Any saline nasal spray will work. It's nothing but saline solution you blast up your nose into your sinuses, not really any type of medication. Generic or not, it makes no difference.
Again, drink lots of water, and get up and get moving, use the saline sprays.
I have tried to remain active and that is probably the problem...start to get better and then get sick again by going out with a wet head etc. Of course some say that it is germs..I say old wives tales are right.
Being sick really does stink. I can see it in my eyes..they get bags etc so I know it is there again and the ringing is constant.
