Which is better for nasal allergies: nasacort (triamcinolone) or flonase?

Which is better for nasal allergies: nasacort (triamcinolone) 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 (triamcinolone) is tasteless and odorless and has been available without a prescription since spring 2014. ...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?

?: 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

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

Local issues: Biggest side effect is nasal inflammation and bleeding. To minimize this, when you put the sprayer in your nose angle the tip to the outside corner of your eye. This will direct the spray away from your septum and decrease irritation. ...Read more

What will happen if I have a Flonase overdose?

What will happen if I have a Flonase overdose?

Overdose of flonase?: I don't know how someone overdoses on Flonase unless you sprayed the entire bottle in your nose. You will very likely have a bloody nose, dryness of the nose and mouth, headache, irritation, possibly decreased sense of smell. Hey...Let's not try this and find out. Follow the directions of your doctor. ...Read more
