Can I take 10mg of loratadine and use fluticasone nasal spray? I need immediate relief from these horrible allergies! Got a long day outside on tap!

Can I take 10mg of loratadine and use fluticasone nasal spray? I need immediate relief from these horrible allergies! Got a long day outside on tap!

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 have taken 10mg loratadine and a fluticasone propionate nasal spray. In the same day can I take Atarax for help sleeping?

I have taken 10mg loratadine and a fluticasone propionate nasal spray. In the same day can I take Atarax for help sleeping?

Mixing meds: There should be no issues taking Atarax (hydroxyzine) along with Loratidine (Claritin) and fluticasone (nasonex). The Loratidine is a non sedating anti histamine where as the atarax is a sedating one - that has been used off label for sleep. No issues - and if any should arise stop the Atarax. ...Read more

I've used nasal spray and have taken Claritin and mucinex (guaifenesin). is there anything I can do to taste again?

I've used nasal spray and have taken Claritin and mucinex (guaifenesin). is there anything I can do to taste again?

Need diagnosis: Loss of the sense of taste frequently accompanies loss of smell. The latter is due to dysfunction of the olfactory nerves. Claritin, an antihistamine, and a nasal steroid spray will not help. You have to find out why you have lost your sense of smell. Nasal endoscopy needs to be performed and if roof of nose is normal, consult a neurologist. ...Read more

I can't taste. I've used nasal spray, Claritin and mucinex (guaifenesin). Is there anything I can do to taste again?

I can't taste. I've used nasal spray, Claritin and mucinex (guaifenesin). Is there anything I can do to taste again?

Sinus infection: As you already know most of taste is actually smell and lack of this can be quite a downer for your quality of life
See your dr. Or a specialist if you haven't already. It could be caused by reversible conditions like airflow obstruction due to polyps or a sinus infection. In some cases the sense organ has been damaged by recurrent infections. ...Read more

I have been taking Claritin and sudafed pe together and doing a nasal spray my nose won't stop running help?

Try something else: Neither Claritin (loratadine) nor Sudafed should have enough anticholinergic effect to stop a runny nose if that is the primary problem. Chlorpheniramine is an older generation antihistamine that may help, but beware of warnings on the label. Sinus saline irrigation may help more than you'd think. Otherwise, need to discuss with a physician to better characterize your rhinitis to guide effective treatment ...Read more

Can adderall or Afrin nasal spray or a generic form of claritin d cause a positive methamphetamine result on a drug test?

Pseudoephedrine: Since the D in Claritin had been used to manufacture methamphetamine, I would suspect that it will produce a positive drug test. As for Afrin nasal spray, it is difficult to tell since any absorption would be minor and thus likely detectable only with extremely sensitive method. I hope other members in this panel will jump in on this topic. ...Read more

Hello there, I have constant thick sticky mucous rusty tinged behind my uvula and in my throat. I've cultured them and it's serratia and staph, been on cipro without help. I also take Claritin and do saline nasal spray daily. I have low igG. Thank you?

Low IgG: With the picture depicted, you need to be evaluated by allergy / immubology service at a tertiary care hospital, (a university hospital or a teaching hospital), you most probably have an immunodeficiency problem for whatever reason, you might need admission and IV antibiotics to clear the infection and manage the condition from there, goodluck ...Read more

Can I take a nasal spray and dayquil?

Can I take a nasal spray and dayquil?

Perhaps: Dayquil contains Acetaminophen (tylenol), phenylephrine (decongestant) and dextramethorphan (cough suppressant). There should be no interaction with saline nasal sprays, steroid nasal sprays, antihistamine nasal sprays. There would be no real reason to use a decongestant nasal spray as this would be redundant, but unlikely to be harmful. ...Read more
