Hey Dr. , feeling "racey" after using flonase while on 30mg-10mg tapering dose, first day at 20. Is this normal? Been very moody too!

Hey Dr. , feeling "racey" after using flonase while on 30mg-10mg tapering dose, first day at 20. Is this normal? Been very moody too!

Steroid effect: I believe the tapering dose of steroid is what has been making you feel racey and Flonase is unlikely to be the culprit since very little of it is absorbed by the body. Steroid (Prednisone etc) especially in high doses often affects one's mood. I would expect these issues to subside within a few days after the last dose.

We went to ER for severe allergic reaction. Thought it was from antibiotics, but now wondering if it might have been from a single dose of Flonase?

We went to ER for severe allergic reaction.  Thought it was from antibiotics, but now wondering if it might have been from a single dose of Flonase?

Unlikely: Flonase allergy causing severe allergic reaction would be very rare. Make an appointment with a board certified Allergist so that he/she can take a detailed past medical history and go over the events of the day of the reaction so that they can get a better sense of what you might have reacted to. ...Read more

You : You have to take the Flonase for a week for it to be effective and you should do nasal washes on a daily basis.
