What brand nasal spray would you recommend for allergic rhinitis?

How you use it key. I agree with dr. Overholt. To minimize adverse effects - nosebleed, stinging, drug in your throat - and maximize drug delivery to nose for best results try this. Shake well. Hold device tip at nostril - don't shove it up your nose. Point straight up - not at either ear. Spray. If dripping out sniff gently - don't snurf. Goal is a fine mist throughout nose not a jet spray to one spot. This works!

Irritated swollen nasal passages (turbinates) for last 5 weeks. Tried nasal& oral steroids no relief. Was told to try Singulair. Will this help? Was told Not allergic but possible Non-allergic rhinitis. Can coloidial silver nasal spray also help?

Unusual first choice. Singulair (montelukast) is an unusual first choice for non-allergic rhinitis and as an add-on to high dose antihistamine treatment (I notice you're taking allegra and zyrtec). It could be for the skin rash if hives is a consideration? Also, 5-weeks is a bit short of a time period to conclude that this is non-allergic rhinitis. Just some general thoughts. Read more...
