Hello, Clare! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having.

They are the same, Cartia XT is just the name brand.

It seems odd that it would cause congestion headaches which aggravate your other conditions. Are you allergic to any inactive ingredients that you know of? Are you on any other medications?

Have you consulted your doctor?
