Common Questions and Answers about Nasonex and sudafed

nasonex

I also hear my heartbeat in my ear at times, and he's hoping that a month on Nasonex will stop that. If not, he'll do a CT scan and other work to see what's going on. Here's my question: Are any of you using something like Nasonex or Flonase? I do have a headache behind my eyes and feel tired a lot, but I had that before too. Common side effects of Nasonex are fatigue, headaches, a lowered immune system (not good) and others too.
I would ask your physician to prescribe a decongestant and/or another antihistamine, i.e. Sudafed PE and/or Astelin Nasal Spray if the Nasonex isn't working.
I am tired of it and feel that it will eventually diminish my hearing. I am always asking people to repeat. I have been to 2 ENT, and no help. Taken Nasonex, claritin, sudafed but no help. Please advice as to what might help???
Try Sudafed / Sudafed PE for 3 days and see if it helps. I have the exact same issue as you do and the Sudafed is the ONLY medicine that actually helps me.
I don't whether I should Just keep doing the Nasonex and nothing else and wait n see? or if I should take some Sudafed and see what that does. Im not usually a person that takes medicines a lot I usually just like to work out and exercise a lot and let my body take care of it. But I never had tinnitus for 2 months before haha...but I'm just wondering what would be the better alternative do you think?
I've tried nasal irrigation with a Neti pot, Nasonex, Breathe Right strips, Sudafed, and breathing exercises. All have been effective at times, and all have failed me at others. Lately I've noticed a correlation between coffee consumption and bad nights. It may just be that coffee makes me more edgy and likely to be awakened by breathing difficulties, but caffeinated teas don't seem to have that effect.
She is taking no medication except Sudafed, Nasonex, and Patanase for a little congestion that her regular doctor noticed (and because allergy season is pending). When the headache gets bad, she takes two Advil.

Some days I do have a slight off balance feeling when upright but nothing too bad. I have taken sudafed and nasonex with no results. Im thinking maybe it could be BVVP I think is what it is called, but could it last this long? I have no health insurance so I am reluctant to go to an ENT. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
So I took amoxicillin, sudafed and mucinex. 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).
Most of the dr's just tell me to take Flonase or nasonex, or something like it, or use a sinus wash. I've tried these and nothing seems to work. This year seems to be the worst I ever recall, I've had tinitis since February. Last ent I went to did allergy testing as well as hearing test. Allergy testing showed allergy to dustmites, mold, and cockroaches (eww).
The pain is at the base of my head on the right side and radiates down to my neck and shoulder and last night down my arm. I have never had pain in my neck that has lasted so long. I even moan through the night trying to find a comfortable position. Could anyone tell me if the sinus infection and the neck pain be related. Thanks!
also i apply lotion in nostrils to keep hydrated. just went to doc. and he stopped me from all decongestents (like sudafed) and perscribed nasonex- i hope that helps also- oh he also said to keep using the 'netti-pot' (run salt solution thru sinus while in shower). that helps keep sinus inflamation down and helps with nagging headaches.
The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue. It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned.
I saw the doctor yesterday and after reading the comments here, I do not feel very confident in his treatment. Sudafed and Benadryl. I even made a list of symptoms and incidents and typed them up and gave him. Don't think he paid any attention. The ear is much worse this morning. So are the headaches and that 'walk like a drunk' falling into walls. I'm 65 years old and my husband is making me stay in bed worried I will break a hip or arm.
I had dizziness and jitteriness spells to go along with this. I first was told to take Sudafed, and then told to take Mucinex-D. After having bad experiences with those, my doctor gave me Allegra-D. Well, after figuring out that the "-D" in these medicines were making me crazy because of the Pseudoephidrine, I quickly got off of them. Every time I took them, I became very "jittery" and felt "hyper" but without the energy.
Make caldo soup (: the help me the next day and I was sufferings from.allergy for.a.
I am suffering right now and i am taking clarinex and nasonex. (bad during pg) but i am in 2ww so i am not going to stop my meds until bfp. GOod luck girl!! I feel your pain..
nasal rinsing with a neti pot or bottle helps a lot, and so does medication - from benedryl/sudafed/dimetapp to better prescription drugs to stop the congestion - nasonex, singulair, and inhalers to relax the lungs like advair, pulmacort, albuterol.
I've tried Nasonex but made symptoms worse, Telfast didn't do much and sudafed didn't help either. It's really getting me down and I can't lead a normal life right now so please help. Thank you.
When I went to the doctor, he said he saw no problems other than in my left sinuses which he assumed was the problem for my ear ache/runny nose/sore throat, etc. I've been taking nasonex, sudafed, and just today stopped taking my amoxicillin pills. My problem is that now I have no ear infection, but I have a LOT of bright green mucus in my nose, and I have a persistent cough every time I take a deep breath and even when I'm talking for more than a few seconds.

Have tried several medications such as Zyrtec D, Flonase, Nasonex, Xyzal....also nasal rinses, and some vitamins and herbs...nothing works for long. Today the doc decided to start testing me for allergies to try to get to the root of the fluid and swelling in my ears. Your results sound interesting. I have in the past from time to time has what I think are fever blisters around the corners of my mouth. Is there a test for Herpes simplex 1? I may mention this to my ENT next time I go there.
Since June/July 09 I have had constant pressure in my left ear. It doesn't seem to really be affecting my hearing. I have had my ears cleaned (no wax) tried Flonase, Anefrin, Sudafed, every other nasal decongestant and am currently on Augmentin & Nasonex. My ear feels like it has water in it and sometimes make odd noises when I lay on my right side and swallow (sounds like fizzing). I seem to remember having this before but only for a couple days or so but this lasted months.
Nose bleeds are a common side effect so a different brand may help better. Others are ayamys, nasacort, or nasonex, plus many others. Nasal rinsing using a neti pot or neil med sinus rinse may also help flush out anything that is in your sinuses and there is a much lower risk of bleeding since there is no medication, it's just pure saline.
After 8 months an ENT said that my nasal passage had inflamation and prescribed nasonex. This helped right away and the congestion and cough went away. Thus, when the congestion lingered this time (thick yellow mucos when I blowed my nose), I called my family doctor to get a prescription for nasonex. This helped my nose but I then got a persistent tickly cough that was worse at night. Now a month and a half later, the cough and tickles occur all the time.
if you are sneezing and stuffy, take sudafed, it has to be the regular staight sudafed, it can not be sudafed PE, my RE and ob gyn told me the sudafed PE decreases blood supply to the uterus, but straight sudafed is perfectly fine. I dont know about other states but in new york you actually have to go to the pharmacist to get the sudafed, as people were abusing it to make meth, so they have to take your drivers license info down..
Doctor gave a shot of cortisone and a Prescription for Nasonex yesterday. The cortisone started to woek in 3 hrs and the vibrating eardrum stopped this morning completely. The Dr. said it was sinus related and the pressure within the eardrum was causing the vbibration.
sent me for a CT of sinus and it was clear. Sent me to an ENT - gave me nasal steroid and antihistamines. No help. Been doing saline irrigation, vitamins. Am now on Prednisone (steroid pills) for 6 days. After 1 and 1/2 days feel better and pressure is leaving but scared because I know after this 6 days I'll be back to where I was and I'm extremely run down and need to rebuild to fight whatever this is. Scheduled for allergy testing the end of the month.
She could try taking Sudafed at the same time as the Benadryl. Sudafed tends to keep a lot of people awake, and for me counteracts the sleepy effect of Benadryl or Chlor-trimeton.I have never tried allergy shots. I have a friend who is much older, and she has given herself allergy shots at home for years, and swears by them.
