WHAT ARE NASAL STEROID SIDE EFFECTS?
A nasal steroid is not the same kind of steroid used to bulk up muscle for the gym.1 When allergies are disrupting your day with symptoms such as runny nose or congestion, nasal steroids work to reduce the swelling in nasal passages and make it easier to breathe through your nose.2
SIDE EFFECTS OF NASAL STEROIDS
Some side effects that may occur when using FLONASE®, a nasal steroid, include burning, dryness, crusting, or other irritation inside the nose.3 Other possible side effects of FLONASE® include occasional nose bleeds, nasal whistling, and headaches.4 If you experience symptoms while using FLONASE® that resemble an allergic reaction such as rash, swelling of the face or tongue, wheezing, or feeling faint, stop using FLONASE® and see a doctor.4 If you have questions or concerns about symptoms or trouble using the medication it is best to call your doctor.
To help prevent local side effects from FLONASE®, it is best to spray only the recommended sprays in each nostril and aim the spray toward the outer wall of the nostril. It is best to blow your nose and clear the passage way and wash your hands before using FLONASE®. See our guide on how to use FLONASE®.
