So last year Dr. Recommend. Refused and wasn’t sure about side effects. This year allergies where very bad so on call nurse which was suppose be visit to Primary care. Dr. wasn’t available. Recommend. Said she used all time. So I used. 3.00 am woke up with tingling lips and noticed rash on stomach. Thought about calling Ambulance. Got worse all night. Felt like someone stabbing me in stomach. By morning felt burning in my throat was feeling like a choking feeling. Tried eating. Started spitting up my food. Then ran bathroom with diarrhea. That was last straw. Called for Ambulance. Went to ER.
Stomach pain was horrible and choking feeling was scary. Still never had seen Dr, even in ER. Figured out triggered my IBS, Gerd, heartburn, and terrible stomach pains. Yeah me had give me strong heartburn med which even made feel like choking. They decide have take ** for three weeks and call my GI dr. Never took Flonase in my life and had make in my chart as severe allergic reaction. Threw it in trash when I got home...never again. They kicker trying contact a lawyer because insurance won’t cover part Ambulance bill. That shouldn’t even had to take if just refused to take the Flonase again. Had to learn hard way and even The EMT SAID IT HAS pretty nasty side effects. You think. Users beware. Thank you and frustrating not sure what do from here just need to get this off my chest.
Don't care what benefits this drug has. It completely RUINED MY SENSE OF SMELL. I did exactly what the doctor said to do. Used exactly as prescribed and have lost my sense of smell!!!! ALL drugs have side effects. Nature of the beast BUT...this is HUGE WIDESPREAD SIDE EFFECT and manufacturer is NOT INFORMING PUBLIC.
I took Flonase for 10 days straight dosing 1 spray per day at 50mcg to aid with illness. This was prescribed by a doctor with no conversation around side effects. My nose now bleeds every 2 to 3 days. A couple times had been violently heavy flow during times like a hot shower. It's been a month since discontinuing use and am still getting nose bleeds followed by a manageable headache. Even something like a warm plate of food or temperature fluctuation will make my nose pour. Today it happened in a restaurant while trying to enjoy dinner with my wife. I do not have any prior problems with frequent nosebleeds. People treat this medication and use it daily for months. I urge you to at minimum read the long term side effects. Never again.
I took Flonase daily for a month to open my sinuses before bed. When I stopped using the product, I started to notice a garbage fume smell in my nose and mouth usually triggered by pressure or by bending over to pick something up. Then it goes away. I think it may be a phantom smell from what I read, which means it’s not actually a scent, but a change in my sense of smell interpreting it differently. I plan to pray and a three day fast to see if it will make it go away. It makes me self conscious that it’s my breath. But I don’t think others can smell it. Definitely done leftover chemical in my sinuses from the Flonase. Don’t use Flonase.
Flonase was the first inhaled nasal ** to be available over the counter. When I first started using it it was prescription only and I would frequently run out. Once it became available OTC I just kept using it. It's less expensive than others and I like that it helps to open my nasal passages by reducing the inflammation caused by my allergies. It goes straight to the source of the problem and helps to fix it rather than just mask the problem. But I dislike that I have to use it everyday. I would like if I did not need to use it that often because it would last longer. Also, I go back and forth on the smell. Sometimes I like it and sometimes I do not like it.

Flonase treats the sinuses directly and gives my nose somewhat immediate relief. The spray method is soothing on my sinuses and immediately reduces inflammation in my face. But Flonase can be pretty pricey if not provided or prescribed by a doctor. I have received Flonase OTC, as a sample from my PCP, and via prescription. But when I purchased it OTC it was too expensive to upkeep. I have had good results with Flonase though and I use it every Spring when my allergies get bad. It always helps prevent and/or cure a sinus infection. I used Flonase in conjunction with ** tablets which seemed to really help each medicine work its best.
My doctor had recommended Flonase Allergy Relief when I went in for a visit, they said it was fast acting which is exactly what I needed. The first time I used it I knew it was the right medication for me by how quick and efficient it rid my symptoms. It's very effective but the only thing I dislike is the price. It's expensive especially when used daily. But other than that, I have had no issues with the use or the performance of the medication. It doesn't cause any side effects. It's easy to use and can even be used while on the go. I'm very satisfied with results and will definitely continue to use it.
Flonase Allergy Relief is doctor recommended and was highly recommended by other people that I knew who had tried it. The only side effect I had was that it made my throat sore where my sinus' would drain. But other than that, I didn't have any problem. The fresh smell of the spray was nice and it works to open up my nose. Most spray I have used didn't work as well as Flonase.
My seasonal allergies are really bad in January and February and I am constantly going to the doctor for it. One doctor recommended trying this medicine so at the point I was ready to try anything and it helped a little. It's quick to use and it seems to last a long time or I just don't use it a lot! This allergy medicine is unique because you snort it through your nose. I really don't like putting medicine in my nose but it helps a little so sometimes you have to do things you don't like. I also don't like the smell or taste of it and it gives me a headache at time when I do take it.
I originally got it when it was a prescription medication. It's simple to use and it's effective. It doesn't dry out my sinuses like pills do which causes nosebleeds. It's reasonably priced and I can use it every day of the year. However, I don't like the aftertaste/smell it leaves behind.
