I have cataracts, should I continue taking Fluticasone Propionate nasal spray or ask my doctor for an alternate brand?

In brief: Continue

If your fluticasone nasal spray is working well for you then keep taking it.
There is no evidence yet that it has an affect on cataracts.

I agree with Dr. Fritz.
No increased incidence of cataracts was shown in a fairly large study: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2868867/ Double-check with your eye doctor, though, other factors may affect this and we don't know everything about you and what other medicines you take.
