I have also incurred a stuffy noe and sometimes runny for the past 2 months! I went down to 4mg. from 5 and then became sick with a sore throat; 2 antibiotics later and a month of being down, I am well, but continue with the stuffy nose. I have had a slight headache in my temples the last 2 days so I am wondering if a flare is in the brewing or just "life". I am not one to get headaches. I have had TA for 2years, started with 50 mg. and now 4 mg. the doctor had me go up to 6 when I was sick for a week, and have been back on 4 mg. for one week. I thank you all for our testimonies, they sure help answer questions when something new arises.
