Has anyone used astelin nasal spray?

Yes: I prescribe it to my patients quite often. I recommend it for patients that have allergic rhinitis and/or nasal congestion - often in conjunction with a nasal steroid spray. Together, they can work quite well for nasal symptoms of rhinitis. ...Read more

I have nasonex (mometasone) and astelin (nasal spray) but I am not sure wich one will be the best for sinus congestion. Please suggest me which one to take.

They are different: The best first line treatment should include saline nasal irrigation and nasal steroid spray. The steroid spray is long acting and takes affect over the first few weeks of use. The steroid spray helps decrease long term nasal inflammation. Astelin is a topical antihistamine ( like claritin) and can be used in conjunction for symptomatic relief. ...Read more

Can you tell me about post nasal drip and azelastine and fluticasone?

Can you tell me about post nasal drip and azelastine and fluticasone?

See Below: Post nasal drip is most often caused by allergies, although there is a syndrome called non-allergic rhinitis that can sometimes cause it. Flonase treats allergic inflammation which will reduce stuffiness and drainage. Azelastine will treat drainage, sneezing, itching, and it treats the non-allergic rhinitis if it's there as well. ...Read more

Is azelastine and fluticasone effective for post nasal drip?

Is azelastine and fluticasone effective for post nasal drip?

Probably: If the post nasal drip is caused by allergy, this is a very effective combination. However, it is most likely caused by some degree of chronic sinusitis; if mild, the meds will work, but if you have severe chronic sinusitis, they may not. This combination is a very reasonable place to start, but be sure to followup with your doctor if it's not helping within 2-4 weeks. ...Read more

See allergist: If your symptoms have not responded to Veramyst and Azelastine, you should consult an allergist (who has also completed training in internal medicine and/or pediatrics) to find out whether the problem is an allergic one. If so, help you out on avoidance measures and guide you on the treatment. Reflux disease can also lead to a sensation and sinus infection the presence of post-nasal drips. ...Read more

Can azelastine Hcl nasal solution be used at the same time as ipratropium bromide nasal solution?

Can azelastine Hcl nasal solution be used at the same time as ipratropium bromide nasal solution?

It depends: What are you treating? They each act in different ways, and sometimes both are used simultaneously. You may want to separate the usage of each one during the day, to ensure you don't end up with too much solution in your nose that simply drips away. Using them at separate times can ensure proper absorption into your nose. ...Read more

The dr. Prescribed azelastine and fluticasone nasal sprays. 1. Can I use both at the same time? 2. If not, how long do I wait between each?

The dr. Prescribed azelastine and fluticasone nasal sprays.  1. Can I use both  at the same time?  2. If not, how long do I wait between each?

Yes!: I generally use the Astelin (azelastine) first, as it is a decongestant. Inhale gently, it tastes yucky, but works well! then do the fluticasone at night or a couple minutes after the astelin (azelastine). ...Read more
