i just started AB and am stuffed up. its to early to blame the AB but it looks like it might be the problem.
I have the sinus problem too and I have cut back to one cap a day and it is extremely annoying. I have to use Afrin to workout or sleep and I am weezing all day.
I am not happy about his. Is there any OTC medicine I can take to alleviate these symptoms?
I'm taking it with the primatene tabs and it counters it. So if you are cutting thats an option.
If you look it up in old pharmacology books(as rauwolfia isn't used in it's whole form nowadays) it was used years ago in a med called Raudixen@.This was the powdered whole root of Rauwolfia serpentina and nasal congestion was a "frequent complaint" of using it.
iv been getting bad congestion as well, have to take afrin to go to sleep
I've been using AlphaBurn for 1 1/2 weeks and am congested.
AlphaBurn congested me as well. A decongestant nasal spray (afrin) cleared it right up, but you are not supposed to use afrin long term, so I stopped taking AlphaBurn.
My wife hid all the Afrin so I bought some more and stashed the new Afrin where she cannot find it...
Ephedrine hcl did not help with the nasal congestion but psuedoephdrine works wonders although the 12 hour dose only lasted 7 or 8 hours.
I really like AB but if I keep taking it I will become addicted to Afrin for sleeping...not good.

I have been using Alpha Burn for a few weeks and my sinuses are swollen shut. I have used Afrin a few times which worked like majic but this has piqued my curiousity...
Oxymetazoline (the active in Afrin) is an alpha-1 agonist and partial alpha-2 agonist and Alpha burn is an A2- antagonist. Wouldnt the use of one to counteract the sides of the other kind of be defeating the purpose?? Sort of like taking a Beta blocker with Clen ?
