I just started using Rapaflo and my nose is almost completely closed off. I can't sleep. Does this side effect wear off after a few days

Yes--suddenly very soon after taking rapaflo in the evening my nose becomes very congested and I have trouble breathing and sleeping. I am also severely constipated. Not good!

Most side effects take several weeks to wear off, as your body gets used to a medication. If it's that troublesome that you're losing sleep, you may want to talk to your doctor about something you can use to alleviate this symptom.

You can learn more Rapaflo details here.

Has anyone else experienced this odd side effect?

Yes, I have experienced the same stuffy nose problem too; it seems to happen within an hour of my evening dose. Of course it makes breathing and sleeping quite difficult. The only relief i've received is from nose spray (Neo-Synephrine) which should not be used long term.
