What are the possible side effects of long term use of sudafed pe and rhinocort together with alcohol?
Mild typically: Like any nasal cortisone spray, nose bleeds are the most common side effect but these can be limited by proper nasal spray technique. Also, run-off down back of throat can lead to cough and sore throat. At usual doses, the other side effects listed for steroids are very, very uncommon. An allergist or ENT physician can assist in treatment recommendations. ...Read more
Considered safe: It is a category b drug: no harm seen in animal studies, no available data in human first trimester, and no evidence of fetal harm in 2nd or 3rd. If your allergic symptoms are intolerable then rhinocort is a good nasal steroid to use. Sometimes trying nasal saline rinses and washes ie:nettie pot is enough to provide relief that you may not need the rhinocort. Speak with your allergist re: options. ...Read more
Will aiming rhinocort aqua away from the perforation in my nasal septum reduce the likelihood of complications?
I currently use rhinocort aqua for nasal allergies, it is so expensive, and nasonex (mometasone) doesn't work for me. Any other options?
Can help: If you have eustachian tube dysfunction (problems equalizing ear pressure) those meds can sometimes help. Sudafed is not a good medication for long term use, however, especially if you have high blood pressure or a heart problem. Discuss with your doctor or ent. Those medicines will generally not affect balance problems or hearing loss which is not due to fluid build up on the ear. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Have a perforated septum, recently prescribed rhinocort aqua nasal spray, worried it'll make my condition worse. Should i be worried?
Yes: Nasal septal perforations are a problem. They crust and bleed easily. Unfortunately using a nasal spray can sometimes aggravate the situation even though you angle the spray away from the perforation. You might be better to try to get the perforation fixed. If the perforation is small fixing it is relatively easy. Seek an experienced ENT physician who will be able to advise you in more detail. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I use the RHINOCORT spray but every time I step outside my nose and eyes pour. this happens all year long, every season. do I need something else?
Both good: Both mometasone and rhinocort are good nasal sprays for allergic rhinitis symptoms. They will both give you relief. They are both aqueous preparations which are thought to be gentle on a dry nose. The only thing different is the potency of the steroid in them, and I believe they are pretty comparable. ...Read more

Yes: But would advise against use of topical Acyclovir (zovirax). It will not shorten the herpetic outbreak or minimize your symptoms. The value is that it reduces viral shedding and therefore transmissability to others, but at the cost of potentially inducing resistance so that if and when you need systemic therapy it will be less effective. ...Read more

Fexofenadine: Tough to say which is safest and if any can contribute to sezures in your daughter, but fexofenadine (allegra) does not cross the blood brain barrier. That is the reason it does not cause drowsiness. And because it does not cross the blood brain barrier, it likely has limited ability to contribute to your daughters seizures. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

An evaluation to identify cause is warranted,;and necessary to guide a targeted treatment strategy that may consist of prescription medication to decongest, relieve inflammation, or treat infection. A structural sinus problem may require surgical correction. ...Read more
