Sudden weakness & dizziness

I started taking Nasonex to help clear up an inner ear blockage. Within 30 minutes of taking the spaying it into both nostrils, I became completely fatigued, dizzy and disoriented. It was most noticeable as I stood up and began walking. It felt like something was wrong and I felt anxious and my heart was racing. I checked my blood pressure and blood sugar but they were both normal. I felt better the next morning. I sprayed each nostril in the morning without a noticeable side effect. So I figured that same evening it should be alright to continue. The same symptoms recurred from the previous night, and improved only slightly by bedtime. I slept well, but still feel some of the dizziness. Has anybody else had these side effects? ## Oh yes, I did experience this, and more, when I tried it...

Can you use nasonex while taken belviq

I would like to know if you Can you use Nasonex while taken belviq ## Hello, Maia! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between them, but it's always best to double check to be sure. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Nasonex as possibly including headache, sore throat and flu-like symptoms. Belviq may cause side effects, such as headache, nausea, dizziness and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

nasonex damage

I was prescribed Nasonex for two months last autumn and am now reaping the benefits. I have constant nose bleeds and am now allergic the various things including paint. I am due to have cauterisation for damaged blood vessel which was caused by this drug. ## Hello, Paulie! How are you doing? I'm sorry about what you've experienced. Unfortunately, every medication carries the risk of possibly causing side effects and some long-term damage, it's just what happens when you add a chemical to the body to try to correct a problem. The FDA lists its other most common side effects as possibly including headache, taste disturbances, diarrhea and nausea. When are you having the procedure?

Four days of use is too long

I've been using half the prescribed dose (given by allergist) of Nasonex for past 4 days. I hadn't even considered the possibility of cataracts but I do have a swollen eye (never experienced before) and feel like I'm getting a sinus infection. I'm guessing my cold sore outbreak of 2 days ago was also due to the fact that this drug lowers the immune system (found that info on the Internet, certainly not from the doc). I'm done with this medical experiment! I'll start washing my nose out with saline instead. ## Hi, Rebecca! Sorry that is caused your problems. You are not the first one to post about such things and I am quite certain that you won't be the last. However, it's good that you were using only half the dose and for such a short time, when you foun...

Hypersensitive smell of fumes in nose and throat

My doctor prescribed Nasonex for a persistant cough, I only took it for approx one month and then noticed that from morning to night I was aware of a constant smell of fumes and a hightened smell of everything, especially detergents and room deoderisers, also a prickle feeling in my eyes. On returning to my GP she put me on Loratadine for two months, it is now two months on and I am no better. My life has been spoiled over the last three months, I am sucking peppermints all day long and eating as often as possible, I have put on 7 or 8 pounds and feel awful. I am returning to my GP next Monday. I am 73 years old. I wish I had never taken Nasonex and feel that if this and so many other side effects are possible it should be withdrawn. ## Hi Graham, Sorry to hear about your situation with...

How long will the side effects take to go?

I was perscribed nasonex about a month ago. About a week after taking it I got really ill with flu luke symptoms. Atfer the aches and pains in the body went away ive been left with dizziness and bad headaches. I stopped taking it a week ago and still have these symptoms. I also had the odd spell of blurry vision but haven't had that since I stopped taking it. I want to know how long my head is going to feel scrambled like this. Its very fustrating, my doctor never warned me about any side effects. Ive been learning to drive and got all these problems just before the test and felt awful on the day. I failed on one silly mistake, which possibly wouldn't have happened if I had a clear head. Basically nasonex has ruined me and stopped me being interested in my hobbies. When will I f...

No Problem

i have taken the drug Nasonex and i havent suffered any eye troubles or anything of that nature but i was wondering if i should use it after the expiration date ## How long has it been since the expiration date? The shelf life of Nasonex is noted to be up to 3 years when stored below 25°C (77°F) in the manufacturer's original packaging material. If its been continuing to work for you even after the date, then I'd say it's fine to use. According to a Harvard Medical School family health article, except in rare cases (i.e. tetracycline), there is little chance of danger due to taking medications even up to 15 years beyond their expiration date. I don't know whether or not the drug you have happens to be one of the drugs from their study, but for your ...

Nasonex Causes Eye Problems

Its funny how those drug companys can take a perfect human and trash them with there precriptions that have more side effects than anything. i noticed nasonex causes eye problems.the first question my eye doctor ask was ? does glucoma run in the family ? No ! after watching TV i know why I am a suspect for glucoma. I hate prescriptions , they are an easy death, the pills people take thinking there getting better when there not is B/S. ## Hi JD F, I can understand how you feel about prescription drugs and certainly agree with a lot of the points you made. According to the link below, changes in vision are a severe side effect of Nasonex: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0000204/#a602024-sideEffects Are you experiencing side effects of glaucoma?
