I am taking regular allegra (fexofenadine) 24 hours along with flonase and eye drops.  Not getting much relief....is it safe to also take zyrtec d or sudafed d?

It is safe to take: sudafed,but not zyrtec and allegra (fexofenadine) together-only 1 or the other. I would try zyrtec, it is stronger than allegra (fexofenadine). No decongestants if you have high blood pressure. No zyrtec D and sudafed together, as they both contain decongestants. Use zyrtec plain. ...Read more

I take Flonase for sinus but left side still feels pressure that's goes to my eye and head. Really uncomfortable. Cause? What can I do?

Sinusitis: If Flonase hasn't relieved the symptoms, you may have a blocked sinus and need to see a physician. Osteopathic physicians can sometimes check to see if it is related to poor motion within the facial bones from an injury as well as prescribe antibiotics if it is an infection. ...Read more

I've been taking Flonase for a week my eyes keep twitching is there a connection? What are possible reasons for eye twitching?

I've been taking Flonase for a week my eyes keep twitching is there a connection? What are possible reasons for eye twitching?

Eye twitching: I'm an ENT and I've never heard of nasal steroid spray causing this, but that doesn't mean it's not possible - just very unlikely. Eye twitching can be due to nervousness, vitamin or mineral deficiency (like calcium or Vit. D), nervous tic, 'blepharospasm,' or a neurologic condition. It might just be transient spasms that go away without good reason. A neurologist can resolve it. ...Read more

Can Flonase cause a floater in your eye?. Or is allergies more likely the cause of it?. I've just started having issues with allergies this year.

Can Flonase cause a floater in your eye?. Or is allergies more likely the cause of it?.  I've just started having issues with allergies this year.

Not expected: A few small floaters may be ok but if you are noticing new ones popping up or large ones coming on, you need to call your eye doctor immediately. Allergy per se is not associated with floaters and unless you have overdosed on Flonase, systemic effect is not expected. If you have high myopia and are noticing floaters, an eye exam is also called for ASAP. ...Read more

I have severe dry eyes from Sjogrens I also have allergies i find Zyrtec (cetirizine) way to drying. Does Flonase have the same drying effect as other allergy meds?

No: It is a corticosteroid and it will help the allergies as it is antiinflammatory. It does not drying like the antihistamines. You can discuss this with your physician. ...Read more

My daughter has yellow gook in her eyes and they are also watery. She does have allergies which she takes Flonase and an inhaler for! is the yellow discharge caused by allergies as welll? And if so what can I give her?

Antihistamine: Although discharge from allergies is usually clear/watery, there can be some yellow/thicker appearance to it. Both eyes is more suggestive of allergy than infection. Consider over the counter antihistamine like zyrtec or Claritin (loratadine) for children. If it worsens, or the lids are matted together then an antibiotic drop may be needed. If the allergies cont. To bother, antihistamine drops can be rx'd. ...Read more

Why even on routine of Allegra (fexofenadine) and Flonase are itchy eyes harder to treat than any other hay fever symptom? Do I need RX eye drops?

Why even on routine of Allegra (fexofenadine) and Flonase are itchy eyes harder to treat than any other hay fever symptom? Do I need RX eye drops?

Conjunctivitis: Everyone responds to allergies differently, but persistent eye symptoms refactory to over-the-counter eyedrops might benefit from a prescription grade preparation. Make sure that you are practicing good avoidance measures, avoiding overuse of contacts when eyes are irritated, and washing eyes out with preservative-free drops. If you have persistent symptoms see an Allergist for further workup. ...Read more

Is it safe to take Claritin-D, Flonase & motrin for sinusitis symptoms? Congestion in 1 nostril w/ head/ear/jaw/behind eye ache for 2 weeks.

Is it safe to take Claritin-D, Flonase & motrin for sinusitis symptoms? Congestion in 1 nostril w/ head/ear/jaw/behind eye ache for 2 weeks.

Ocular Hypertension?: If you have eye pain, the Flonase (fluticasone propionate), an intranasal steroid, might be causing a steroid responsive intraocular pressure elevation and risk for glaucomatous optic atrophy plus the risk for cataract. Have your eye pressure checked with and without Flonase use, and get a baseline visual field study if you must use intranasal steroids on a chronic basis. ...Read more

Pressure in head and dizziness past 2 months. MRI results say severe inflammation nasal turbinates. Dr prescribed Flonase. I get really bad panic a. H?

Sinus inflammation: If your chronic headaches are related to the MRI result suggestive of sinus inflammation (it is not a sure thing, the MRI is not diagnostic in your case), then flonase is not likely to be of much benefit in the short term. Ask to see an Allergist or ENT for better plan to obtain more immediate relief. ...Read more

Sinus is only mild: Headache pain from sinus obstruction can be associated with acute sinusitis +/- allergic nasal inflammation that worsens with barometric pressure from weather changes. Such discomfort responds easily to decongestants and is rarely moderate or severe; in such cases look for other causes: neck strain, eye issues, variation of migraine or tension headaches, etc. A brain Ct or MRI may be indicated. ...Read more

I took fluticasone propionate and now my eye hurts. Are there any side effects of taking fluticasone propionate that I should be aware of?

High mold exposure when cleaning.  Allergic to mold. 1 wk increasing sinus/chest congestion, itching nose/eyes/throat.  Antihistamine?  Fluticasone?

Yes: Both can give you some symptomatic relief. Avoiding the exposure is primary and if it is in a home it is best to move if you are highly sensitive. Check out www.mhpvitamins.com, Inc. as they have a homeopathic for this. ...Read more

What's better than flonase?

All about the same: All of the topical steroids have about equal efficacy (activity) and safety. I do not think changing from Flonase to another topical steroid will significantly change your nasal function. Remember, these drugs are specifically used for allergic and non-allergic rhinitis. Check with an allergist. Finally, although these topical steroids are about the same, some people do prefer a particular one. ...Read more
