Does Flonase Help Post Nasal Drip
I've had post nasal drip symptoms for about a week. When I lie down I cough. What can I do to treat this at home? I use Flonase can this hurt or help?
Post nasal drip is a term used to describe the common symptoms of sore throat and cough in the presence of a runny nose with sufferers experiencing a worsening of symptoms at night with mild relief during the day. Allergies or nasal/sinus infection cause excess mucous to "drip" into the throat when lying down resulting in congestion, irritation, and inflamation of ...Read more
I have tried just about everything for constant post nasal drip. I was taking nasacort (triamcinolone) for a while until I felt it wasn't helping. Would Flonase work?
See an ENT doctor: You probably have chronic sinusitis as well, nasal sprays alone might not help, see an ENT specialist or an Allergist, if have one in your area, goodluck
Allergy medicine&flonase has made a 80%improvement on how I've felt 4six months! But the mucus just won't stop! Post nasal drip gags me sometimes! Help?
I have had post-nasal drip for two years now and I have tried everything, flonase, claritin, (loratadine) zyrtec, cingulair. Nothing seems to work. What should I d?
See physician: Different potential causes for long-standing post nasal drip are numerous and several potential interventions exist that you have not tried. Discuss with a physician who can examine you (preferably an allergist or ent) to begin the pathway towards finding relief.
Something is causing post nasal drip and I can't figure out what it is. I have a pretty sever deviated septum. Just started flonase. Got air purifier.
I have post nasal drip after a cold I have been using Flonase mucinex (guaifenesin) and Allegra it's still horrible?
Deviated septum causing post nasal drip. Started Flonase and that isn't working. Got an air purifier that isn't working. It's affecting my breathing.
Post nasal drip: A deviated nasal septum most commonly causes nasal obstruction/stuffiness on one side. Post nasal drip can be related to mucus draining from the sinuses into the back of the throat from allergies or sinus infection. Flonase and other nasal steroids take several days to be really effective, but are the most effective treatment for allergies. An ENT or allergist may be able to sort things out.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm taking Nasonex (mometasone) for post nasal drip/cough and it helped a lot. Is there a cheaper alternative like nasacort or Flonase that I can take with zyrtec?
?: Chronic rhinosinusitis is what you have given your brief description, could be allergies, the good news is that you responded to treatment, you can look for cheaper generics, but u might need other medicines, so your best bet would be proper professional help, better by an Allergist/ENT specialist, or your PCP who would refer you if needed, check aaaai. Org or acaai. Org for an allergist in ur areaSee 1 more doctor answer
What is a natural, effective way to treat seasonal allergies? I've been taking Benadryl at night for post nasal drip. I'm also taking Flonase daily. I find my allergies are much worse in the evening.
Seasonal allergies: Most allergy symptoms become worse or act up at night, what you currently take isn't controlling your symptoms, and the post nasal drip can be due to sinusitis as well. You need to see an allergist for evaluation and better control of your symptoms, meanwhile: saline nasal washes, make sure you are using flonase right and use it daily, instead of benadryl, take cetirizine or loratadine daily too
How to I stop post nasal drip from aggravating my lungs & giving me asthma symptoms? I started Flonase & singulair (montelukast) and the mucus is still coming.
How do you treat a post nasal drip chronic cough/ no runny nose in a 6 year old. Have been giving Claritin and Flonase for 3 months with no relief.?
Depends: ARe you sure the chronic cough is due to post nasal drip? It could be caused by asthma or reflux. Also you may not be using the Flonase properly, make sure it is pointed outward toward ear and use consistently on a daily basis. Claritin might not be strong enough antihistamine. Have child checked by pediatrician or allergist.
Have had major post nasal drip recently alleviated by flonase. In the wake of a clear throat, there are a few small red bumps coating it. Painless.
Can allergic rhinitis w/ severe post nasal drip and painful swollen l-neck gland bring on high blood press. Prescription zyrtec, singulair, (montelukast) flonase, motrin?
Probably not: Allergic rhinitis is an immunological disease caused by mast cell degranulation and the release of mediators of inflammation, especially histamine. I suppose it is possible that mast cell inflammatory mediators could alter blood pressure. Also another possibility is anxiety caused by the presence of severe allergic response. In general most cases of hypertension are not caused by nasal allergy.
After successfully using Tamsulosin for years (BPH), its nasal congestion is no longer well controlled by Flonase. What are my alternatives?
ENT: Since alpha blocker drugs like tamsulosin cause nasal congestion by vasodilation (as opposed to the vasoconstriction of a decongestant) I can see no reason why nasal steroids would be particularly helpful with congestion solely due to this medication. I suggest you see an ENT or allergy physician for evaluation.
What can I do about nasal congestion/inflammation swelling? Is nasonex (mometasone) or Flonase the only treatment?
Inflamed nose: It is a good treatment but some individuals improve by avoiding irritants or allergens. Others benefit from intranasal saline or cromolyns (nasalchrom) or antihistamines (astelex or astepro). Lastly if your problem is due to chronic allergies rebuilding your immune system with specific immunotherapy is a good idea.
Nasal congestion, sneezing. Taking Flonase, antihistamine and pain relief. Looks like a big bump blocking nasal package. What could it be?
What causes chronic nasal congestion which responds to afrin but not astelin, flonase, or sinus rinses? Can surgery even work in a case like this?
Afrin (oxymetazoline) rebound: Afrin (oxymetazoline) causes severe narrowing of the blood vessels in the nose and thus the effect on decongestion. However prolonged constriction leads to decrease blood supply to the tissue and may lead to permanent damages. The nose also becomes less responsive to afrin (oxymetazoline) with prolonged use. Flonase counteracts inflammation and Astelin is an antihistamine and neither constricts the blood vessels.
Nasonex, (mometasone) nasacort aq or flonase, which quicker for nasal congestion/ seasonal allergies? I also nasal colloidal silve-nott o2 binding, will that work
Nasal sprays: All nasal steroids take a few days to start working and need to build up a dose before they become fully effective. Nasal antihistamines are quicker in onset of actiion. A combination nasal spray should help your symptoms for fast and long lasting relief. Now I don't know anything about the coooloidal silver spray you mentioned.
I have nose bleeds every morning, facial pain, & Nasal Congestion all year. I've been getting headaches too. I've tried RHINOCORT, Claritin, & flonase.
Not the right meds: This regimen may be adequate to treat mild to moderate nasal/sinus inflammation, but you are describing a more complicated issue. 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.
