Is it ok to take pantoprazole, amoxacillan, Flonase and benadril together? Not at the same time but in one day? And pain reliever

Can E-cigs cause Stridor? Polyphonic stridor after exercise/cough/chemicals. Inhaler 6x + a day. Take flonase/zyrtec for dust allergies, doesn't help.
Yes: E cig is not as innocuous as it may appear. The heated chemical-containing vapor (even if it is "organic") may irritate your throat. The best way to tell is not to use it for 2 weeks and see if your symptoms improve. If you are pregnant, it is unwise to smoke anything since this may adversely impact the health of your baby possibly for the rest of his life. ...Read more
What nasal spray has least side affects. I have allergic asthma. Nose runs clear all day. Cannot take flonase. Very senstive to most drugs. Low immune?
Technique: Please tell us why you couldn't tolerate flonase? Most of adverse reactions are from improper spray technique which should be aiming towards the side and not the center of the nose. If you get nosebleeds from all inhaled steroid despite correct technique, try an antihistamine spray. If this too failed, some people may respond to a leukotriene blocker. See an allergist if problem persists. ...Read more

Perhaps: Afrin contains oxymetazoline which can improve nasal congestion when used for short periods of time. Use for more than 3 days can increase risk of rebound congestion and development of a condition called Rhinits Medicamentosa. (RM) Use with a topical steroid nasal spray may (like flute adobe) help to prevent it. You should always minimize use of decongestants because of other possible effects. ...Read more
How Flonase Works: Flonase is an anti-inflammatory nasal spray. The steroid it contains can decrease swelling of the mucosal membranes of the nose that cover the turbinates. This occurs gradually, and may start as early as a few hours after the first dose and peak around three weeks later. The turbinates themselves are made of cartilage and they do not shrink in response to medication. Surgery can reduce them. ...Read more

Yes: Afrin typically should not be used for more than 5 or so consecutive days. Tolerance develops at that point and congestion can worsen. There are studies that suggest nasal steroid blocks development of tolerance, so some patients can actually tolerate Afrin longer. Ask your physician about this before extending use of Afrin and always consult physician before using either of these. Good luck! ...Read more
Is it ok to take Flonase everyday? Or are you only supposed to take it when your sinuses are backed up?
Hi! Is it okay if I take a 1.5x dose of Flonase (2 sprays at night, and 1 the following morning) the first time I am taking it? Thank you!
For a few weeks.: You will likely be ok if you are using the higher dose for just a few weeks. For chronic use, I am not sure if there may be some systemic effect even though at the dose described it is likely ok. ...Read more
Have sinus issues & been experiencing severe lightheadness/ shaky I take flonase/saline daily can sinus make u feel that bad? Seems extreme
No: Sinus infection or inflammation should not cause light headedness. The symptoms associated with sinusitis are 1.) yellow-green nasal discharge, 2.) pain, fullness, pressure under and over the eyes and between the eyes, 3.) post-nasal drainage and 4.) rarely pain on top of the head. True sinusitis can only be documented by a cat scan of the sinuses. Your symptoms are unlikely due to sinusitis. ...Read more
