Not Likely: While Flonase does list upper respiratory tract infections as a possible side effect, this occurs only rarely in real practice. The amount of actual steroid you get with Flonase is about 1/5 of a milligram per day. This is usually not enough to cause problems with infections or immune suppression. ...Read more

Is it safe to use Advair and Flonase together? Can they cause you to be shaky or nauseated? I worry about side effects due to sensitivities.

Yes but: if you are taking high-dose Advair , the additive effective of Flonase may theoretically add to the steroid effects leading to a slightly higher risk of cataract. In practice, I have yet seen this problem. The long acting bronchodilator(LABA) portion of Advair can cause shakiness. Ask your doctor to see if a trial with leukotriene modifier may be considered in place of LABA ...Read more

How long does it take for side effects from fluticasone to subside after u discontinue use. I have used it a month or so and experience ear congestion?

Side effects: If this is strictly a side effect of the medication, I would hope that as the medication comes out of your system, the effects will go away as well. The half life of the medication is 11-12hrs. So five half lifes before it is more or less out of your system, so roughly 60 hours, I would say fluticasone is out of your system. If there is some suppression on the adrenal axis, this may take more time ...Read more

What are the side effects of advair diskus (salmeterol and fluticasone) and is it safe to use for 6 months or more?

What are the side effects of advair diskus (salmeterol and fluticasone) and is it safe to use for 6 months or more?

Safe to use : Advair contains fluticasone, a steroid, and salmeterol, a long acting bronchodialtor. Any inhaled steroid can cause thrush so be sure to rinse your mouth well after use. I've also seen hoarseness with advair, especially if one does not inhale forcefully. Salmeterol can cause leg cramps at night. Regular use of advair is much safer than the alternative of episodic use of oral steroids. ...Read more
