Nasonex over counter

Common Questions and Answers about Nasonex over counter

nasonex

i was told by a few docs that certain over the counter cold medicines and other medicines can actually cause pvcs. does this pertain to nasonex as well. i mean, i like the idea of breathing easier through my nose and not feeling like a baloon in the head all day but not at the cost of possibly getting pvcs again. anyone on this medicine here by any chance? any effect on your pvcs or palpitations?
It is considered an otc med or over the counter and the changes of it damaging your heart are slim to none so relax a little. These residual effects i am sure will lessen as each day passes but it was a good lesson for you and now it seems like you know what not to do. If you are having probs. w. allergys you need to call the doc and see if there is something that he/she can recommend to you that will be safer for your system. It is just simply your body rebeling against what you put in it.
This stuff is no where as affective as Afrin or other over-the-counter decongestant sprays, but they can't be used more than a few nights in a row. So I use them for way over the limit, but switch back to the prescription spray before anything bad happens... works so far. I have permanent atrial fibrillation, so my heart beat is irregular and prone to be too fast (I take beta and calcium channel blockers). I have never associated any heart behavior problems on the Fluticasone.
Please see my other post concerning my recent eye problems http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/692522?personal_page_id=328653&post_id=post_3688567 I have been on over the counter nasal spray for the last 10 years due to always having probelms breathing without it. Could this have anything to do with the nasal spray possibly eating away at something inside my nose / sinus area where air can be getting trapped in my upper eye lid giving me headaches a lot of pressure in that area ?
So after I read all of your postings I went to buy any over the counter medications I could find that would cover any diagnoses that your doctors have given you. Then I called a family friend, who is a doctor, to ask if I could take all these medications at the sametime. He helped me work out a system that has done wonders for me and I hope that it will work for you. He told me to continue with the allergy medicine whether is was prescribed or over the counter such as clarinex or allegra.
It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
I have used over the counter oral medicine (Claritin) which provided some relief. A few months ago I went to an ENT Doctor. The ENT Doctor examined my Ears, Nose and Throat. After the exam the doctor told me that I had a deviated septum and possibly a nasal polyp. The ENT Doctor prescribed nasonex and also told me that surgery may be an option. I have found that nasonex has worked well for me and I am able to breath through my nose.
Not sure, but I think nasonex is a prescription steroid that is effective for some allergies - the first test I'd run is to try a over-the-counter nasal spray that shrinks membranes -Afrin is a brand name in the US, but there are many here and some less expensive. There are also oral (swallowed) decongestants I would try being careful to use the does for children, not adults.
If it cannot be managed conservatively with medications, it may need surgical excision. Nasal saline irrigations over the counter like NeilMed or Neti pot are very effective, try this along with your medications Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
yeh hes right clariten and loratadine same thing..... ones cheaper,,,,,.....
Dear John, As you know many of the over the counter cold preparations may cause an increase in arrhythmias. You might tryclaritin if this is ok with your physician and have this monitored.
I have tried just about every type of antihystamine, my doctor used to prescribe me with terfenadine up until about 10 years ago and then I decided to try an over the counter one and after trying numerous piriton, clarytin, etc etc I stuck with Benedryl certirize hydrochloride, it seems to work better than any other but still it never actually stops my nose running and it is affecting my job.
A nasal steroid spray is also beneficial as well as oral steroids. Nasal saline irrigations over the counter like NeilMed or Neti pot are very effective, but worsen Eustachian tube dysfunction (water in the ears or feeling of fullness in the ears). The best diagnosis for this problem is a CT of the sinuses. Surgery is recommended to patients that fail maximal medical treatment. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
the dr thought he might also have allergies so I was also told to give him nasalcrom twice a day.. you can buy it over the counter.. he squirms around so much I have sprayed him in the eye a couple of times so I really haven't been consistent with the nasal sprays. He just stopped taking his antibiotic 2 days ago, so we'll see how it goes from here. This was his second round of antibiotics.. the first was for 10 days, this time it was for 14. Best of luck to you.
One of the things I have noticed that helps is taking meclizine (dramimine over the counter) and claritin or benadryl. It help with the dizziness.
I take Chlorpheneramine Maleate by prescription. You can get it over the counter as Chlor-Trimeton but try the 12-hour ones; don't waste your time with anything less. This is primarily anti-histamine; no decongestant. My step-son takes either this or Allegra........he likes both about the same. Besides the fact this one really works for me and has for years, I can get a 30-day supply of 12-hour capsules for only $2.35 via RX. Over the counter is considerably more.
They are to be taken on prescription. You can use an over-the-counter (otc) decongestant combined with an anti-inflammatory analgesic (pain reliever) like Ibuprofen. However, you should not use decongestants for more than 5-7 days at a time. Symptoms can also be relieved by using a saline nasal spray or a nasal spray that contains corticosteroids. Corticosteroids work by helping to reduce inflammation and congestion. The golden rule for chronic stuffy nose is steam inhalation.
Might could try zyrtec once daily especially during allergy season, as it is now over the counter. Some people find good results with nasal saline. It is inexpensive, shouldnt cause rebound. I would at least follow up with your doc for a recheck to make sure nothing else is going on. PS..elevate the head of your bed about 4 to 6 inches. May give some relief. Best of luck to you.
The only way to help the severe ones is to take over the counter pain meds and go to bed with a heating pad on my head. Soo as a last resort I am doing the allergy shot therapy.. I just started... Did it help any of you? Please feel free to share your experience.
I am not a doctor, but it could be BPPV. You could try some Meclizine 25 mg. (Dramamine, over the counter), and see if it helps. Also, you could go online and check out the Epley Maneuver and try doing the exercises for "at Home". You can ryt some Brandt/Daroff exercises, or something like that also. Hope you feel better.
are these available only by prescription? or is there an over the counter remedy that I could use that would be effective? Thanks for your response.
I use a blend of kosher salt and baking soda in solution (1-2) times daily and use two sprays of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasonex</span> in each nostril in the AM and on occassion use NasalCrom (over the counter--Cromolyn Sodium Solution). I can breath, my sinuses are not blocked and my infection rate is way way down. It sure beat antibiotics and oral steroids. The first ime you use it the feeling is a bit intimidating. I first thought "Where is the water going, into my brain?
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.
The nasal spray seems to work very well, but I have to use the spray for 8 to 10 days in a row. Warnings on every over the counter medicine state I should not be using medications for this extended duration. Please suggest a sinus pain reliever I can take for 10 consecutive days.

I have had allergies for Ten years, and after five years of using a lot of over the counter medicines that do not work, I finally seen a ENT specialist who gave me a kenalog shot that worked within the first five minutes. He also prescribed Allegra D to me and that drug works a little, not as well as the shot though. I have been told not to use the shot so often as it can make your bones brittle and also make you go blind over time.

I never had allergies tho. Does anyone know ny over the counter drugs that will help my ear drain? I suspect it can be my ear drainage irritating my throat, making it feel swallen and irritated.
It is good idea to go and consult a ENT specialist or a neurophysican and get evaluated. Till then, take over the counter pain medications and Alprozolam orally for sometime till your doctor treats you. Take care.
