It turns out that your morning cup of java can indeed affect your flatulence levels. The high acidity and caffeine content in coffee stimulate the production of stomach acid, which can cause bloating and gas.

Can azelastine cause rebound congestion?

I recently came across the topic of whether azelastine, a popular nasal spray, can cause rebound congestion. After doing some research, I found out that unlike other nasal decongestants, azelastine has a lower risk of causing rebound congestion.
