Fluticasone over the counter

Common Questions and Answers about Fluticasone over the counter


612551 tn?1450025775 I have tried the generic for Flonase (fluticasone) which didn't help much, not ow Astepro (not a steroid) which is a little more help, but none are as good as the over the counter Afrin (or similar) which can not be used for long periods. This congestion led me to recognize I have some trouble waking up with a suffocation sensession. .
Avatar m tn You are also going to be bending over forward in the shower. The shower is not a good place to find out that bending over makes you dizzy. Practice it first before you get in a shower, no matter how young and fit and healthy you assume that you are. Stand in front of a bed or couch or a carpeted floor. Slowly bend forward as far as you can comfortably bend, and look between your legs at the crotch. Slowly stand up erect.
Avatar m tn You should let the person taking your test know about any and all drugs (prescription and over the counter) and herbal and vitamin supplements you are taking to make sure no wrong results are determined with possible related illegal drugs.
Avatar n tn over the counter cremes like lotrimin may work...otherwise you may need a doc's prescription for ketaconizale creme, or fluticasone propionate (spelling?
Avatar f tn I find Afrin-type over-the-counter works great, but it can't be used more that a few nights without risk of a rebound that may be worse than what you had to begin with. I have a prescription nasal spray fluticasone proportionate that can be used twice a day (I have very little to no congestion when I am up and on my feet). I have gotten some relief from the FP prescription accompanied by saline spray used often, every time I wake up at night for example.
Avatar m tn I've had chronic hives for years and have been on various prescription and over the the counter antihistamines with no effect on my hives. Five days ago I had my first injection (300) and it has had no effect on my hives. I'm paying $1400 out of pocket for the treatment and am debating whether to have another two injections. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Most of what I get out is on the inside wall where the nostrils are seperated. I've tried many over the counter meds (Mucinex, Claritin, Claritin D, Sudafed, etc), but nothing seems to work. Last week I bought some nasal spray and nasal gel which helps for about 10 to 15 minutes, but then it goes back to burning again. I've had 2 pretty severe sinus infections over the past couple of years, but my doctor has yet to recommend going to a specialist. Should I ask for a referral?
Avatar m tn My blood pressure is finaly normal and the syncope episodes are gone but i have a headache on my forehead that wont go away even with over the counter meds. My doctor says in time the headaches will go away. I also seem to get a runny nose everytime i take the midodrine. Just want to see if anyone has had similar expieriences. I have only been on it for 2 weeks now and taking 2.5 mg in the morning and late afternoon.
Avatar m tn Albuterol sulfate will open the airways and save your life. Square two is to purchase an over-the counter expectorant, such as Guinafesen, which will help break up the mucus. You would benefit from an evaluation at a respiratory clinic and undergo what is called a "chemical challange", They will put an aerosol of a substance known to cause an asthmatic reaction and measure the reaction. They placed you on a mild steroid, but it usually takes a few weeks for it to work.
Avatar m tn Fluticasone (generic) but what really works is just over the counter Afrin which can not be used but a few nights in a row. When stuffy it is usually on one side, the low side. If I lay on my left, the left nostril is closed, and if on my right the right nostril is closed. It takes only a couple of minutes for the plug to shift sides. I do not have pain, and I think that is an indication of an infection. I suggest you see you doctor about the congestion - may be a specialist ENT.
Avatar m tn In the front of my head and over the top part of the head and my sinuses stop draining. Since then I have had two MRI's and a cat scan. The finding are Empty Sella and Minimal Paranasel Sinus Desease and mild mucosal thickening in some of the Paranasal Sinuses. I still have the top head pressure/headache and no or very little sinus drainage. I went to see a ENT specialist at National Jewish and he looked down my nose with a camera scope and found nothing.
Avatar n tn I have tried cortizone and avena creams as well as some over the counter anti itch lotions which have not helped. I have been recently using detergent for his clothes, tide for sensitive skin and he washes with dove soap. He gets seasonal allergies usually in the fall and spring which sometimes causes a really bad cough. He has to use inhalers during those periods of time. My question is that I am not sure if this is eczema because there is never a rash or anything diffrent with his skin.
Avatar m tn The legs and arms are covered with what look like insect bites 5-10 mm in size and scratched open in the center. The worst areas are on the back of the upper thigh where the skin is red and thickened 10 cm in size. Basically dry but will weep either blood or clear liquid. The child cannot concentrate and is a slave to the effects of the itching. The Allergist says no specific strong allergy was found just the usual (Dust, pollen etc) but none severe.
Avatar n tn I am not a medical doctor, and have no knowledge of the subject except my own experience. My opinion should NOT be taken as trained medical advice. I have been using over-the-counter Curel Intesive Care from Wal-mart for about 6 months now to effectively keep my SD at bay. Curel is good because it is dermatologist tested for use on the face. I have to apply it once a day, usually in the mornings.
Avatar f tn You may also find that adding some menthol crystals, or eucalyptus oil, to the water, helps to ease your symptoms of catarrh. 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. You can also OTC antihistaminics like Benadryl or zyrtec for some days and see if they provide relief or not.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn To your question I can only say I agree you should expect some improvement, but I base that on general medical experience, not on the steps you have taken. Does the over-the-counter nasal sprays (e.g,. Afirin) help? In my case these sprays are very effective, but I can not use them on a regular basis. I will check further with my PC doctor and perhaps get a recommendation on an ENT. I look forward to reading on your progress to a cure.
Avatar f tn He or she may recommend over-the-counter medications such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Claritin (loratadine), or prescription medicines such as a daily nasal steroid, such as Flonase (fluticasone), Rhinocort AQ (budesonide), Nasonex (mometasone furoate), or Beconase (beclomethasone), or a leukotriene inhibitor, such as Singulair (montelukast sodium).
Avatar m tn She had also gone 2 months earlier and had negative results. The doctor said it was most likely a fungus and told me to get some over the counter clotrimazole cream 1% and use it twice a day for a week. The redness went down a little bit, but the slight itch did not go away, and the area was becoming wet. I used it for a week then stopped as he had instructed. The redness came back.

Avatar n tn I was not wearing underwear at the time and my penis was raked across the metal zipper of my pants causing a serious abrasion and/or a small laceration to the skin. I tried treating the area over time with several over the counter topicals including alcohol, witch hazel, hydrocortisone, neosporin and gold bond triple antibiotic ointment with no improvement. I also tried exposing the area to air as much as possible, as I notice that the skin frequently covers over the injuried area.
Avatar m tn To your point my doctors (different for different prescriptions) have not expressed any concern about my long term use of either of these prescriptions - but both (all) advise against using the over the counter 12 hour stuff, such as Afrin in the USA, which are very effective. I use the Afrin once or twice a week to get a better night rest. In fact I've used it the last two nights, so it back to sleeping with congestion. I have not consulted an ENT yet.
Avatar m tn Latex- this causes him the swelling of the hands and th Penicilline, (the doctors are in doubt whether it does cause the allergy) His IgE total is 2200 . The doctors have proposed an anti-IGE treatment (XOLAIR) Do you think it is a good choice? The doctors have done a biopsy to the child and they have detected eosonophils in stomach. They told us that all this is due to the food he eats. So I need to eliminate the food from the child.
Avatar n tn In the day I use topical prescription Fluticasone Propionate Cream for the bad spots and then put regular over the counter 1% Hydrocortisone cream every where else except face. Benedryl Gel on the cheeks helps. Keep everything away from the eyes. The Atarax helps from the inside out so the itchy eyes are soothed with the medication. All the moisturizing OH mentions above in her post also a must and really helps. It's just constant maintenance any way you can.
Avatar f tn Guess I am getting off "easy" but I too have nasal congestion problems and find the over-the-counter decongestant 12 hour stuff works great. I use it more than 3 nights in a row and try to use saline spray regullary... I also have a prescription nose spray: fluticasone propionate which I used twice a day. The first 30 days of that only that seemed to help, then it seemed to help less and less, the over the counter stuff works.
Avatar f tn they said they wanted to see me immediately if any of the mucus membranes became inflamed. also none of the over-the-counter stuff had any effect on the rashes. at 42 weeks i still occasionally use the chlobetasol, a powerful steroid cream, to keep the rash under control. the dermatologist said the if i don't the rash could spread. if i had it to do all over again i might use the vic instead of the incivek.
612551 tn?1450025775 It appears to be some swelling and may be related to an allergy, but it occurs even when I am away from home and sleeping in a hotel, so I assume it is not an allergy to something in my house/bedroom. The over the counter sinus sprays, like Afirin really clear me up, and I often use that once a day before bedtime. I also have a prescription spray (I can look it up if this post gets some responses) which helps not not as much as the Afirin.
242516 tn?1368227505 They work by stopping the spread of the virus and if you take the antiviral too late, it's too late to stop the spread, it's already happened. Here are some guidelines on helping differentiate between run of the mill colds and more serious bacterial infections: When do I need antibiotics for a cold, as an adult? Never. Are you sick with a runny nose, sore throat, cough, possibly even goey green and brown stuff coming out?
Avatar m tn The dermatologists have said they have no idea what to do next. We have tried EVERY over the counter medication, special baths, laundry detergents to no change. I welcome ANY suggestions...
Avatar m tn He has me wash with the Head and Shoulders and then use over the counter hydrocortisone on it. It never fully goes away and I'm alwys red faced. But the ritual he has me do does keep it somewhat under control. Even if you think the rash is gone you have to keep doing the ritual or it will come r ight back. Mouse P.S. Make sure you talk to your do and he says it's o.k. to do this ritual. I do know it has helped quite a few people.
