Nasonex, (mometasone) nasacort aq or flonase, which quicker for nasal congestion/ seasonal allergies?  I also nasal colloidal silve-nott o2 binding, will that work

Nasal sprays: All nasal steroids take a few days to start working and need to build up a dose before they become fully effective. Nasal antihistamines are quicker in onset of actiion. A combination nasal spray should help your symptoms for fast and long lasting relief. Now i don't know anything about the coooloidal silver spray you mentioned. ...Read more

Is there any benefit from using otravin nasal spray and fluticasone to alleviate nasal turbinates hypertrophy?

Is there any benefit from using otravin nasal spray and fluticasone to alleviate nasal turbinates hypertrophy?

Nose: Stay away from the OTC nasal sprays as they are addictive. Fluticasone is fine but takes three weeks to work. You need to look for a cause such as allergies.

I used Otrivin nasal spray 5 times in two weeks.can i use more?can nasal saline spray  reduces te inflammation of turbinates?is sinusoothe effective?

Ok but: If you have used it only 5 x in 2 weeks, it'd be fine. Nasal saline sprays also reduce allergic inflammation and likely wash off some of the allergens deposited on the nose. However Otrivin is not for regular use and you may be better off with an OTC nasal steroid spray. ...Read more

Decongestant?: Although antihistamine dries up the nose, decongestant does not. If the decongestant action is needed for just a few days, you may try Afrin nasal spray 2x daily for up to 5 days. A nasal steroid will likely work better if you have allergies. ...Read more

Can I use fluticasone propionate nasal spray, fexofenadine hydrochloride & diphenhydramine hydrochloride at the same time?

Can I use fluticasone propionate nasal spray, fexofenadine hydrochloride & diphenhydramine hydrochloride at the same time?

Yes, but: The combination treatment of a topical nasal steroid spray such as fluticasone and a new generation antihistamine such as fexofenadine is a great combination. The use of old antihistamines such as Diphenhydramine (benadryl) is usually not necessary and carries more side effects. If symptoms are not controlled on this regimen seek advice from an allergist for a better plan. ...Read more

Which is stronger? Fonase or nasonex (mometasone)?

Which is stronger? Fonase or nasonex (mometasone)?

About the same: Topical nasal steroids have about equal efficacy (activity) and safety. Flonase (fluticasone) and Nasonex (mometasone) are about the same. It depends on what your physician gets into the habit of using. Also some patients prefer one over the other because one of the two topical sprays is less irritating. There is little evidence that one is better than the other. ...Read more
