Beconase Nose Spray
Is it safe to use "Beconase" Aqueous Nasal Spray for blocked/runny nose? Are there any side effects?
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.

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.

See an allergist if none of the above worked. ...Read more

I'm 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

I would also recommend increasing the Beconase (beclomethasone) to 2 sprays to each nostril twice daily for 2 weeks. ...Read more

See an ENT/allergist: Nose sprays contain drugs that are 1) stimulants and 2) cause rebound nasal congestion when they were off, leading to repeated and more frequent use of more and more, which do less and less. The treatment of nasal congestion is to treat the underlying condition causing it.
