How Long For Nasacort To Unswell Nasal Pasages
I am experiencing nasal congestion (stuffiness) due to seasonal allergies. Is it ok to take nasocort in the am and pm. It is not lasting long enough.
Roughly Equal: Either of these sprays are fine for allergies. They both work the same way. Nasacort (triamcinolone) is available over the counter which means you do not need a prescription. It is also scent and alcohol free so it is easier on the nose. Flonase is very effective, but does contain alcohol and some scent which does irritate some noses. ...Read more
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
Aqueous: Refers to a water based solution in contrast to a dry powder or aerosol spray ...Read more
I have had post nasal drip for months I am taking nasacort (triamcinolone) I don't thinking it is working anymore what would you recommend taking claritn to?
You can add Claritin at any time.
I have found that many of my patients who fail to improve on nasal steroids have not been using it consistently. It may take several days for it to even start working. Use the full dose according to the label. If no improvement after a week or two then it's likely that allergy is not the main cause of your symptoms and that should be addressed. ...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?
Is Nasacort (triamcinolone) spray for nasal allergies safe to be taken regularly? If not, what is the alternative nasal spray for regular use?
Nasal steroids: Nasocort is a nasal steroid, now available over the counter, that many people safely use for prolonged periods of time to treat their allergy symptoms. Be sure to read the package insert and stop the spray if you experience any side effects, but you will likely be able to use it with your Claritin without problems. ...Read more
I'm taking Nasonex (mometasone) 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
Have had chronic allergies since I was young. I have acid reflux and post nasal drip pretty bad. Started prilosec, and nasacort (triamcinolone). Anything else to add?
Avoidance measures: In addition to a daily intranasal steroid spray like Nasacort, (triamcinolone) it is important to determine exactly what you could be sensitized to in order to practice appropriate avoidance measures which is a mainstay of allergy treatment. If medications and avoidance are not effective or not feasible allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots) could be an option as well. See an allergist for skin testing. ...Read more
I am taking Allegra 180mg and Zyrtec 10mg plus using Nasacort (triamcinolone) nasal spray for seasonal allergies. Can I safely continue that or is it too much?
Safe but: If you need that much medication to control your symptoms, it may be time for you to consult an allergist. I also suspect that even the combined medications do not offer you complete relief. ...Read more
Use eye drops meds for high IOP. Is it safe to use OTC nasal spray Nasacort (triamcinolone) to control allergies?
Likely ok: Although the WHO statement mentioned increase IOP as a potential problem with nasal steroid, I have not seen such an association. The best way to find out is to check the IOP after you have been on nasal steroid for about a month if you are really concerned. ...Read more
Can you have withdrawal symptoms from nasal steroids? After stopping Nasacort (triamcinolone) I developed migraines, muscle aches, and anxiety with panic attacks.
Nasonex, (mometasone) 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
Past 3 days Wake up with thick dark yellow sometimes blood tinged nasal mucus. Nose is not running. On Nasacort (triamcinolone) for 1wk. Sinus Infection? Virus?
May be normal: Sinusitis is mostly caused by viruses. There is difficulty diagnosing bacterial sinusitis by symptoms alone but if symptoms are present >10 days, fever >102 with pus for first 3-4 days of symptoms or worsening of symptoms following viral infection - you may have a bacterial infection. Be careful to use nasacort (triamcinolone) appropriately as the irritation may also cause bleeding. ...Read more
Hello, my left ear continues to pop, and feels congested since the beginning of spring, I was told, saline nasal spray will help along with Nasacort (triamcinolone)?
I take Allegra and Nasacort (triamcinolone) daily but am still suffering from recurrent sneezy, runny nose (clear/sticky) and inflamation. Is there any other help?
See allergist: The best treatment is avoidance of the allergens which can be identified best with allergy skin test and somewhat less effectively with blood tests. ...Read more
5-10 days on average: Could be few days sooner or few days longer. Depends on how bad the cold was, the anatomy of your nasal passages. Things to try to make it clear up faster: steam, neti pot (salt water flushes for the nose), decongestants, sometimes trying things like Flonase or Nasonex (mometasone) can also help. ...Read more
Nasacort (triamcinolone): Greetings. The good news is that there is no limited length of time that you can use Nasacort (triamcinolone). Long term use studies found that when you use a steroid nasal spray daily for >5 years, no adverse effects were noted. I have patients who have intranasal polyps who have been benefitting from these medications for years. If you should develop bleeding or a headache hold off for a bit. ...Read more

Post Nasal Drip: Greetings. PND results from an alteration of the normal process of mucus flow from the front to the back of you nose. It could be excess watery drainage, thick sticky drainage, or just too dry causing you to have an abnormal sensation in the post nasal region. All these conditions arise from different causes. How long it will bother you depends on how soon the cause is discovered and treated. ...Read more
For ongoing relief you really want to maintain decongestion without having to redose. Frequently, when people have allergies they benefit from allergy meds (nasal steroid and antihistamine) and possible phenylephrine decongestant that is 12-hours. It is taken once in the AM and repeated in the PM. This is ideal relief. 24-hour decongestants can dry your throat. ...Read more
The test itself can be done in one day. However, most hospitals need to send the sample to a reference lab and due to low volume the lab may not run the test every day.
Wish you good health. ...Read more
How long soes it take for the internal nasal swelling to subside after septoplasty? Could it take months (upto 3 to 6 months)??
Several wks/ months: I often tell my patients they should be able to notice a significant difference in the first couple of weeks. Rarely I do have patients that need several months to improve. After 3 months if there is no significant improvement, I would re-evaluate the anatomy in case there was something else (i.e sinusitis that's was contributing to the the situation) ...Read more
