Have a perforated septum, recently prescribed rhinocort aqua nasal spray, worried it'll make my condition worse. Should I be worried?

Have a perforated septum, recently prescribed rhinocort aqua nasal spray, worried it'll make my condition worse. Should I be worried?

Yes: Nasal septal perforations are a problem. They crust and bleed easily. Unfortunately using a nasal spray can sometimes aggravate the situation even though you angle the spray away from the perforation. You might be better to try to get the perforation fixed. If the perforation is small fixing it is relatively easy. Seek an experienced ENT physician who will be able to advise you in more detail. ...Read more

Fexofenadine: Tough to say which is safest and if any can contribute to sezures in your daughter, but fexofenadine (allegra) does not cross the blood brain barrier. That is the reason it does not cause drowsiness. And because it does not cross the blood brain barrier, it likely has limited ability to contribute to your daughters seizures. ...Read more

Rhinocort aqua nasal spray. Complicated prenancy so is it ok to take?

Considered safe: It is a category b drug: no harm seen in animal studies, no available data in human first trimester, and no evidence of fetal harm in 2nd or 3rd.

How does rhinocort and sudafed affect your ear health?

How does rhinocort and sudafed affect your ear health?

Can help: If you have eustachian tube dysfunction (problems equalizing ear pressure) those meds can sometimes help. Sudafed is not a good medication for long term use, however, especially if you have high blood pressure or a heart problem. Discuss with your doctor or ent. Those medicines will generally not affect balance problems or hearing loss which is not due to fluid build up on the ear. Best wishes. ...Read more

Known to have allergic rhinitis taking mometasone or Rhinocort as nasal spray is better and why?

Both good: Both mometasone and rhinocort are good nasal sprays for allergic rhinitis symptoms. They will both give you relief. They are both aqueous preparations which are thought to be gentle on a dry nose. The only thing different is the potency of the steroid in them, and I believe they are pretty comparable. ...Read more

Can I take clarinase, rhinocort aqua as nose spray and zovirax (acyclovir) cream all together?

Can I take clarinase, rhinocort aqua as nose spray and zovirax (acyclovir) cream all together?

Yes: But would advise against use of topical Acyclovir (zovirax). It will not shorten the herpetic outbreak or minimize your symptoms. The value is that it reduces viral shedding and therefore transmissability to others, but at the cost of potentially inducing resistance so that if and when you need systemic therapy it will be less effective. ...Read more

Can I use rhinocort nasal spray when pregnant for a stuffynose? How long does it take to clear up a stuffy nose with rhinocort?

Remember that a stuffy nose can linger during pregnancy because your immune system is altered when pregnant. ...Read more
