Welcome to ATD. Thank you for the query.
I have read your query, reviewed your medications and understand your concern.
As per your clinical history, it appears that you are most probably having residual allergic sinusitis and ear congestion.
Avoid any smoking, allergen, excess salt, tea coffee & stress. They will trigger attack.
For sinus headache and symptomatic treatment,
use saline nasal spray thrice daily,
tab cetirizine 10 mg at night &
You will get relief.
You can discuss this with your treating doctor.
Hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
