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?

Which is better for nasal allergies: nasacort or flonase?

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?

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

Nasonex, nasacort aq or flonase, which quicker for nasal congestion/ seasonal allergies? I also nasal colloidal silve-nott o2 binding, will that work

Nasonex, 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. ...Read more
