Are nasonex and flonase the same

Common Questions and Answers about Are nasonex and flonase the same


Avatar n tn I started to think what could be making me feel this way and I started to do some research and came to the conclusion I should stop taking FLONASE. The very next day my heart was back to normal and my blood pressure started to look better and better. From now on I will only take Flonase if I really need it!
Avatar n tn I was really hoping that with the weather getting colder, this would slowly wear off. But no such luck; I still get stuffed up, my heart starts beating really fast, my blood pressure fluctuates, and I find myself dizzy as hell... I had an mri of my brain done, and it came back all normal (which was expected I guess, given what I have been reading on these forums.) Now waiting for the results of the ct scan of my sinuses.
Avatar n tn Do your research, you must help yourself, when doctors can't help you. By the way there was a doctor with my same condition and the same as most of you. She tried the antihistamine approach and is back to her old self. If it works great, if not, at least you tried.
Avatar m tn If they get inflamed, you may feel an earache, a pain in the neck, and an ache in the top of your head. Most of the time, though, you are just going to feel a general pain everywhere in your head, especially when you awaken in the morning. Other symptoms may include: • A runny nose. This is called rhinitis. • Nasal congestion • Fever • General weakness • Fatigue • Malaise • A cough caused by infected mucus draining into your throat and irritating your throat.
345124 tn?1234486878 The ear situation seems to kick in with spring allergy season, and persists through the summer and part of the fall. My sister in law has similar symptoms. She takes Zyrtec, and a prescription nasal spray when she feels her ears filling. As for me I did not find much in the way of over the counter drugs to help the allergy symptoms. However, I take Meclizine ( motion sickness tablets) to help relieve the dizziness when it occurs.
Avatar dr m tn After repeated exposure to the same allergen, a massive release of histamines and other inflammatory mediators occurs. The end result—runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. When Allergies Cause You Misery Obviously, a little sneezing and congestion never hurt anyone. For most people, these symptoms are no more than a mere nuisance and most can get by without any medications or for others, simple over-the-counter medications (see chart).
Avatar n tn I have the same problem ... since i was young everyday i sing ... up to present i never stop singing ..
Avatar n tn you could do it on a spare-time basis until you get enough training and certifications to switch over and do it all the time. (Since you are interested in the cause-and-effect of your illness, that's how come I thought of hospital stuff.
Avatar f tn I drain to the back of my throat,I have to clear my throat quite often during the day..The mornings and after the end of the work day are the worst.I am constantly gaging.Their are times that I try so hard to clear my throat that I get stabing pain on my chest. Any suggestions,spend at least 15 to 20 mintens clearing my throat.
Avatar n tn Hallo all I see everyoe is suffering as much as I am with the secretion of too much mucus in the throat. I never used to expeerience this until one day I had something in my throat that was almost stuck in there.
Avatar n tn Im starting to wonder if we all have something they havent figured out yet so we are all diagnosed with the same thing. Good Luck and Thanks!
Avatar f tn The frontal sinuses are behind your forehead. The ethmoid sinuses are behind and below the frontal sinuses. The sphenoid sinuses are behind your nose. To work properly, mucus needs to drain well from the sinuses. The nasal septum is a plate of bone and cartilage along the center of the nose. A deviated nasal septum is shifted to one side. When your septum is deviated there is less space on the side that the septum leans towards. Generally this area is squeezed.
Avatar n tn I am about the same age as yours and have recenlty found that I am also a suffrer of Minere disease. I have had this probelm for about 14 years. I used to get episodical dizziness atacks in the beginning which would last for few hours to a day. I used to tke Stametil for the dizziness treatment and it worked. However some 6 years ago, I started feeling roaring and ringing noise in one of ears.
Avatar m tn I've been taking zyrtec in the mornings and I used nasonex right afterwards but it didn't really work... next morning ---- it's a bit better still hurts a bit...
Avatar n tn If this is the case, it is reasonable to see an ENT and/or have a CT scan of your sinuses. This will tell you immediately if the sinuses are a problem and if they are a contributing factor to these other issues. I would talk with your doctor about your fears and request a referral or have the CT scan under his direction.
Avatar n tn I have searched several different forums on the net and see the same story which is referred ear pain , neck and or head stiffness and pain and a myriad of other symptoms in each case the patient is seen by his GP given a course of antibiotics the pain never goes away is then sent to an ENT or dentist so forth and so on . So far there hasn't been one positive diagnosis and in some cases dentists have referred patients to oral surgeons for needless wisdom tooth extraction.
Avatar n tn My first thought was- what the heck is going on- I have this bad sinus infection , on meds for that for 20 days- it never goes away- was told to take celexa- (which I took at the same time as the anti-biotic)- and then started having attacks, tingling in my fingers and toes, and then I am being sent to a pyschologists? for anxiety or panic disorder.??? I really hope you get better and I did go to chiropractor ( I have not been in a few months though)...maybe I should go back for a visit.
Avatar n tn I am very intrested in the use of a nebulizer and the mixing of the Astelin, Flonase etc. how do you mix it and then how are you getting it in your sinuses without a nebulizer? I don't even know what a nebulizer is but I need to find out. It's encouraging that you have had such remarkable results let me know how to use it if you can explain it.
Avatar n tn 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'm going to call back today and insist on a thyroid test (I can't loose weight no matter how little eating and how many miles a walk a day). Now I can't even walk!
Avatar n tn 1) congestion on that side 2) septum deviation towards that side, blocking passage One should never force saline into nares, it can back it up into the throat and possibly run into the lungs. Other options are available to reduce swelling, such as nasal steroids which require prescriptions. Decongestants (OTC) can help as well.
Avatar n tn Everything that the doctor already suggested does help, but I still have to use allergy medicine. I use Benadryl and Nasonex. Nasonex, because it is fragrance-free. Flonase isn't fragrance-free and I could taste that one going down the back of my throat through the nasal passages connecting to the throat. That affected me negatively in other ways, too. I'm glad my doctor changed my prescription to Nasonex.
Avatar n tn The heat and humidity allow the mold to grow and become suspended in the air we all breath. Thus, the aches are most prevalent in hot and humid months and when grasses grow and are cut the most (June-August). Other allergies can compound the problem/symptoms. Relief comes with a change in the weather - cool temps or rain which cleans and knocks the mold out of the air. Alternaria does not grow below 60 degrees so cold nights and cool days are when the symptoms are least felt.
Avatar n tn My middle one is doing the peak flow meter to moniter for a couple weeks as well as zyrtec, flonase and my older one we are just taking to the ENT. So, i'm not sure all the how's what's but i'm in the same boat as you. My middle one (9) coughs a LOT and my older one coughs so much junk up that he makes himself throw up sometimes. My concern is that in 11 years nobody noticed anything? so, let me know how things go with you!
Avatar n tn I had vertigo several years ago during an ear infection and the effects are virtually the same! This only happens on the highway. I have been to doctors and they look at me like i'm nuts. One prescribed me tranquilizers for panic attacks. They work sometimes but I now avoid highways at all cost because I am afraid of having an accident. I dont drink,never taken drugs and excercise 5 days a week. I dont know what else to do.
Avatar f tn Another possibility if your are myopic is that your glasses are too strong. At your age 24 the glasses test should be done after your eyes are dilated and the focus muscle fully relaxed. This is called a post-cycloplegic refraction and the glasses being too strong is called "over minused" I am also concerned about the spot on the back of the eye.
Avatar n tn She put him on Singular, Nasonex, Zithromaz, Pulmicort and Xopenex with a nebulizer and Pancof-PD for cough at night. All at the same time. It kinda scares me!! He has been having up to 5 potty accidents a day. Is this possibly related? He seems to be full of energy (which he has been all along, he has never even acted sick). I have noticed after a treatment of Pulmicort that he gets a little crazy. I am wondering if I am doing the nebulizer treatments properly.
Avatar n tn There are really two possibilities for what you all are facing and I'll explain simply. The first is what the symptoms are, and that they are recurring. This leads me to believe it is either something that you are all frequently ingesting, whether through diet or normal breathing, or it is something that is dormant in your cells.
Avatar n tn hello i did not understand the call for the cat scan so i went back to my family doc and she exlpained . there are nerves that run through the face and down the carotid artery .the cat scan w contrast is to see if there is some type of mass or something pushing on the nerve . the one thing that seems to work some is a shot of toradol 2cc .the pills don't seem to the trick but the injection helps . it is an anti-inflamitory . i can still feel the pain in my neck but not so much in my eye .
Avatar m tn I have seen numerous people reporting palpitations and other systemic effects across the internet after using Beconase and other brands (Nasonex, Flonase etc) of steroid nasal sprays. Has anyone had a similar experience?
Avatar n tn I wish I knew. The same thing happens to me. Spicy food, and some kinds of candy bars are the worst. And things that are really dry like crackers set it off too. It scares everyone around me. Sometimes it scares me too when I can't stop. Most of all it's humiliating. Water doesn't help. It's like I just have to keep coughing till I'm all coughed out. I get very hot from the intense coughing, and I get so exhaused from it that I feel like I'm might pass out by the time it slows down.
