Flonase and Cataracts

Has anyone that has used Flonase got cataracts? I have them because of it and nasonex. Are there any class action suits against the makers of this? I would not have used it if I had known. ## Have the doctors definitively tied your cataracts to the medications? We have had other posts on here about vision issues developing from people using these types of medications. The problem, however, is proving they are what caused it. And no, I'm sorry, but I know of no class action suits in regards to this. ## My eye surgeon said they were definately caused by steroids and the only one I have used is flonase. She said she could tell by the location of my cataracts, they are posterior and can only be caused by steroid use. If enough people have this kind, I would think it could be proven. ## ...

hydrochlorothiazide 12 5mg side effects

Prescribed hydrochlorothiazide 12.5mg for hypertension. Took for 1st 3 months with no problems outside of frequent urination which is to be expected. It has been working to lower my good pressure, so I was given another 3 month prescription. A week after I begin this batch, I started to suffer from all sorts of illnesses. First it was a stuffy nose, slightly sore throat (lasted approx. 3 days), & red itchy eyes. This lasted week, then stuffy nose turned to runny nose & it felt like something was running down back of throat. This lasted for about a 1-1/2 weeks, but midway through had shortness of breathe & felt like something was sitting on my chest at night. Then everything but shortness of breathe subsided, but I then developed a terrible cough with a squeak at the end and ...

flonase & drug test

Can Flonase cause a false positive for cocaine? ## I'm a Nurse practitioner and Yes, I have heard several of my patients that tested positive in hair drug screenings for cocaine - when I KNOW they haven't been doing drugs of any kind. It hasn't been an issue for urine drug screenings, just the hair drug screenings come back positive. The manufacturer neither "denies nor reports" any known false positives for cocaine in hair testing. I think they are trying to find answers too. ## I took Flonase for one day. How long will Flonase show up in your urine if you are drug tested with a urinalysis? I'm also taking a ZPak antibiotic currently. Will either of these drugs show up in a UA for something? If so, how long after I stop taking them will they NOT BE DETECTABLE in...

Concerns about amox clav 875 mg treatment making symptoms worse

I went to the E.R. on Sun night for a migraine and they ended prescribing amox/k clav 875/125, 1x every 12 hrs. & flonase spray for sinnitius & something about slanted ear or something to do with ears. Now what my concern is, it is now Thursday and i've taken as prescribed. However since the 2nd day of dosing my symptoms went from (only the doctor noticed them and then treated to) me being miserable with sinuses either running/foamy, to feeling like bees built a hive. & my eyes either water like a faucet or they feel gooey in the inner corners while eyelashes feel like spider legs. Also noticed inside the inner corner of my eye behind the tear duct all through the corner it's reddish with yellow spots. Is this anything that i need to return to my doctor for or will t...

I was seeing a pain management specialist for severe arthritis and degenerative cervical disc disease with nerve impingement cauing severe pain to radiate down my arms and into my hands.
