The best one is Advil Cold and Sinus. It is a miracle drug. You can get it at a pharmacy, however, they sell one packet per month per user, so you need to show your drivers license.

Ofcourse, as always, check with your doctor before you go buy it. It does not require a prescription. Session data

I have chronic allergies and have tried most of the OTC sinus medications, I always return to Zyrtec and http://www.sudafed.com/.  I purchase the sudefed that's now sold behind the pharmacy counters that contains pseudoephedrine, or PSE.  I like the Ayr saline products and use both a neti pot and a nasal irrigator which I've listed below.  Claritin works better for some with allergies, you'll have to try each one to see which is more effective for you.

This is the time of year where sinus issues are the worst.  I highly recommend Sudafed 12 hour for long relief of your symtoms but I also have two other great suggestions that are non-drug remedies.

 NeilMed NasaFlo Neti Pot

No Spill, No Mess, No Burning & No Stinging Relieves Allergies & Sinus Symptoms

NeilMed® NasaFlo™ Neti Pot comes with 50 packets of easy to dispense USP Grade (99.9% Pure) and Preservative Free Sodium Chloride and Sodium Bicarbonate mixture. It is pH balanced & isotonic for maximum comfort. Smooth gravity flow creates no pressure in the nasal passage, ears or sinuses. each packet contains precisely measure mixture to mix with 8 oz (240 mL) of lukewarm distilled water, taking the guesswork out of preparing this solution. This box also contains step by step directions for use and extensive educational material on nasal and sinus disease.


The second is my favorite and works the same way but does not involve mixing. 

Aftin Pure Sea, Hydrating Nasal Mist


Clears & Relieves Nasal Passages 100% Natural-Source Purified Sea Water Non-Medicated
Isotonic

Why sea water?  Why "isotonic"?
Sea water by nature contains salt, or sodium chloride.  Afrin® PureSea™ is isotonic, meaning we reduce the concentration of sodium chloride in the sea water to match the typical level of salts in your won body to avoid discomfort.  At the same time, Afrin® PureSea™ preserves sea water's minerals and trace elements.

Where does the sea water come from?

The sea water is taken from the Bay of Saint-Malo in France.  The tides in the Bay of Saint-Malo are some of the most powerful in the world.  They create currents that renew the composition of sea water, oxygenating it and regenerating its mineral salt content.

How is it purified?
The sea water first undergoes a sterilizing filtration process; then its content is adjusted by electrodialysis; and finally the solution is sterilized and packaged in bottles.  The speed of this unique process eliminates the need for chemical preservatives.

Read the reviews for the Neti pot at this link.  You will get similar results with the Afrin Pure Sea.  It is the same premise, just a different product.  I prefer the Afrin Pure Sea.  You will be able to breath so much better.
