Be greater than your allergies
WHAT ARE NASAL STEROID SIDE EFFECTS?
A nasal steroid is not the same kind of steroid used to bulk up muscle for the gym. 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.1
SIDE EFFECTS OF NASAL STEROIDS
Some side effects that may occur when using intranasal steroid sprays like FLONASE® allergy relief nasal sprays, include burning, dryness, crusting, or other irritation inside the nose. Other possible side effects of FLONASE® include occasional nosebleeds, nasal whistling, and headaches.
If you experience symptoms while using our family of FLONASE® products 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. 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® allergy relief nasal sprays, it's best to spray only the recommended number of sprays in each nostril and aim the nozzle toward the outer wall of the nostril. Be sure to blow your nose to clear the passageway and wash your hands before using FLONASE®. To learn how you can get the most from your FLONASE® products, refer to our How to Use guide to ensure you achieve the allergy relief you need.
