> Last week I needed to unblock my nasal passages following radical radiation therapy to irradicate cancer from the lower half of my nose. Bought some Nyal nose spray in desparation. 2 squirts in each nostril.

I was taken to hospital by ambulance with, amongst other things, elevated blood pressure and a neckache like I 've never had before.
> I have been on MAOIs for 25 years. First time crisis. Problem now is that I have persisting headaches and neckache with some continuing elavated B.P. some 6 days later and have been unable to work in the interim.

That sounds so horrible! The nose spray must have had pseudophedrine in it as gg suggested. It sounds like you've been very careful if you've never had a crisis in 25 years. Nyal is an Australian brand, isn't it? Do they list the ingredients on the package there or not?

I'm so sorry you're still not feeling well. I've heard of the after-effects lasting a couple of days but not 6. Did they give you anything to help you keep the blood pressure down or anything to take for the continuing pain?

If you are in Australia I'm curious as to how you managed to get an MAOI prescribed. Do you mind if I ask you which one are you taking? I have a friend who lives in Australia who desperately wants to try Parnate but has not been able to get it prescribed. Maybe because you started on it so many years ago...

Sorry for all of the questions. I hope you feel better soon. It is definitely too high a price to have to pay for feeling normal but hopefully you'll never have another one ever again. I hope your nose is better soon too.

Take care,
