
During taper cycles my right side sinus closes at night. Struggle to breath,waking in a.m. after my lungs stop working..panicking I have been able to restart my lungs on occasion but usually I cant,then twist like a pretzel-black out and have a grand-mal seizure.
Took a higher dose of klonopin one night and my nose was clear all night!!! No congestion at all.

Started taper and having breathing issues followed by seizures for over 3 years now..not quite dead yet.

saline nasal rinses using a neti pot and keeping vitamin D levels up.

When I have really wretched congestion, I do jus take sudafed (the real stuff you have to get behind the counter, not the new off-the-shelf stuff with Phenylepherine in it instead of pseudoephedrine. Pseudoephedrine really works, phenylepherine is "worthless" according to my pharmacist).

Yeah [...],I went to the pharmacy the other day for some Sudafed,tried to buy 2 boxes and left empty-handed because the assistant thought that was suspicious.Now Ive seen Breaking Bad so I know why Sudo is controlled but Jesus,I'm in the UK where there's very little to no M-amphetamine problem.Anyway I digress lol,so I went to my doc and he prescribed me 100 Galpseud which are just pure S-ephedrine.Ive been taking them for a couple of days and they clear any runny nose up but the sinus pressure thing is just as horrible.
Ive had this for many years but since 8 months ago when I quit Valium its been 10 times worse.I wonder if the Benzos caused the problem in the 1st place.Sometimes I even wonder whether its my sinuses at all and maybe its just really bad pressure from tensing my neck muscles all the time because of W/d.All I know is its my very worst symptom by far.I don't know what to do about it any more.Anyone else got any more decent advice??

I have been dealing with this for a few weeks and it is driving me nuts.  Every evening my sinuses slam shut and I can barely breath.  No real mucous, just inflammed.  I do assess moldy buildings frequently so I know that has something to do with it but this is different.  I use afrin when I must open up a nostril.  I also use a neti pot but it doesn't seem to do much.

Today I went with some stand by stuff.  First a product called sinus buster.  It has capsaicin so it hurts like hell for a few seconds but it really opens it up.  The next is boiling water with Vicks in it.  If anyone else has ideas keep em coming!
