Fruss, I use otrivin . I don't get blocked up every night. Usually for a few days then it stops. I don't think u are supposed to use nose drops for more than 2 wks at a time. I have used dime tap nose drops too. Both work well.   


 [...], that bad smell thing happened to a friend of mine when she went on fentanyl patches. She said she could smell a foul dead body smell!   Now she gets an alternating smell, a lovely sweet fresh smell! It must affect that part of the brain.  It is common I have been told with certain drugs.

 [...],

i have had that weird foul and other odor's smell's a fwe times. i think it was coming directly from my brain when a certain pressure was in a certain place. all of a sudden i could smell certain things that were obviously not in my immediate surrounding as if it were right in my nostrils and mouth. it was bizarre. i smelled things like fire, carpet fibers, certain laudry soaps and may other things. it happened about 4-5 times. i really think it was directly from my brain rememering things or it having a certain pressure on it.

I can't find the link for this method but I read it the other day and it seems to work...  In essence, it says that airways and sinuses often close because of too little CO2, quick breathing and mouth breathing.  So, close your mouth, take a breath in and exhale slowly through nose and then pinch it shut and hold your breath.  Nod your head up an down while holding and keep holding until you feel the big urge to inhale.  Inhale slowly and repeat 10 times.  This allows CO2 to build up, which is good, causing airways to dilate.

I have tried it and my sinuses opened up dramatically, but mine seem to be swollen and not pure congestion from mucous.

This is called the buteyko breathing method.
