Is Fluticasone A Steriod
Can fluticasone propionate nasal spray cause weight gain? I've seen people report it since it's a steroid, is it possible??
Very rare: This would be a very rare side effect, and only rarely seen after taking it for a very long time. This is because the steroid acts locally in the nose and the sinuses and is not absorbed by the bloodstream ...Read more
I am on a fluticasone steroid nasal spray for allergy and sinusitis prevention. If I have a cold should I keep taking it or should I temporarily stop?
Can a decongestant like Mucinex (guaifenesin) and a steroid nasal spray like fluticasone taken too much over time cause loss of smell and taste?
Probably OK: Drug expiration dates reflect the time of proved safety and effectiveness. But in almost all cases, the drug remains potent and safe for much longer (often many years), if it hasn't been exposed to high heat for long periods (like a car's glove compartment in summer). It's always safest to get a refill, but most likely the expired fluticasone will work just fine. ...Read more

What's the difference between fluticasone furoate and foxefenadine when treating rhinitis? Can a patient react well to one and not to the other? Thanks
Completely different: Fluticasone furoate is a topical nasal steroid in a spray form. It works by reducing inflammation over time through a variety of pathways. Fexofenadine is an oral antihistamine taken by mouth and works by blocking the chemical histamine in our bodies. Overall, the nasal spray does more to reduce allergy symptom scores and may also help with non-allergic conditions such as non-allergic rhinitis. ...Read more

Yes: One treatment for eosinophilic esophagitis involves swallowing inhaled steroids such as fluticasone which is found in flovent. The ventolin will have no effect on the symptoms. It is also worth exploring whether any foods such as milk may be triggering symptoms. Foods can be eliminated empirically or based on prick and/or patch testing. ...Read more
Yes: You can, but what preparation: inhaled / nasal? ...Read more
Very different: Nasal steroids such as fluticasone work best for nasal congestion and sinus inflammation, while antihistamines such as fexofenadine work better for itching and sneezing. Typically, if you're going to use only one medication, you'll do better with fluticasone than fexofenadine. ...Read more
I was diagnosed w/ ETD (prescribed fluticasone) I noticed my blood pressure was a little high (133/70) Is there any possible correlation? Thank you!
If you are taking: It as a nasal spray, no. The amount that gets in your blood stream is somewhere between minimal and minuscule. Inhaled steroids get into your system but in negligible concentrations. FYI. 133/70 is normal. Blood pressure fluctuates depending on your physical activity, your state of mind & time of day that it's measured. "ideal" values assume that you're at rest. No worries. Dr. Anne. ...Read more
