Is it ok to take fluticasone nasal spray a week and 2 days after it expired in nov 2019?

FDA says yes: There is a fair amount of evidence that medications stored properly, appear intact so it may be fine to take an allergy medication that's a month past its expiration date. Medications kept in a cool, dry place are likely to last longer.

I gave three sprays of fluticasone nasal spray accidentally in each of my kids nose who is 5 year old. Please let me know if it’s dangerous.

I gave three sprays of fluticasone nasal spray accidentally in each of my kids nose who is 5 year old. Please let me know if it’s dangerous.

Your kid will be ok: I'm assuming this was prescribed for some reason but either way any dose of fluticasone just once is unlikely to have deleterious effect. Nasal sprays, in general, should be avoided in kids if not prescribed. Decongestant sprays are addicting and cause worsening symptoms over time. Steroids such as fluticasone, disrupt hormonal balances and normal adrenal function if used regularly . ...Read more

Yes: Loratidine and fluticasone nasal spray are effective when used together. If this is not effective, adding an intranasal antihistamine (rx), such as azelastine (astelin) or olpatadine (patanase) is an option. Dymista is a combination of fluticasone and azelastine and works quickly. None of these products should adversely affect asthma or your current medications. ...Read more

I used fluticasone nasal spray caused me not to smell nose dry doc said nostrils swollen tried saltwater nose feels heavy air feels obstructed ?

See ENT: It is unusual for fluticasone to cause dryness in the nose. You need to make sure that you are aiming the spray towards the lateral side of the nose and not straight in. Consider trying other nasal steroid options. If the problem persists, see an ENT. If you were much older or have had turbinates reduced, then I would consider dryness as the issue and use saline spray instead. ...Read more
