Rhinocort And Flonase Together
Yes: Since Nasonex (mometasone) and patanase work by different mechanisms, there is no contraindication to using them simultaneously. The patanase will have a quicker onset of action (same day) while the Nasonex (mometasone) (nasal steroid) will take a couple of days to begin to feel effect and peak effect may take a week. If symptoms require both meds, consider seeing an allergist to identify the underlying trigger. ...Read more
Yes: Fluticasone is a nasal steroid spray while Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a traditional antihistamine. There is no drug interactions to worry about. For allergy treatment, consider a new generation antihistamine such as claritin, zyrtec or Allegra as they have less side effects than benadryl (diphenhydramine). ...Read more
Allergy/Asthma: First off, follow the doctor recs. If you are worried, you should ask the allergist.. But, yes, that is a safe regimen. It is actually a good therapy since the two nose sprays work very well together, the zyrtec is a good adjunct and Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) is one of the best asthma medications. ...Read more
Yes: Should not be a problem.Get a more detailed answer ›
Perhaps: Afrin contains oxymetazoline which can improve nasal congestion when used for short periods of time. Use for more than 3 days can increase risk of rebound congestion and development of a condition called Rhinits Medicamentosa. (RM) Use with a topical steroid nasal spray may ( like flute adobe) help to prevent it. You should always minimize use of decongestants because of other possible effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, short term: Oxymetazoline is a nasal decongestant spray that works quickly to decrease stuffy nose, but if used beyond 4-7 days may result in "rebound" nasal congestion and a person can become dependent upon it. Pseudoephedrine is an oral decongestant that is effective but has multiple side effects including increasing BP in those with hard to control high blood pressure, insomnia, dry mouth, and GI upset. ...Read more
Yes: No problem with both together.Get a more detailed answer ›
Ok to combine: Each of the medications listed work by a different mechanism. Montelukast blocks the effects of leukotrienes; allergra is a new generation antihistamine; and fluticasone is a corticosteroid nasal spray. At the usual doses, there should be no problem with interaction. However, if a person is needing this much medication therapy, it may be prudent to consult an allergist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Yes: Nasonex (mometasone) is a topical nasal steroid and azelastine is an antihistamine and as a matter of fact, there is now a topical nasal spray that possesses both of these types of medications in a single nasal spray. It is therefore safe to take these together particularly if you have allergic rhinitis. ...Read more
Yes: Sudafed and plain Claritin (loratadine) can be taken together. Sudafed is a decongestant, and Claritin (loratadine) is an antihistamine. Claritin (loratadine) d already contains pseudoephedrine, the ingredient in original sudafed, so Claritin (loratadine) d should never be taken with sudafed. ...Read more
Yes, their: Mechanism of action is different and they may complement each other for allergy treatment. ...Read more
