I'm currently using avamys fluticasone furoate nasal spray. Is there a side effect from using this n how long can I use it safely?

Steroid nasal spray: Nasal sprays containing small doses of corticosteroids are a mainstay of allergy treatment and are generally very safe when used as directed. The most frequent side effects are nasal irritation and nosebleeds. The latter are suspected to occur with nasal yeast infections. These are not usually serious and improve with taking a break in medication use and with using salt water sprays; irrigation. ...Read more

Bad Allergies: Based on your listed meds, you must have very bad allergies and/ or asthma. Occasionally, doctors have to prescribe a cocktail of medication to get you out of an acute crisis. However, this is usually for a short duration that you'll need so many meds. Discuss longterm plan for managing your allergies/ asthma with your doctor or request to see an allergist/ immunologist for further management. ...Read more

Which of these nasal sprays is more effective for allergy, (flixotide) or (avamys) and when to use it, advance thanks!

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 more

Yes: Salt water nasal sprays are helpful for patients with nasal allergies and sinus disease. The thought is that the saline rinse will help "was away" some of the inflammatory mediators and improve one's nasal symptoms. Nasal saline is also a mild decongestant. ...Read more

Saline rinse: Consider adding a nasal saline rinse before you apply the nasal steroid at night. It will clear out any allergens and clean the nasal mucosa so the steroid can work better. hope this helps! ...Read more

Unexpected: It is not an expected side effect from using nasal steroid. Nonetheless you need to stop using it and ask your doctor to check your spraying technique and perhaps try a nasal antihistamine spray. I am also concerned as to whether you are having a severe sinus infection at the left as well. ...Read more

Possibly: First make sure that you are using your nasal spray correctly by aiming the spout towards the side and not the center of the nasal cavity. Aiming the spray direct-center may cause headaches. However dizziness is unexpected and may be from sinusitis or other factors. You need to talk to your doctor about these new symptoms. ...Read more
