Can I take 10mg of loratadine and use fluticasone nasal spray? I need immediate relief from these horrible allergies! Got a long day outside on tap!

Can I take 10mg of loratadine and use fluticasone nasal spray? I need immediate relief from these horrible allergies! Got a long day outside on tap!

Yes: Loratidine and fluticasone nasal spray are effective when used together. If this is not effective, adding an intranasal antihistamine (rx), such as azelastine (astelin) or olpatadine (patanase) is an option. Dymista is a combination of fluticasone and azelastine and works quickly. None of these products should adversely affect asthma or your current medications. Read more

I started Avamys nasal spray 2 days ago. Since 10 hours after the 2nd dose I've had pain and bruising in the left side of my nose. What should I do?

I started Avamys nasal spray 2 days ago. Since 10 hours after the 2nd dose I've had pain and bruising in the left side of my nose. What should I do?

Unexpected: It is not an expected side effect from using nasal steroid. Nonetheless you need to stop using it and ask your doctor to check your spraying technique and perhaps try a nasal antihistamine spray. I am also concerned as to whether you are having a severe sinus infection at the left as well. Read more
