Maybe: Most common side-effect is irritation of nasal lining. This can be minimized by orienting the nozzle toward the ear on the same side as the nostril, i.e. Spray out, away from septum, toward ear on same side. The spray then falls on the "turbinates, " 3 folds on the outer wall of the nose halfway between the nostril and the ear that swell to block the passage and make mucus to cause post-nasal drip. ...Read more

Im taking beconase steriod nasal spray i still have a blockednose at night can I take sudafed nasal spray aswell?
Perhaps: but not for more than 5 days consecutively. Be sure to aim Beconase (beclomethasone) towards the outside wall of the nose and see if it helps. We often add an antihistamine spray also if the Beconase (beclomethasone) does not work well enough after having used it for more than 5 days. See an allergist if none of the above worked. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not systemic: All topical steroids may have the side effects of occasional nose bleeds and irritation or burning. But the use of a topical nasal steroid is virtually without any systemic side effects. Make sure that you are using this spray for either allergic rhinitis or non-allergic rhinitis. A blocked runny nose can also be symptomatic of nasal polyps. ...Read more
Im taking beconase steriod spray for a nasal infection can I still use sudafed nasal spray at the same time?
Yes: Beconase is a topical steroid and as such is not used for an infection but for allergy or non-allergy inflammation. It has little systemic absorption and there fore you can use sudafed as well. But sudafed is a tablet and I am not sure it is a nasal spray. But its mode of action is totally different than Beconase and you can use it. It sounds like you have nasal allergy so allergy visit next. ...Read more
