Unlikely: The amount circulating in the blood stream from the corticosteroid in the nasal spray is unlikely to be high enough to trigger psychiatric effects. That being said, it is still possible, and I have seen it occur. However, just because you had an adverse reaction to orally administered steroids, e.g. Prednisone, doesn't mean you will have that same reaction to the much lower dose in nasal spray.
