I have acute and ongoing rhinitis. I was on Flucatizone, but now I have an irritated, burning and bleeding nose. Will Deselex help for my chronically blocked nose? I use Afrin, but find it is a bit harsh to use frequently.

Hi Rita,

Sorry to hear about the ongoing symptoms you're having. From what I could gather, Deselex (Desloratadine) is an antihistamine used for treating or preventing allergy symptoms, such as sneezing or a runny/stuffy nose, etc. Apparently it works by blocking histamine, the substance in the body that is known for causing these allergic symptoms. So it would seem to me that you have the right medication.

Is this something your doctor recommended?

No it was not recommend by my doctor. I was just wondering if it could be an alternative for the Flucatizone which is a corticosteroid and is causing me a lot of adverse side effects. I haven't taken Deselex yet.

David Says:

If you're trying to avoid adverse effects, there's really no way to determine how you'll end up responding to Deselex ahead of time… so the risk factor is still there. However I will say that Deselex does seem like a viable alternative for managing the symptoms of allergic rhinitis based on its indications. So hopefully you'll end up having a better reaction to it than the Flucatizone in that regard, but only time will tell.

Keep us posted if you will!
