This is a note to self: take a decongestant pill an hour before before take-off and landing.
How Stuff Works says it’ll minimize earaches, nausea, and headache. The former has been the cause of some of my worst flying experiences. The latter 2 I’ve got right now. Unpleasant.
Update: My mom said when I was a kid, they’d dose me w/ decongestant 2-3 days before a flight.
