Stomach pain and decongestant can be associated since a decongestant may possibly help relieve stomach pain.
When I have excess mucus that has accumulated in my stomach, I always attempt to expel it by using my neti pot.
If I still feel as though there is a lot of mucus hanging out in my stomach, my last resort is taking a really good decongestant such as Sudafed, which dries up the mucus.
Though I take a natural antihistamine, opc-3, the mucus continues to be produced in my body. The antihistamine only stops the hayfever symptoms. That is why it is so important to expel the mucus by way of the neti pot, a decongestant or a combination of both.
1) Eating spicy foods always seems to help expel mucus.
2) Standing in a steamy bathroom
3) Vicks vapor rub also helps with loosening up mucus
Every decongestant works differently for every individual. It's about choosing what works best for you. The amount of time it takes for it to work also varies. For example: immediately, a couple of hours, etc.
