Taking prednisone, flovent, and nasonex: too much steroids? This caused depression? Or likely due to singulair? Dr. Prescribe lexapro (escitalopram). Good idea?

Taking prednisone, flovent, and nasonex: too much steroids? This caused depression? Or likely due to singulair?  Dr. Prescribe lexapro (escitalopram). Good idea?

A lot of med: It is not the Flovent or Nasonex (mometasone) but the oral Prednisone which is of concern. Prednisone usually makes people feel good but may induce depression in a few. Singulair rarely causes mental issues. It appears that you may have steroid-resistant asthma and i think it is time for you to consult an allergist. A drug reaction is best treated by stopping the drug and not with another drug. ...Read more

32 weeks pregnant with flu. Doctor prescribed nasonex (mometasone) but it is not working. Can i take dristan instead? It has always worked really well for me.

32 weeks pregnant with flu. Doctor prescribed nasonex (mometasone) but it is not working. Can i take dristan instead? It has always worked really well for me.

Both not the best: Nasonex (mometasone) (corticosteroids) has been assigned to pregnancy category c by the fda. Dristan (ibuprofen/pseudoephedrine) has not been formally assigned to a pregnancy category. Animal studies failed to reveal evidence of harm. Use in late pregnancy leads to premature fetal PDA closure. The recommendations are during pregnancy use, when there are no alternatives and benefit outweighs the risks. ...Read more

When I have post nasal drip, should I use nasonex (mometasone) or allegra, or both? None

When I have post nasal drip, should I use nasonex (mometasone) or allegra, or both? None

You : You can use either a steroid nasal spray such as Nasonex (mometasone) or Flonase or an antihistamine such as allegra, zyrtec or Claritin for post nasal drip. In many cases the best response occurs if you use both, which is certainly safe to do. Importantly, it takes a few weeks for the steroid nasal spray to take effect so you should keep with it to see if it helps you. ...Read more

Can afrin be used after nasonex (mometasone)?

Yes, but....: It will dilute the nasonex (mometasone). If you need to use afrin, use it about 30 minutes before nasonex (mometasone). It will open up the nose so the Nasonex (mometasone) gets in better and will be more effective. Be sure to heed the warnings on the afrin packaging. ...Read more

Is nasonex (mometasone) effective for unblocking ears?

Is nasonex (mometasone) effective for unblocking ears?

Ear-nose connection : Nasonex, (mometasone) one of multiple prescription topical nasal steroid medications, is an anti-inflammatory and as such often decreases edema or swelling of the nasal mucosa (lining). This can help open the nasal end of the eustachian tube allowing better air movement between the middle ear and nasal cavity. This can cause the ear to feel less "blocked". ...Read more

Can your body start resisting nasal steroids? Nasonex (mometasone) doesn't seem to work for me like it use too. Is this possible?

Can your body start resisting nasal steroids? Nasonex (mometasone) doesn't seem to work for me like it use too. Is this possible?

Technique: It is always a good idea to make sure the bottle is not expired and you are using it properly. When putting in nose, point tip out towards the eye so the spray will not hit the center part of nose. You may want to talk to your doctor about your dosage, sometimes there is room to move up on the amount of sprays or frequency to improve effectiveness. Using nasal saline irrigation before can help. ...Read more
