Flonase rebound effect

Common Questions and Answers about Flonase rebound effect


2) Is it OK to stop flonaze suddenly, to see how my allergies are, or will there be a rebound effect? 3) If allergy shots were effective for me in the past, could they not be effective now? 4) Could one or more or the allergy ingredients be working so I should have skin tests to see if I should continue at least some of them? 5) Since I never got up to a full dose, should we try again to work up gradually to it.
The child needs a pulmonary function test to evaluate her lung function and allergy tests to check for any allergies. The over prescribing of Albuterol has a rebound effect and can actually cause wheezing. I do agree that allergies can cause asthma and asthma like symptoms but those should be treated as needed not daily. I would recommend a pediatric pulmonologist or at least a competent pediatrician.
yeah and just like GoingTo MakeIt said the Afrin,4-way nose sprays, etc. will give you a rebound effect and thats why people get addicted to them....like me...everytime I get a cold or allergies. I can not stand having a severely stuffed nose. Oh and yes using O/C saltwater spray helps clear things out up there too. Ive gotten off it many times and I CAN NOT STAND having a stuffy nose at all. Im almost off the afrin now. Yea! Good luck to everyone getiing off the nose spray!
It will lead to increased stuffiness (rebound effect). You can taper yourself off. Start using it one nostril at a time (such as right nostril in the morning, left at night etc) for a few days. Then alternate nostrils once a day for a few days. Then you might be able to stop. This way, you won't be left with a completely blocked nose. You will always have one nostril you can breathe thru. Put your saline spray in the fridge, too.
I was given Prednisone at Urgent Care and i've been gaving a nightmare of s time for a week now. It all started from a simple children's 12 hour alegra. Pollen count was high so I grabbed one with my breakfast bar in car on way to do errands. Mouth got super dry fast and I didnt have water, stopped to get some and felt heart   rate increasing, started feeling tingling in head so pulled into Urgent Care to get checked BP 167/100 and heart rate 120 very high for me.
Yes, I've been told about rebound effect from Afrin-type sprays. My dd gets sinus infections alot. Her wise Pediatrician filled me in on this. I am AMAZED you noted the Echinacea bcz my two daughters are severely, and I mean severely pollen allergic and the one who is also low IgG's in viral components I was going to give some of this to but ck'd with her allergist who said no no no .. it has root of ragweed in it or something like that!!!!!! EEEK!!!!
I don't believe you are actually addicted to the ingredients in the nasal spray as much as you are addicted to what it does. You see, when you use a nasal spray regularly, it causes your nasal passages to open, then a "rebound" effect afterwards. Meaning that the passages close up as soon as it wears off (usually tighter than before). This causes a vicious cycle because you need to keep using it to open them which continually causes the rebound effect.
In addition, many people will also stop breathing once in a while, which creates a vacuum effect in the throat which actively suctions up your stomach juices into your throat and nose. Fourth, try to avoid drinking alcohol close to bedtime. Not only does alcohol irritate the stomach, it also relaxes your throat muscles as you sleep, which aggravates the process described in the previous paragraph.
I started using an over the counter nasal spray like Afrin to open up that side of my nose. These types of sprays have a rebound effect if used for more than a few days. Which means, it will make your nose plug up worse than before and you will be forced to continue to use the spray to stay open.
as if they are taken with any regularity (every night for more than a few weeks)...you will have to contend with rebound insomnia when you stop taking them....which can make your initial sleep problems look like child's play. ANY medication taken for insomnia should be limited to short term courses of 2-3 weeks or less, OR just "as needed" where you're not taking them every single night. Skipping a few nights is a good idea if you feel you will need them longer then a few weeks.
I function okay, but once in a while instead of a euphoric effect, they get me all cranky and angry...and I know that it's just a matter of time before my 2 at a time habit climbs to 3 at a time, then 4, and before I know it, it will be even more out of control than it is already. I want to quit so bad. Yesterday I took my 2 when I woke up, but then I decided that I wasn't going to do this anymore. I didn't take any for the rest of the day.
Mine started about five weeks ago and was diagnosed by my doctor as being a side effect with my blood-pressure medicine. When changing to a different one I found that it didn't go away. (mucus in the throat that I can't clear and a need to cough and try to clear my throat until it get's irritated and sore and I lose my voice if I talk much.
It consisted of around 40 minutes of flashing lights and loss of peripheral vision in my right eye. There was no observable effect in the left eye, only the right. The symptoms cleared up after 40 minutes, and I regained complete vision. Needless to say, being my first experience of temporary vision loss, I saw an opthomologist and he said there was nothing wrong with the eye. Since then, I've had two additional ocular migraines with similar symptoms at about 3 month intervals.
I must emphasize that this pressure is ALWAYS there--I am becoming severly depressed and feel like I have run out of options. CT scan came back perfectly normal. I have tried Rhinocort, Nasarel and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span> for many weeks with no improvement, and have tried Astelin nasal spray and Allegra with no effect.
I too am feeling fullness in the ear, pressure, popping, I went to my doctor and he said it was etd I have been researching this on the net to figure out what everyone else is doing to heal this, it's making me anxious and I can't relax and sleeping very little 3 or 4 hours a day I'm taking a homeopathic decongestants, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span>, I'm going to check out the website the previous person said about food additives see what else I can eliminate from my diet.
The multiple medications he's been on have been a trip in itself...the last one had a side effect of lukemia! (he didn't stay on that one very long..) The common thread I see in all of the posts is eczema and asthma. Do most of you have this?? I don't think my husband does... Any info is appreciated!
The wet fluid sensation I feel in my ear, also irrates and burns somewhat and it seems to be aggravating my throat, and also my upper lung area which also seems to effect my breathing. Sensitive to loud noises, eyes sensitive to light also with vague headaches. My problem also causes memory problems and trouble concentrating, and anxiety. My problem also makes general sinus problems worse cold, allergies etc. Anyhow these are the majority of my symptoms.
This technique will work for almost any infection of the nose, if you‘re willing to take the risk. If an unfortunate side effect should happen to you, well, I am sorry. I am not charging you for this, you are not paying me for it, so don’t sue me. It’s a responsibility that you have to assume. If you expect a risk-free life, with massive compensation should things don’t work out, then don't try this. So, why is this book manuscript free?
I have solaire urticaria, and can not stay outside in the sun for more than a few minutes before the sun exposed skin become totally red, itchy and svollen. I´m from Norway and the doctors here really don´t know much about Xolar. I found some information on internet, and hope I can convince my doctors to give it a try.... I don´t know if it´s a problem, but my IgE levels are normal... Is there anyone out there who has had success with Xolar whiteout having high IgE levels??? Please answer me!!
I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span>, right at the time my symptoms returned. Could allergies have led to a sinus infection? Can the sinus infection cause dizziness and fatigue? Due to the holiday weekend I haven't been able to call my doctor, but after 3 prior visits he's never suggested sinuses to be a cause.
Once I completed the round, the blurred vision, and head pressure came back.. I have been using Alavert D12 and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span> for past week. Just recently, have had vision issues again and dizziness. I cannot even ride in the car, I get like- car sick, too much motion. Then I feel panicky, because my head is not clear and the ENT office states that dizziness is normal. I am now starting to feel pressure on left ear, and I just do not want to have surgery.
Afrin or nasal-saline works well. Rhinocort can cause tissue irritation w/ rebound + cost. Use what seems to wk. for you. Gd-luck.
I pretty much have given up, my dizzies are better because of diretics, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span>, and meclazine, but the distorted sounds, ringing fullness headaches.etc.. are all still there. I wish there was a surgery, but Doc's say won't help. I can't hear regular out of 1 ear anyway, so I'd rather not hear at all. other ear has ringing sometimes, and fullness always, I'm sure it is just a matter of time until it is full blown too. Any suggestions from anyone would be appreciated.
However none of them has been proven effective or without side effect. Lately I started to us SinusWars2. I noticed that my muscus has been getting less and my nostrils are getting clearer. One noticable change is I have much less crust in my middle nostrils where I used to reach to get crust out. I feel much easier to breath when I go for a jogging or swimming. Again I just started to take this sinus remedy and need time to prove its effectiveness. Hope to hear feedback from others.
I've used every method mentioned in this thread with different amounts of success. I now use ibuprofen when I can but it loses effect once you have to take 8 or more. Most other painkillers seem to work, when used in the early stages of the migraine (I don't recommend you take tylenol and drink). Later on it's prescription meds and Head-On. I don't know why but that stuff makes the pain a lot more dulled. Well, thanks guys for posting, my hats off to ya Mark.
So, two weeks of the drops twice a day, then once a day for a week, then every other day for a week, etc. He believes I had a rebound reaction to the steroid and that my ears need more time to fully heal. Just thought I would share that, in case anyone else is having a similar problem.
I hated the meds so I stopped taking them and got rebound-hypothyroidism, now on 50mcg of Eltroxin. Side-effects are more annoying this time around, urgh, so I basically ended up making myself sicker.
I am on a Glaucoma med that has a side effect of controlling tremors. It helps but certainly doesn't make it go away entirely which affects my everyday life since I have to focus on writing slowly in order to have somewhat ledgible handwriting. I am a medical assistant. Last fall I decided I wanted to go through allergy testing since I was also having lots of violent migraines.
