Nasonex and nasacort

Common Questions and Answers about Nasonex and nasacort


Avatar n tn My concern also stems from the fact that I have seen Beconase refered to for allegies/hayfever etc but for the treatment of Polyps the name Nasacort or its generic name is usually refered to. Is Beconase as good as Nascort and is it appropriate treatment for the prevention of Polyps or should I be complaining to my surgery and demanding to remain on Nasacort?
Avatar n tn Now its been almost three months and the pain persists. I am a professional singer and i i have noticed that whenver i sing or listen to music the pain worsens. However; if i dont sing or listen to music the pain is very less. almost un feelable. I may highlight that i had my audiometery done and nothing abnormal was observed apart from that the pressure in my left ear( the ear which has pain) is slightly changed.
Avatar n tn I have ear, nose and throat redness and experiencing dizzy spells and blurred vision. I just got told today by the doc that it's vertigo. I'm no doctor, but he's put me on Nasacort Nasal Spray (you have to get a prescription from the doc). It's very different from otrivin, so don't use that unless your doc says to.
Avatar n tn Hi, 'If you have one or more small polyps, your doctor is likely to prescribe a corticosteroid nasal spray such as fluticasone (Flonase), triamcinolone (Nasacort), budesonide (Rhinocort), flunisolide (Nasarel) or mometasone (Nasonex). These medications relieve inflammation, increase nasal airflow and may help shrink polyps.' 'Treatment for nasal polyps may also involve surgery. When medications aren't effective, your doctor may recommend removing your polyps.

Avatar n tn Nose bleeds are a common side effect so a different brand may help better. Others are ayamys, nasacort, or nasonex, plus many others. Nasal rinsing using a neti pot or neil med sinus rinse may also help flush out anything that is in your sinuses and there is a much lower risk of bleeding since there is no medication, it's just pure saline.

Avatar n tn The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue. 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.
428185 tn?1203745389 I have prescription Nasacort, I use Nasalcrom when Nasacort doesn't work - which is often, but Nasalcrom also often doesn't work - and I use a eucalyptus/menthol spray, which feels good and seems to work. My doctor prescribed Nasonex (he uses it himself, and I've read it's stronger), but I'm leery because it's expensive like Nasacort and may not work any better. Nasacort is so costly in the US (I think about $80) that I've ordered it from Canada for one-third the price.
Avatar n tn I have been taking Alavert (just in case it might be alergy related), Aciphex (just in case it might be related to my gastritis condition) and antibiotics (just in case it might be an infection of sorts), and I still use the albuterol inhaler and Nasacort if I feel the need. Im even trying some different teas to see if they might help at all. What I have noticed is that I do happen to have some phlegm build up, but no associtated cough and I think that might be the root of the problem.
Avatar f tn I use Xyzal, Nasacort AQ, Symbicort and a rescue medication as needed.
Avatar f tn I have taken Rhinocort, Nasacort, Nasonex, Flo-nase, albuterol inlaler, Xopenex inhaler, Allegra, Zyrtec, allegra- D, Clairitin, Clarinex, Mucofin, Mucofin-D, Mucinex, Mucinex-D, Expectorant store brands etc.etc.....And the whole acid-reflux thing, thats just a shot in the dark. I have had that and it is nothing even close. Nothing worked. I have recently been readin up on Aurveda. Indian medicine. I dont know much yet - but they seem to be on the right track.
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 He said it was nasal allergies and gave me nasacort and, of course, something for acid reflex. I have been completely miserable since October of 2005. I thought I was allergic to the Christmas tree ( we get a real tree every year, and this never happened before) and I rushed my daughter to take it out this time. I have been on most of the meds you all have and yet I still had that unbelievable lump of mucus and drip and cough and on and on.
Avatar n tn Apparently a combination of Astelin, Atrovent, and Rhinocort/Flonase/Nasonex used in a nebulizer can work wonders for this condition. It is my understanding that the mix of medications is turned into a fine mist that you breathe in through your nose for roughly ten minutes. I think that the theory is that this method delivers the medication to areas that nasal sprays miss.
Avatar n tn But that stopped before I saw the chiro. I started this in July. I am now on Singulair (30 days now) (prescription) and NasaCort (over the counter), using the saline rinses, and air cleaner in my bedroom. Had my furnace cleaned, my carpets cleaned. As long as I stay away from odors of any kind, aerosols, candles, won't be around cigarettes, I seem to do better. So my suggestion is try to rule out some things.
Avatar n tn I'm on 4,000mg of amoxacillin a day ( if I take zithromax i have to take 3 courses in a row, biaxin-same, tequin-2 courses and that's just about the last stop before cipro, I wasn't joking when I said I don't get colds, I get siiiiccck!!!) I'm on nasonex and nasacort, giufenex, and vicoprofen for that damn headache I always seem to get once a month. Road2recovery and I traded pics earlier this morn. Pretty huh? And her girls are absolutely GORGEOUS!!! xoxo- D.
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone else suffers from non-allergic rhintis. I think I have this. I get about 2 weeks every month, when my nose gets all stuffy. I get post nasal drip, my ears feel plugged and sometimes I get dizzy. I have seen an ENT, but she said I was "all better". I think stress is agrevating it again. I had allergy tests done- and everything was negative, so I know it is not allergies. I think it might be hormone/stress related.
Avatar dr m tn Allegra (which should be coming out over-the-counter soon), nasal steroid sprays (Flonase, Nasonex, Rhinocort, Nasacort, Veramyst), and Singulair. Astelin is an antihistamine nasal spray. Different people respond differently to each of these medications, so it’s important to talk to your doctor about which one may be right for you.
Avatar n tn I had surgery last December, and now suffering once again with congestion and pain. ENT says polyp tissue has returned and now on Leviquin, did the Prednisone 6day pack. Has anyone had to go thru the surgery more than once?
Avatar n tn Yes, that is another thing I hate, I also get allergies with nasal congestion and used to take Zyrtec D and Nasonex which helped a lot, but now I can't take that I do not think. I am going to ask my Endo Friday and let him tell me exactly what I can take. I will be so glad to get the treatment on this hyperthyroid rolling and I am even looking forward to RAI if I have to take it. I know hypo is no walk in the park either but I had still rather be hypo than hyper.
Avatar f tn She used her inhaler and allergy medicine throughout the winter that year. The following summer and the year following she had no asthma symptoms. Last winter she starting having symptoms again which was a usually a cough that led to respiratory infection. If we caught the cough early enough with her inhaler (xopenex) and allergy med (zyrtec) we could avoid the infections. We made it all summer with no problems or use of meds.
Avatar n tn I have asthma also, so in addition to Singulair, Advair, Nasacort and Astelin sprays, I was also taking Alegra-D and Claritin -D every day for over 9 years. My husbands doctor mentioned that taking Claritin -D every day was not good since it could have some negative effects after a while. I decided not to take it and ~ 2 weeks later I started to get my sense of smell back. I COULD SMELL AGAIN AFTER ALMOST 10 YEARS!
Avatar f tn We continue use of the Dexamethasone drops, once daily in each ear, and she also uses Nasonex steroid nasal spray once daily in each nostril. We have also removed all carpeting from our home, for her dustmite allergy, and use a dust mite cover on her mattress. We are hoping that this will help with her sinusitis. She still uses a hearing aid for her hearing loss in her ear, and other than the sinusitis and the eczema, has no other medical health problems.
Avatar dr m tn Nitric oxide is lethal to bacteria and viruses and is also known to increase oxygen absorption in your lungs from 10-25 percent. This is why it's important to inhale through your nose, especially when you are exercising. Your smell and taste buds are connected. If you can't breathe well through your nose, then your sense of smell will suffer, which means that your sense of taste will be altered as well. This can lead to appetite and weight issues.
Avatar n tn Her hope is that with the combination of the inflammation-reducing properties of Singulair and Nasacort, after six months we can take me off the meds and see if my system has re-stabilized and no longer needs meds. We'll see what happens. Best of luck to everyone.
Avatar f tn I was like this for 19 months after the coblation procedure and then I caught a cold here at Thanksgiving and I am still have problems w/the swelling and it is February 2008. I have been on Amox 875 and Cipro 500 two times now along w/two prednisone packs since the end of November 2007. The antibiotics seem to work somewhat but then I am right back where I started from. it is like my turbinates are infected. It seems I was fine until I caught that cold that turned into an infection.
211563 tn?1189998110 grasses, pollens, dust, mold, animal dander...rofl...I have 5 cats...oh well..also take lots of benadryl and use nasacort daily....tested slightly allergic to lots of foods, but I would have to give up eating altogether if I eliminated all of them! potatoes, chicken, pork, rice, wheat, sheesh..there would be nothing I just muddle through....used to do allergy shots...gave up on that **** after over 20 years...
Avatar f tn He did put me on Alvesco (160 ug).Still continued the Zyrtec, Singulair and Astelin and Nasacort. He advised for a CT scan if things did not get better. This September I had Several SOB attacks and I was struggling for breath for 15 days in a row. Upon visit to the ER the doc saw all my reports and gave me anxiety medication . I saw an ENT spec. and he ordered a CT scan of the sinuses and chest . I also saw a pulmunary doc who did an X ray for my chest (which was normal).
Avatar n tn I went back to the allergist (same one, my mistake) and he prescribed me advair which just made me jittery and Nasonex. No help with these either. I finally tried another Allergist and he ruled out asthma. Now I am taking Protonix (similar to Nexium) for GERD. Apparently GERD can and does cause asthma. I found several articles on it.
