Can Duonase help in treating nasal turbinate hypertrophy and nasal polyps?is duonase similar to Nasonex (mometasone)?
It may help: Topical nasal steroids may help your problem. They are all about the same. There is little difference between the efficacy and safety of Flonase and nasonex (mometasone). I do not think turbinate hypertrophy will be much effected unless you have nasal allergy. Nasal polyposis will be more effectively treated with oral steroids. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it safe to take Robitussin Cough + Chest Congestion DM while on Lexapro, (escitalopram) Synthroid, Zyrtec, Dymista Nasal Spray & Albuterol nebulizer?
Many meds: At your age (or anyone else for that matter) taking five medicines and wanting another one is not smart unless your doctor has told what medical problems you have. Having said that, if your doctor did prescribe those meds, over time the meds should be reduced. Please let me know what develops. ...Read more
About the same: Topical nasal steroids have about equal efficacy (activity) and safety. Flonase (fluticasone) and Nasonex (mometasone) are about the same. It depends on what your physician gets into the habit of using. Also some patients prefer one over the other because one of the two topical sprays is less irritating. There is little evidence that one is better than the other. ...Read more

I get really congested due to year round allergies. I can't tolerate the decongestants. Could i try a child's dose to see if it would help?
Avoid decongestants: In general, decongestants are not really effective long-term therapies for allergies. Generally, the effects of decongestants are to constrict blood vessels, throughout the body, which really does nothing to treat the causative problem, which is inflammation related to the allergen. Antihistamines, nasal steroids, allergen avoidance, and leukotriene antagonists are more effective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sick with severe congestion for three days. Had a temp up until tuesday but no longer have it. Still achy have a cough. Decongestants don't work?
Viral.....: This is likely a viral infection(perhaps flu) that will run its course over the next few days. For cough and chest congestion, see your doctor (since over the counter meds not working) as you may need bronchodilator and perhaps steroid inhalers to decrease bronchospasm that may be causing the cough. For nasal congestion, perhaps saline nasal spray (over the counter); see doctor if ineffective. ...Read more
Hello my favorite doctors! Just wondering if the clairitin that doesn't have the decongestant in it keepsyou awake as well? I've heard this complaint.
Unlikely: Claritin (loratadine) is considered a non-sedating antihistamine. By package insert it is associated with 7% sedation. Higher doses and taking medication that slows the metabolism of loratadine such as erythromycin, cimetidine (Tagamet) or ketoconazole can cause sedation even with 1 tablet. Rarely, it is an upper, but this is unusual. ...Read more

Yes and no: Hydromet contains both a cough suppressant and an agent that reduces mucous which may be exactly what you need but it won't unblock a stuffy nose so technically it's not a decongestant. Phenylephrine and Pseudoephedrine are the only oral decongestant ingredients available in the US. ...Read more
No.: Decongestants are vasoconstrictors. They get absorbed from the nose to the bloodstream causing rise in the pulse and blood pressure and vasoconstriction to the coronaries and the brain with possibility of stroke, heart attacks, cardiac arrhyhmias.
