A 37-year-old male asked:
Can a decongestant like Mucinex (guaifenesin) and a steroid nasal spray like fluticasone taken too much over time cause loss of smell and taste?

Mucinex (guaifenesin): Is not a nasal decongestant. It is same as Guaifenesin or plain Robitussin which is a mucolytic or expectorant. Chronic nasal congestion can make you lose sense of taste and smell, and likely not the medicines.
