Fast relief

5

The only allergy medicine that's worked for me. I hardly have any nasal drainage since using this product, which also means I hardly cough anymore. I really love Flonase Sensimist! I use this product once daily, first thing in the morning and my sneezing stops all day long. A great product that I definitely recommend to allergy sufferers. I was suffering for so long, I have every nasal spray, every allergy medicine and nothing was working umtil this. I have been so much better ever since, I am now able to sleep and wear makeup again! I have had allergies since I can remember and have tried it all. I've bought nasal sprays, eye drops, creams for skin. But with flonase it takes care of all my symptoms in one spray and worked on the first day. Will recommend to everybody.

Works well

I use this product during allergy season as I get sinuses built and have a light cough to clear my throat. I do not use it on regular basis, but use it as needed. There are days where I have used it for 3-5 days in a row and there are days where I have not used it for 1-2 months straight. It is available OTC or with prescription. It is cheaper with prescription if your insurance covers some of the cost. It works very well for me depending on how bad my allergy is.

Definitely a staple during cold season

I got a recommendation from a friend a coupe of years ago to use this. During the winters I would be constantly stuffy, even when I wasn't sick. I bought it (for a decent price), tried it out, and got immediate relief! It was a little uncomfortable using it the first couple of times but after I got used to it, it was fine. The symptom relief is definitely worth the uncomfortableness. When I have a cold, it doesn't do anything to help my throat or headache, but it does it's job when it comes to my stuffy nose. The relief doesn't last all day and I find myself having to use it multiple times a day, but the relief does last for a couple of hours, which I am grateful for. I will continue to buy this product and I recommend to anybody who suffers during the winter!

Great for sinuses AWFUL for migraines...

I picked up some Flonase to at the store after my allergy medicine began failing this winter. At first it seemed like a miracle. Combined with my Allegra, I finally could breath. It also seemed to be helping my allergy-induced asthma symptoms. The trouble came when I started getting these blinding day-long migraines. At first I attributed them to another medication I had recently switched to a generic. But I figured out that it was not that med. I did some research and found that nasal sprays can be a migraine trigger. Bummer! So I had to come off the spray. Thankfully, the headaches went away. Nasal symptoms came back though, along with nose bleeds and a seemingly deadened sense of smell. I don't know if it is just because my nose is all stuffed up again due to allergies or if it is a bad side effect. It hasn't been but a week off of it so I'm waiting to see. Effectiveness It does exactly what it says it does. It helps with nasal allergy symptoms. Ease of Use Pretty easy to use. I'm sure there is potential for user error if you don't read the directions on how to use a nasal spray properly in order to get maximum effectiveness. Immediacy Seemed to take a couple days to really feel the effects.

Flonase nasal spray

4

Flonase nasal spray is a prescription spray you use once every twenty four hours to help with allergies. They claim it is not only for nasal allergy symptoms but itchy, watery eyes as well. My doctor prescribes this for me for my spring hay fever type allergies. I use it every day in the spring months. I do notice a big improvement in my nasal congestion, sneezing, and runny nose. However I do not notice an improvement in my eye symptoms. My eyes still get very itchy, watery, and red. I am not quite sure how a nasal spray is supposed to help with eyes but this is what Flonase is claiming. When I first spray it in my nasal passages it does cause a slight burn and at times it will drip down the back of my throat leaving quite the nasty taste. Thankfully it is a one a day medicine so I do not have to deal with that often. They are coming out with an over the counter version of this which will be nice, I won't need to see my doctor first to get it. Overall it helps my allergies but if your eyes get bad I would suggest adding some eye drops to your routine.

Works good but gives me bloody noses

4

During the past winter my allergies were much more severe than normal. Along with another medication my doctor recommended I use the Flonase twice a day to clear up my severe congestion. The first few times I tried to use it I did not notice a difference. It was difficult to get it up my nose with how congested I was. After a few days I could notice it start working and I was happy with the results. The unfortunate part was that after about a week i started getting bloody noses very often, which is extremely rare for me. At that point I felt better so I stopped using it but a few weeks later my congestion was back. Although it worked when I used it again, I noticed that the link between me using it and my bloody noses was quite clear. I still use it occasionally but only when necessary because the bloody noses are a pain and it makes my throat a lot worse with post nasal drip.

Flonase Nasal Spray

3

A few years ago my family doctor recommend that I take Flonase Nasal Spray for the congestion in my nose from a severe sinus infection I had. This was the first time I have ever used a nasal spray. After using the Flonase Nasal Spray I got immediate relief from my nasal congestion. I was able to breath out of my nose, but the relief did not last too long. Within the hour my congestion had came back and breathing out of my nose became difficult once again. I was quite disappointed that the relief from the nasal spray did not last very long. I don't know much about nasal sprays since this was the very first time I have ever used one. So I don't know if nasal sprays only work with mild cases of nasal congestion and not for severe cases of congestion. I also don't know how often you use the nasal sprays for or even if I had used it properly. The Flonase nasal spray did work immediately after using, but the relief did not last as long as I expected it too.

Works even when battling a common cold

5

My doctor prescribed this for me when I had a horrible cold and was having trouble breathing through my nose. I am aware that medications really should not be used for a common cold since it is a virus, however this product really worked well to help open up my sinuses so I could breath and have some relief. I found that this nasal spray had a funny smell and left an aftertaste in my mouth as it would drain down into my throat. The smell and taste really did not bother me much since I was much more concerned with being able to breath through my nose again. This spray was very affordable and long lasting. I would be able to use it in the morning and it really gave me relief throughout the day. I would also use it in the evenings as well to help me sleep. The bottle lasted a long time since I really only use it when I have a cold or sinus problems. I would recommend asking your doctor about this nasal spray when dealing with sinus congestion.

Works for Colds as well as Allergies

5

I have been using Flonase for years to control my allergies. This works better than the other nasal sprays I have tried over the past. It is great in reducing inflammation of the sinus passages, therefore reducing ear pain and post nasal drip. Since this is not an OTC product, you will need to get a prescription from your physician or allergist. One bottle seems to last quite a while as I only need to use one squirt in each nasal cavity twice per day. It does not work immediately, but this is something that needs to be used for at least a 2 week period of time to be effective. I use this year round, so that is not a problem for me. It provides continuous relief, year round. I even use this when I have a cold, so it is useful for colds and allergies. This is really something that is to be used to decrease swelling of the sinus, not really for congestion. But you might notice an odd taste in your mouth after using, because it does have a strong spray, so it sometimes tends to drip down your throat. So you may want to have a sip of water following usage.

Flonase Nasal Spray is one of the best I've tried yet.

5

Flonase Nasal Spray was first prescribed to me by an emergency room doctor. I went to the emergency room with severe cold symptoms and the worst was how stuffed up my nose was. I could barely breath. It was so stopped up. So the ER doctor prescribed me the Flonase Nasal Spray and I immediately noticed a difference. My nasal passages started to clear and I was able to breath better. It also cleared up the nasal drainage. This Flonase Nasal Spray was the first nasal spray I tried. It turned out to be one of the most effective and one of the best I've tried. This nasal spray has been a great preventive care for my nasal allergies. I used this nasal spray for a few years and it worked relatively well. If I needed another nasal spray this one would be the one that I would prefer over the others. It's a highly effective nasal decongestion and it is covered by most insurances. It's just overall a great nasal spray.
