Difference between nasonex and flonase

Common Questions and Answers about Difference between nasonex and flonase


Avatar m tn I was paying $135 or so for Nasonex, which I thought was ridiculously expensive at the time. When Flonase became an OTC product, I thought Nasonex would become cheaper. That's what competition is supposed to do. But noooooo... I went to CVS today and the price was $218 for Nasonex. That is a total ripoff... Why did the price go up? So what's the difference between Merck, the manufacturer, and a robber with a gun on the street? Answer: The gun. Merck robs you without using a gun.
Avatar n tn I bought the oregano oil and used it for about a week - didn't swallow, but put on my wrists as directions said you could take through the skin. Of course I saw no difference in a week and didn't continue..so after I see the ENT I may start that back again. I have always eaten a lot of junk (candy, pies, cake) so I'm sure I'm feeding it well if that has anything to do with it.
Avatar n tn I pretty much have given up, my dizzies are better because of diretics, flonase, 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.
Avatar n tn I was so annoyed when he said there is no proven connection between allergies and dizziness. He's now ordered an MRI and additional balance tests and has started talking about ruling out tumors, etc. Thanks for sharing your stories. It always surprises me how many non-allergist MD's don't understand how allergies can affect the body.
Avatar f tn I have been on flonase for the last 5yr's since this all started and it never helped. What is the difference between Flonase and Nasonex?
Avatar n tn I asked my doctor about the relationship of my ear face and neck pain and he says he's never heard of the relationship between bad teeth and all these symptoms. I have extremely painful teeth and am ready to have them all pulled. Can't afford it but willing to go through it some how. I'm going through hell and have for close to fifteen years and eat tylenol ones like it's candy! I go to emergency when the neck and face swell so bad I can't take anymore- three times now in ten months!
Avatar n tn I now have the BPPV back after a long spell and realise the difference between feeling normal and THIS feeling.It's like permanently having the flu and you just can't wait to get home...but it doesn't go away. I am listing some similarities in what I have read if anyone sees this too please comment. Hospital Stay Over Exercising Many hours looking at a computer Severe Trauma Mold Stress ( I know, everybody has this but I mean....
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I have been dizzy now for almost 2 months, and my doctor has given me nasonex and allegra. I haven't started the allegra yet, but my symptoms are getting worse. The dizzyness is almost all of the time, and especially bad if I move to quick and from sitting to standing. Headaches are getting worse, hard to get rid of. I have had blood work and an exam, and all the Dr. noticed was that my nasal passages were extremely dry. Everything else has checked out great.
Avatar n tn There are such things as headaches and anxiety – and we know the difference between that and the stuff we're getting. Head pain, chronic head pain, coupled with weird, tender swelling in the carotid artery or sternocleidomastoid is not any easy thing to shrug off. It can literally drive you crazy. When everyone says it's anxiety, yeah, the anxiety that comes from horrible undiagnosed symptoms that are real.
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Avatar m tn A study published in the Journal of Family Practice in February of 2005 showed that there was no difference between the patients who received an antibiotic and the patients who received a placebo. That’s just one study, but it does cast doubt on the effectiveness of short-term antibiotic treatment for mild acute sinusitis. Taking antibiotics also increases the chance that you can develop a drug-resistance strain of bacteria living in your upper respiratory tract.
Avatar m tn I was thinking that when people quit smoking, it has the effect of improving circulation and slowing metabolism, I am wondering if any of these two things could be making it worse for non smokers,better circulation might be pumping more blood and oxygen into the sinuses, or perhaps the slower metabolism is a factor.
Avatar n tn He put me on Nasonex, Clarinex, and Augmentin XR. I hope this helps!!!

535089 tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994.

Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn I've seen my MD and an ENT and they suggested Flonase (supposedly they believed my condition to be allergy related), but this did NOT work either! Is anyone aware of any medication that can help? I've read the "vinegar" treatment in some of the comments and I will definitely try that (why not, it can't be any worse than CONSTANTLY clearing my throat!!).
Avatar n tn I have tried everything, netty-pot, every prescription medication and spray, saline flushes. I know I am allergic to cats and Ihave a few, but I am fine in between, then all of a sudden I have a bad sneeze day. 100 times!!! I work as a nurse - once the liquid was running out of my nose as I bent over to help a patient, embarassing. I wear face masks and explain that I don't have a cold, just allergies.
Avatar n tn Once I completed the round, the blurred vision, and head pressure came back.. I have been using Alavert D12 and Flonase 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.
Avatar n tn He told me that, rather than getting the expensive Rx for the guafenesin, use the Robitussin Guafenesin. So, between THAT AND the Flonase, I've been keeping that blocked feeling AND the dizziness at bay. I ALWAYS have the Robitussin G. on hand, at least 2 bottles of it I've gotten away from the Flonase. But, I know what you all mean re. the dizziness and 'squishy' feeling near your ears.
Avatar n tn Have you not had treatment for your Sinusis other than flonase? Is there no operation? and do you get the popping and crackling noices too? I thought maybe the adenoids were blocking this, or even the the muscle behind the eustation tube was not working properly, because sometimes when i yourn, my right ear feels with air and i cannot get rid of this (sounds like an ocean). Im currently on Flixonase to treat any allergic allergies that may be causing all this, however, does not seem to work.
299940 tn?1192322967 2nd doctor did sinus x-rays and saw fluid in my right maxillary sinus and put me on Flonase, still had the headache and starting having vision problems with both eyes. I saw my optometrist and he found nothing wrong but increased the prescription of my contacts for my right eye, and he referred me to a general physican since i did not have one yet.
192055 tn?1263559137 I have gone to an ent who thought I had gerd. he prescribed nasonex and prilosec with no help. i have gone to my nutritionist and she feeld it could be a yeast allergy - candida. google it and see if it would apply to you. i am going to start a strict yeast free diet, start acidophillus, and do some infr-red treatments to detoxify. i hope it helps.
Avatar n tn I agree that the only (and best) thing we can do is to continue to point out the inconsistencies between SOC and newer treatments on the horizon that have some medical basis in fact, and products that are not backed by research and are just a way for cyber conmen to line their pockets. mickythenose - I've seen some research that is a little similar to the physics article, and it will be interesting to see how all of this new research pans out.
Avatar n tn So I went to see ANOTHER ENT last week and he gave me an Rx for Nasonex and Cipro. To this day nothing has changed. I'm either fine one day and feeling that I may finally be over this, and then I'm sadly disappointed the next day when it's back. The only thing that seems to really help at this point is a steaming pot of hot water which I add a little cider vinigar to and hold a towel over my head, breathing the steam for about 10/15 minutes.
Avatar n tn It is time to try an alternative. Start doing the following breathing exercise daily and it will help all your ear problem. - Deep Breath-in through left nostril keeping right nostril closed then - Breath-out through right nostril keeping left nostril closed then -Deep Breath-in through right nostril keeping left nostril closed then - Breath-out through left nostril keeping right nostril closed and repeat this cycle for 15 minutes twice a day.
Avatar n tn He said that I needed to stay on a drug like prilosec for as long as 6 months, and take it twice a day 1/2 hour before breakfast and dinner. I have been on it for almost a month now, and cannot yet see a big difference. Will let you know how things progress. good luck!
Avatar n tn It's so hard to tell, but as of yesterday I can sort of hear my own voice, and I can hear much lower and quieter pitches than before. It's still very buzzy, no difference between a beep, and dog barking, a voice, etc. But I really think something is improving. I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much though. It's been three weeks today since my hearing loss. Roy, I was trying to figure out from your past messages- did you consider the steroid injections?
Avatar n tn This has been happening on and off for over a year now. i have asthma, and am on singular, advair, and flonase. I have had all the cardio tests run...negative, i have had tons of pulmonary test done...all normal. Except one test, a VO2 test that showed that there was an abnormality between the respiratory and cardiac functions.
