I am regularly taking fluticasone spray and azalestine spray; i still wake up often with nasal blockages,any alternative solution pls without surgery?
Depends: Is the congestion from inflammation of the nasal turbinates or from hypertrophied (enlarged) turbinates. If they are inflamed, finding the cause would be best. For example: dust mite allergy, pet dander allergy, or from acid reflux at night? Treat the underlying cause or avoid the trigger. If they are hypertrophied then a turbinate reduction would help. Get checked for nasal polyps too. ...Read more

Is there any benefit from using otravin nasal spray and fluticasone to alleviate nasal turbinates hypertrophy?
Nose: Stay away from the OTC nasal sprays as they are addictive. Fluticasone is fine but takes three weeks to work. You need to look for a cause such as allergies.

Which of these nasal sprays is more effective for allergy, (flixotide) or (avamys) and when to use it, advance thanks!
Similar : Flixotide is Fluticasone Propionate (flonase in us) and avamys is Fluticasone Furoate (veramyst in us). The side chain of avamys steroid molecule makes it potentially more active so it binds to the receptor tighter and its effect may last longer. A person may have better results with avamys vs flixotide. These are the most effective treatment for allergies and best if started before allergy season. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
