What's The Difference 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 moreSee 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 ...Read more
What is the difference between Flonase and nasacort (triamcinolone)? Which is better for you (e.g. has fewer side effects)?
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 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
Not Likely: While Flonase does list upper respiratory tract infections as a possible side effect, this occurs only rarely in real practice. The amount of actual steroid you get with Flonase is about 1/5 of a milligram per day. This is usually not enough to cause problems with infections or immune suppression. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
