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.See 1 more doctor answer
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
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.

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 effectsSee 1 more doctor answer
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.
Yes: There is minimal systemic absorption, and long term nasal topical steroids are safe long term without the traditional adverse effects of oral steroids. There are minimal side effects as with any drug, so let your prescribing doctor know if you experience any.
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.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 1 more doctor answer
