Call your physician regarding the specific recommendations that you understandably forgot, in the meanwhile, avoid all over the counter prepartions if possible especially ones that contain stimulants (this likely includes all decongestants.) Benedryl is a safe "cold" or sinus medication for you to take (this drug tends to make people drowsy) and it represents a first generation antihistamine; the next generation antihistamines are for the most part safe but your doctor should be recommending a specific one to you if you need it (like allegra or claritin) especially because these are prescription drugs.
Call your doctor this week and write down the medications that are ok and over the counter, and consider taking a prescription antihistamine that might help you to avoid over the counter medications (this is usually the case for allergies, not transient cold symptoms.)
