What Difference Is There Between Flonase And Veramyst
The compound: Flonase is Fluticasone Propionate and Veramyst is fluticasone furoate. They have changed the "side chain" of the steroid molecule making it potentially a more active compound. It binds to the receptor more "tightly" and may last longer. Thus you may have better results with Veramyst vs. Flonase. ...Read more
I believe a scent or preservative in Flonase, Nasonex, (mometasone) and Omnaris triggers migraines. Is Veramyst a good alternative to these? Something else?
Yes: Veramyst has a very fine mist that is well tolerated. If it causes migraines, just stick with nasal saline, like a netty pot ...Read more
Don't know: I couldn't even find flonaseql with google. I presume that they have the same ingredients but different delivery systems. However this is just a guess. ...Read more

What is the difference between Flonase and nasacort (triamcinolone)? Which is better for you (e.g. has fewer side effects)?
Spray: Pretty much the same. Different steroid and propellant. Works about the same. Similar side effects ...Read more
What is the difference between allegra (fexofenadine) and Flonase for allergy relief -take one or both?
Flonase better: Allegra is an atihistamine and is helpful for itchiness, sneezing and a runny nose, not helpful for congestion. Flonase, an intranasal steroid covers all these symptoms plus congestion. Head to head studies comparing Flonase to antihistamines, singulair, (montelukast) or sudafed showed that Flonase beat them all. I usually suggest daily Flonase and adding an antihistamine on as needed or supplemental basis. ...Read more
Flonase: Topical nasal steroid sprays like Flonase have near negligible absorption in your system (ie blood). Blood levels of any nasal steroid is far below any oral steroid dosing a doctor would give. Topically within the nasal cavity Flonase is active for 12-24 hrs on the mucosa. So we recommend either once or twice daily dosing depending on symptom severity. ...Read more
Overdose of flonase?: I don't know how someone overdoses on Flonase unless you sprayed the entire bottle in your nose. You will very likely have a bloody nose, dryness of the nose and mouth, headache, irritation, possibly decreased sense of smell. Hey...Let's not try this and find out. Follow the directions of your doctor. ...Read more
Just weaker: Futicasone (flonase) and all other medications lose potency over time. They don't became toxic or poisonous. Fda regulations state that the time after manufacturing when a drug has lost 10% of its original potency be designated its expiration diet. That means that on that date the drug is still at 90% of its maximal strength. It won't hurt you to use it but it might not work as well. ...Read more
Yes: These medications work very differently and are safe to take together. ...Read more
Nearly impossible: Since Flonase delivers only micrograms of steroid with only a small part of which being absorbed and much of it draining out, you will need to use more than 20 sprays to get any noticeable systemic effect. However nosebleed will be the most likely side effect and using a dose more than twice recommended will not likely provided any added benefit for symptom control. ...Read more
Store at 86 deg or <: The package insert for Flonase recommends that it be stored "between 4° and 30°c (39° and 86°f)." the medicine may break down faster if it gets warmer than that, especially if it happens for a long time or if it happens often. That means it won't be as effective when used. ...Read more
I am having etd they gave me Flonase how long until it works. I have been having symptoms for weeks.
Few days: It may take a few days. If it does not work would see an ENT to evaluate the area inside the nose where the tube has an opening. ...Read more
