If you are not diabetic and do not measure your blood sugar, there is no way to know. ...Read more

Please tell me can flunisolide and symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) be prescribed together for severe asthma?

Please tell me can flunisolide and symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) be prescribed together for severe asthma?

Yes generally: Albuterol is used as a 'rescue inhaler' for symptoms while on symbicort (budesonide and formoterol). Flunisolide nasal spray can be used at the same time, but please check with your physician.
Monitoring your peak flow and ACT score as well as avoiding triggers for your asthma are important aspects of your care. I would suggest having your total IgE checked as well. ...Read more

Dx w/ chronic sinusitis. Dr says try Zyrtec (cetirizine) & flunisolide 2 wks minimum & wait on allergy tests. F/u appt in May. Meds not helping after 5 days.

Dx w/ chronic sinusitis. Dr says try Zyrtec (cetirizine) & flunisolide 2 wks minimum & wait on allergy tests. F/u appt in May. Meds not helping after 5 days.

Call doc again: If you have sinusitis which has not responded to flunisolide after 5 days, you likely need an antibiotic now. I don't see how the finding from allergy test would alter your current treatment (for long term, likely yes). In the meanwhile try saline irrigation on the sinuses. ...Read more

I have a nose spray with Flunisolide 0.125mg and Oxymetazoline 0.25mg....can I also use Azelastine HCI at the same time?

I have a nose spray with Flunisolide 0.125mg and Oxymetazoline 0.25mg....can I also use Azelastine HCI at the same time?

Nasal sprays: Flunisolide is a nasal steroid and it safe to use on a daily basis. Oxymetazoline is a nasal decongestant and it is not meant for every day use. You should not exceed using that for more than three days. You risk severe rebound nasal congestion. Azelastine is a nasal antihistamine and does not interact adversely with the other medications that you are taking. It also can be used on a daily basis. ...Read more

May need abx: Chronic sinusitis requires more intensive and prolonged antibiotic treatment often accompanied by a short course of steroid. Even then, the result is about 50% successful. Call your doctor again and perhaps consider seeing an ENT specialist/allergist re. The problem. ...Read more

What is best pain medication?

There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain.
