Alcoholic-friendly cold medicine?

Hi, all.  I'm in recovery with 2 years at the end of this month.  I've got a pretty horrible sinus infection right now, but I'm sort of afraid to take anything for it - even over the counter stuff.  I know I can get alcohol-free medicine pretty easily, but I tend to get destroyed by even small doses of anything, even allergy medicine.  I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on something I could take that won't...affect reality?

Thanks.
