It's good to hear from you again. I'm glad that you found something that helps to relieve your symptoms. Sometimes, certain antihistamines or decongestants help with the symptoms. I'm not exactly sure what is in the Aleve cold/sinus tablets but some drugs that have anticholinergic properties do seem to help some of us. That would probably be whatever antihistamine is in it. If there is also a decongestant in it, this might have a stimulant type effect which might also be helpful in getting your eyes open.
Hey, whatever works.
I take Benadryl which helps to relieve my symptoms. Or I did. I just got my prescription in for Parsitan (which has anticholinergic properties) and started it this morning. I'll have to let everyone know how it does. It is too soon to tell if it is going to help yet or not. I haven't noticed any change in symptoms this morning. Things were better yesterday than they have been today.
Keep in touch with us, Rosemary and let us know how you do.
Oh, did you ever get in touch with the Blepharospasm foundation for their packet of information or list of doctors? I remember that you were looking for a new doctor.
