Flonase antihistamine

Common Questions and Answers about Flonase antihistamine

flovent

Is it an antihistamine or decongestant? Either way, it could aggravate PACs or PVCs a little.
I have been on flonase once a day for 1 year, I have gained 25 lbs in that time. My eating habits have not changed and have been an excessive exercise addict my whole life (44). No matter what I do I can not shed the weight, infact if I don't exercise I gain about a pound a week. I am also taking astelin daily.
Smoke in area due to Wye fire. Asthma acting up - trouble breathing. Inhaler, antihistamine, flonase 1st thing in morning. All windows in house open due to heat - some smoke in house - closed up and turned on air conditioner to clear house air. Better.
Controlling the drainage with the Flonase and possibly an antihistamine should help control this.
If a sinus infection persists, the proper treatment is a broad spectrum antibiotic such as Augmentin along with a nasal steroid spray once daily (i.e. Nasonex, Rhinocort, Flonase) and a prescription antihistamine such as Zyrtec or Allegra. In cases where sinus infection persists despite this treatment, one may need to seriously consider the possibility that acid reflux is causing these symptoms and one will need to begin more aggressive treatment for acid reflux.
I called the doctor's office and spoke with the nurse who quickly told me that those were not side effects to Claritin or Flonase. Anyone else experience a reaction to this? I've read on several different websites that those are typical side effects. IM CONFUSED!
Her doctor had her on Claritin-D 24 Hour but then told her that would affect her because her family has a history of high blood pressure. She then placed her on Flonase. Now she had panic attacks and heart palipatations so she stopped taking it. What's the next step and is it true about allergy meds being a concern with high blood pressure candidates? She's healthy now other than the not being able to breathe, coughing, and itchy dry eyes.
If your nose has cleared up from the nasal steroid (flonase) and antihistamine (allegra) but your nose is still running it could still be causing your sore throat. I'd go back and see my doc and ask for additional medicines like a nasal spray antihistamine like astelin or an anticholinergic like atrovent nasal spray. Wheezing and coughing could be an allergic condition of your lungs such as asthma, ask your doctor about that, to see if they hear wheezing when they listen to your lungs.
I have went quite a while without a nose spray or antihistamine being ok. Then i will get stuffy/sinus pressure. My Dr ordered a CT scan a year ago and said i had a deviated septum and some nasal polyps. I generally take Flonase. About a week ago the allergies and sinuses really got a hold of me and i had horrible sinus pressure, felt really spacey, had ear fullness and pain, felt a little off but no ear infection. I got put on a antibiotic. I then just started the Flonase back up.
Fluticasone Prop 50mcg. spray) from Allergist, 2 ea nostril qd. Allergist ordered Astelin, Insurance would not pay. Int Med said to stop Flonase. Flu Shot, 9/09.

nasal washes, nasal steroid spray, decongestant and/or antihistamine, and an antibiotic if the symptoms are due to a bacterial infection. For further information, please read our Sinusitis Medfact at http://www.nationaljewish.org/medfacts/sinus.html.
I have been to two different doctors and they told me its allergies...they didnt run any test. They ave me flonase and a antihistamine, mush to no avail. I have no health insurance...so that is a hindrance in going to the doctor again. Oh yeah, heres the kicker...this all started when I lived in a college dorm that had mold and ran about 90 degrees, which the doctors didnt even seem to listen to. Anyone have anything similar? Because I am afraid I am dying here.
i'm curious if it is ok to use flonase. also, is benadryl ok to use. I just finished using my netti pot for nasal allergies. I'm trying to be careful about drug interaction; I haven't started the boc yet.
I have tried every cortisone cream, every medicated lotion, every non-medicated lotion, Zyrtec, Allegra, Claritin, Flonase, everything. A dermatologist has diagnosed me with dermatographism, but I disagree. The most adverse reaction I've seen from my scratching is that some hives MAY form if I've itched it PROFUSELY for an extended period of time. But they are small and very infrequent and very few.
I noticed you're from Australia, so I don't know what the equivalent medication would be there (I'm in the US), but check with your doctor or pharmacist about a medication similar to Benadryl or other antihistamine type medication. you may also ask about a nasal spray called Flonase and another one called Atrovent Nasal.
-Saw reg doctor, presumed it was a mucus prob in rusts china tube, prescribed Flonase -pressure gradually (over the course of 3 weeks) became infrequent -tinnitus became constant -saw ENT for tinnitus, he saw nothing that would cause any problems, assumed allergy probs, prescribed antihistamine/ decongestant. No change in tinnitus, so I discontinued anti-allergy meds.
Hi, You could take oral antihistamine medications like cetrizine or loratadine and see if it helps with your symptoms. Also take steam inhalation and saline nasal drops several times a day. If your symptoms still persist, you should consult your doctor because then you would need to get certain investigations done and would probably need steroid nasal sprays and a course of antibiotics. Let us know about any other doubts that you have and post us on how you are doing. Regards.
I took a couple inhalations of Flonase and it stuffed me up so much I'm afraid to use it again. I don't know whether to take an antihistamine as I know it thickens but I need to stop the drip. My ENT told me not to take it. My questions are: How long for the oral steroid to help... or won't it? Does the stuffiness from the Flonase go away & should I use it? Should I take antihistamines and Decongestants? Also... I ordered the nasal irrigator...
You should consult your doctor and start appropriate medications including antibiotics, nasal sprays, antihistamine medications and decongestants. You should try some steam inhalation, warm saline gargles and saline nasal drops to help with your symptoms till you see your doctor. Let us know if you need any other information and post us about how you are doing. Regards.
For about a week or two it would stay as is and i would take flonase as recommended by my doctor. A week after that it goes from yellow to green and back and forth than turns florencent yellow than orange because of the blood. This never goes away on its own and is never just a cold. I need an antibiotic every single time to get rid of this. Is this normal. the pain usually is only on the right side, cheekbone and teeth. The last time i had this the antibiotic did nothing for me.
Two surgeries have not been effective for long; neither has treatment with inhaled steroids (Flonase), inhaled antihistamine (Astelin), a leukotriene modulator (Singulair) and a proton inhibitor. A recent sinus scan showed a return of disease (ethmoids completely opaque), which I expect to worsen once the winter viruses set in. Surgery is no longer considered an option; if it gets to that point again, the only treatment will be a course of oral steroids, which provide only temporary relief.
I have started the protocal of flonase, astelin and another one can't remember name that suppose to help stop it.(atacand?) Anyhow they didn't work for me before surgery so I' don't know if they will now I have been using them for a week now and I see no differnce. All I want is to blow the snot out my nose. Help me please with any suggestions!!
get refills on the nasal sprays. i'll bet one was a nasal steroid and the other astelin (azelastine - an antihistamine). sometimes chronic sinusitis takes 3 or more weeks of continuous treatment. did you get continuous treatment?
The ENT guy will only operate if there is obstruction of the osteomeatal complex or if there is a fluid collection that will not drain of if there are polyps, and you have none of these things. Antihistamine, decongestant, flonase, saline irrigation, plus or minus singulair and advair, then most of all you need to find what is causing this airway inflammation, maybe allergy but seldom in adults, more likely an occupational or other exposure to something toxic.
I take "tyelenol Cold" (it does not have epehedrine in it) and my regular "reactine" antihistamine. antihistamines don't work well alone on sinus issues, but taking the cold medicine with it works 100% for me. I took a regular decongestant at my bf's house last weekend and was up all night with heart palpitations and leg cramps... i can't take anything with ephedra, i knew instantly it had ephedra in it..
but I would check with your doctor for a thorough examination. I am on Flonase, a steroidal spray, Astelin, an antihistamine and saline flushes. I flush my sinuses to rid them of the mucous that accumulates in them. I also take allergy medications..Singulair and Claritin which has also helped. Again, I would see your doc about these problems so that you can get the right treatment and finally feel better!
I use a generic flonase and take an over the counter allergy/decongestant type allergy medication and recently switched to Zyrtec D, but none of these products control the middle of the night drainage "attacks". Is there any product that I can take that would dry me up for about 8 hours so I can sleep through the night without choking? I even went to my dentist and got a TAP appliance which opens up my windpipe more, however, this does NOT help because of the sinus problem.
You can try taking a newer generation antihistamine such as Allegra or Zyrtec every day for 3 weeks straight and see if it improves. If it does, you have a good idea of what's going on. Then, you have to figure out what you are allergic to in your environment. If you can't find something obvious such as a cat, dust, a tree near your window etc, then you should get allergy tested (it could be airborne molds/pollens or 100 other things) and have an immunologist take a look in your nose.
A week later they found no improvement, so I continued taking mucinex and started on flonase. The feeling never really went away, though, so in early May I went to an ENT specialist and he said I had an ear blockage. So then I started on a twice daily routine of saline wash and nasonex. I just re-visited the ENT doc last week (mid-June) and he found improvement in my ears, but not 100% yet (he said maybe one more month). So now I'm still doing the saline/nasonex routine and.
You should try steam inhalation, saline nasal drops and oral antihistamine medications like cetrizine, loratadine for your complaints and see if it helps with your symptoms. You should still see your doctor and get a clinical examination for a diagnosis and to evaluate if any investigations are required including blood tests, chest xray and CT scan of the sinuses. Are you allergic to any specific substances or have you had allergic reactions in the past?
