Common Questions and Answers about Nasonex generic available

nasonex

He put me on Nasonex, a steroid nasal spray, to reduce the inflammation. 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.
Rx's include Nasonex, (generic: Ipratropium 0.06% spray) 1 ea nostil q 8hr, from Int Med.-- Flonase (generic: 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. Allowed Waldryl (Dye-Free Benadryl from Walgreens)--Antihistamine 6 per day. Can not control sinus congestion, runny nose. Or mucous at back of throat. Allergy tested. Allergic to every indigenous tree & bush in Arizona.
It is unfortunate that the trade names vary so much around the world, but the generic name should always be the same and almost always available, especially at large pharmacies: Montelukast (a so called anti-leukotriene drug), Budesonide an inhaled steroid, Formoterol as you state, a long acting beta agonist –bronchodilator drug. Any qualified/certified pharmacist should be able to associate the preceding drug names with the local commercial name of the drug.
If the Sudafed keeps you awake at night (it does with me) take it with Benadryl, or Chlortrimaton. All of these are available over th counter, and in generic forms. They should be perfectly safe with Nasonex, but you can always ask the pharmacist if you want peace of mind. Good luck. I know how you feel.
You might try to get in with your primary and see if he/she will prescribe some thing like Nasonex and/or Astepro. Nasonex is a nasal steroid which reduces inflammation of the sinus passages and therefore reduces allergy symptoms. There are many other name brands for that class of medicine. Astepro is a nasal spray antihistamine. It stops the sinus cells from reacting to allergens. There are only two meds in this category. Astepro and Patanase.
You are already on the standard medical therapy available for your condition and your symptoms have improved. It shows that you are more likely to have allergic rhinitis. There are many allergens present in your surrounding. Unless you stop further exposure or unless you take measures to minimize the exposure, medical therapy will be not enough.
Since the specialist put me on Fess saline spray, 3 squirts up each nostril, blow it all out, then a quick squirt of Nasonex each morning, I can say I am better. Not 100% as I still some days get that PND. Specialist said that different people have different nasal passages and it depends on how the tilt their head all day how it will run. I tend be on the computer or walking so my head is tilted forward and I get Hiker's Honker!
The doctors suggested that perhaps it was seasonal allergies and placed me on Clarinex, Nasonex and Astepro - none of which have had any sort of effect. I purchased a Neilmed Netipot, but my sinuses are so blocked that I can't use the product, as the nasal rinse wont travel through my nasal passages. The ONLY medication that I have taken that helps is Neo synephrine nasal spray.
The specialist suggested that my allergy-related stuffy nose might be causing the ear problems, and suggested that I take the nasal spray Nasonex. Since Nasonex causes nosebleeds, I declined to take Nasonex. Since my visit to the specialist, some additional ear problems have surfaced. I've felt pain and clogging in my right ear. Also, when I talk, the right ear sometimes "acts up" and makes my talking sound like a static-filled radio station.
Antivert is the exact same medicine as Dramamine Less Drowsy Formula. The generic name is meclizine. I'm not sure whether regular Dramamine would help dizziness. Good luck at the ENT!
My allergist started me with Nasonex, which is unscented. It is only about 50% effective for me. Have you experienced any sedating effects with Patanase? Is Patanase another steroid medication? Does it help get rid of the sinus headaches caused by the sinus allergies? I'm not able to take ANY pain medications whatsoever. I can't take NSAIDs due to a kidney issue I didn't know I had, and I'm allergic to everything else.
I do know the levels of natural cortisone made by the body decrease at night and also lying down (now that I have started claritin and nasonex) may be causing the congestion in my head (which I cannot feel but know from the ct scan is actually there!) is filling up in my chest. interestingly, I availed of my daughters ventolin during the night when the cough would not subside, and it really gave me some relief.....???? may try the humidifier....
I rinse with saline no less than three times a day and use a steroid spray Nasonex at night, my ENT advised me to use Mucinex to help thin the mucus. It helps but every four months like clockwork, the smell is out of control. It never completely goes away but when it's bad I have to actually stay away from people. This is my second ENT, I've tried every other doctor, had every ct scan and no one has been able to tell me what this is.
I've used the nasal spray, which will wash out what ever is bothering me, but I still get no relief. I'm using Nasonex, which has been like using nothing. I used Flonase in the past. Same thing. I'm on Benadryl all the time, otherwise I would have an itchy runny nose, sneezing, plus this sinus pain. I can't take ANYTHING for pain. I've been dealing with a kidney issue, so NSAIDs are out. I'm allergic to Tylenol, and I'm allergic to all opiates.
However, a neti pot flush may or may not reach the upper part of the sinuses. They are now widely available. ***BUT, before you try anything here, you should go to a doctor and have your problem checked out. You may have a problem that looks like a sinus infection, but is something else. The medical model works for most people, and if you have a severe sinus infection, it could spread to other parts of your head or body, and it would be a good idea to be on antibiotics.
I tried attacking both issues, PND and anxiety ... for the PND, I was prescribed Nasonex Nasal Spray (mometasone furoate) which I have been on for nearly 2 months and PND things have settled quite a bit ... I would say half way there, a big noticeable difference, but still a way to go. For the anxiety I started (on advice from a naturopath) magnesium and zinc supplements, as a deficiency in these areas can give you an elevated base anxiety level.
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. 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.
You may want to talk to your physician about septoplasty surgery and ask him if that would help. Also, before I had the surgery I used J's Nose Drops (available online) and that got rid of all of my sinus infections. There is also another product called "Bi Yan Pian" that works. It is also available online and very cheap.
Now, I call and tell her that I NEED FIXED NOW. So she tries Nasonex and Albuteral Inhaler. Doesnt work. .. Two weeks ago I went on a med strike. Stopped ALL my meds just to see IF it might be them.. Nope.. Still coughing. I go back to see her Friday and we'll see what the next try is.. After reading from all of you, I doubt anything will "fix" me.
It's available in health food stores and drug stores. Most of them are 50-100 mg, however, so the trick is to find 600 mg so you can just take one a day. Not sure I can mention brand names, but here are some: Natrol makes two kinds of 600 mg, one regular and one "time-release," but I haven't noticed any difference. Walgreens carries it in that strength, and so do many on-line drug companies. I wait until it's on sale and then stock up.
The information that I posted is just a small fraction of the research available. To arbitrarily dismiss it is anyones choice. I personally will continue to search for alternatives. The accepted didn't work for me and I refuse to lay down and die because someone suggest that anything beyond drugs is snakeoil. Walk a mile in my shoes, or the shoes of others in this forum, then see how you feel about alternatives. For those that are thinking of trying Meso Silver I will say that is a bad idea.
Initially, most anti-histamines were not effective at treating it but in later years I found Fexofenadine hydrochloride 180 mg (Allegra/Telfast) prevents attacks. There is plenty of good literature available online on Cholinergic Allergies (try searching in www.scholar.google.com). Basically, the average time you will suffer is 7 years, although people can suffer on and off for 30 years. I am sorry to tell you this but apparently there is NOTHING you can do to get rid of it.
Well, a week from my 'confession', and I still have a cough, but getting better and smoke/toast smell is not so frequent. I am convinced it's sinus related and my advice to anyone who is concerned about any other reason, especially if you have other symptoms, is to get it checked out.
Food allergies are very unlikely. You should take your son to an ophthalmologist Eye MD physician, perhaps a pediatric one if available, for a proper diagnosis and treatment. You can find one at www.aao.org using the Find An Eye MD feature.
I recently had another seizure and my medication level was low...I never miss a pill and I account it on generic medication. I felt strange for months and now I am on Dilantin. The feeling of not knowing is difficult to deal with; and we/I are still expected to perform as though nothing is wrong. I had taken a fall (mid 80's) well after going through seizures and had to have a brain operation because of fractures in my skull and two broken blood vesicles.
