Nasacort or flonase: which is better and has less severe side effects?

See a doctor: It is difficult to answer since I am unfamiliar with your medical history. I recommend seeing a doctor who knows your medical history so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms. ...Read more

I have tried just about everything for constant post nasal drip. I was taking nasacort 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 ...Read more

Which is better for nasal allergies: nasacort or flonase?

Equal: When it comes to nasal steroid sprays they are all effective and it typically becomes a "patient preference." Flonase smells like flowers and requires a doctors prescription (until spring 2015 when it goes over the counter). Nasacort is tasteless and odorless and has been available without a prescription since spring 2014. ...Read more

Im taking Nasonex 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 area ...Read more

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. ...Read more
