Is it safe to use "Beconase" Aqueous Nasal Spray for blocked/runny nose? Are there any side effects?

Not systemic. All topical steroids may have the side effects of occasional nose bleeds and irritation or burning. But the use of a topical nasal steroid is virtually without any systemic side effects. Make sure that you are using this spray for either allergic rhinitis or non-allergic rhinitis. A blocked runny nose can also be symptomatic of nasal polyps. Read more...

Yes. Nasal steroid takes several days to get optimal results . Afrin should not be used for more than 5 days else you may end up with even more nasal congestion (rebound). Methylprednisolone is not usually indicated for bronchitis. If chronic this may be asthma. Consider seeing an allergist. Read more...

I am having pressure when I bend forward in the back of my head and near my ears. Slight runny nose, no congestion, will afrin nasal spray help this?

Probably not. Afrin (oxymetazoline) can't be used for more than 3 days or you'll get rebound congestion in people using it chronically for that. Also it can't be used at the same time if you are on high blood pressure meds, glaucoma drops or meds, or any meds that can increase pressures. Read the package insert carefully first. It's basically a sinus decongestant, and you said you don't have any congestion. So go another way. Read more...

Can Ipratropium Bromide nasal spray help with post-nasal drip? No runny nose or front nasal discharge, just the drip. Not linked to allergy (per ENT)

Depends. It depends on the cause for the post-nasal drips. If the nasal drips is not linked to nasal stuffiness, sneezing, or runny nose, one needs to consider other causes (sinus infection for example). If your nose and eyes itch, it is likely from allergy which can confirmed by the history and skin testing. One can't tell whether one has an allergic problem by looking at the nose and throat alone.
