Question on medication.?
What is the typical onset for Flonase? How does Flonase differ from Vancenase AQ? Thanks
Asked by Vernetta Boelk 4 months ago.
Flonase and Vancenase AQ are both corticosteroids, whose indication is the reduce rhinitis (stuffy nose) and asthma maintenance (more on that below) Flonase = flucitasone Vancenase AQ = triamcinolone Flucitasone and Triamcinolone are comparable, middle potency glucocorticoids. The induction times (or onset) of the two steroids have a very low acquity index, as do all steroids. Acquity index means how quickly a drug takes to exert its effects after dosing, and I would say steroids take 12, if not 24 hrs for induction. In English, this means steroids are *never* indicated as 'rescue inhalers' where one needs fast relief from an asthma attack -- they are *much* too slow. Beta agonists such as albuterol are fast onset and are used for that purpose However, steroid inhalers are excellent maintenance drugs, meaning they are to be taken routinely, every day at a set time to maintain consistent blood levels -- that is the way they work best. Studies have shown that the reported Rhinitis Index Score -- the subjective relief score by patients using the drugs are 4.60 and 4.20 respectively, and is not statistically significant -- meaning they are equally effective clinically (see: nih.gov) and interchangeable.

Nasal Allergies, colds and infections Allergies, colds and sinus infections are major causes of recurring nosebleeds throughout the year. In the US annually 35 million suffer with nasal allergies, 31 million experience sinus infections and there are 1 billion colds reported. Nosebleeds often result from these conditions due to: -The swelling and irritation of the nasal cavities they cause -The side effects of certain medications, particularly the steroid nasal sprays -The excessive nasal dryness caused by frequent use of nasal decongestants. Some of the nasal sprays reporting nosebleeds as a side effect include: Veramyst, Flonase, Nasonex, Omnaris, Astepro, Nasalide, Decadron, Beconase, Vancenase and Rhinocort Aqua What Is NasalCEASE? NasalCEASE is a natural based bio-polymer, designed and manufactured with unique properties for the quick and convenient treatment of minor nosebleeds. Doctor recommended, the key attributes of the NasalCEASE packing are: Stops Bleeding Fast – As soon as NasalCEASE comes in contact with blood, calcium is released. Calcium is a coagulant which actively aids in stopping the bleeding quickly. Calcium continues to be released until the bleeding has stopped. Easy / Painless Insertion – The soft fibers of NasalCEASE allow it to be quickly and easily inserted into the nasal cavity without any discomfort. Adsorbs Blood – NasalCEASE continues to adsorb blood throughout the duration of the nosebleed. This unique polymer can adsorb up to twenty times its weight. As a result 90%+ of nosebleeds can be effectively treated with one NasalCEASE packing. This allows the nosebleed sufferer to insert NasalCEASE and forget about it until removal thirty minutes later. Promotes Healing – As NasalCEASE adsorbs blood, the sodium in the blood changes the packing from a dry to moist or gelified mass. This moist mass against the wound site promotes healing. Also as the blood is continually adsorbed into the packing and not just pooling between the packing and the wound site, the size of the clots are less. Excessive clots can often cause bleeding to reoccur. Non-stick Removal – As NasalCEASE changes to a moist / gelified mass, the packing doesn’t stick to new clots, preventing resistance and pulling on clots when removed. No Rebleeds – Disturbing new clots causes rebleeding 10% to 15% of the time. As NasalCEASE doesn’t stick to new clots, it doesn’t cause rebleeding. NasalCEASE is sold in boxes of five sterile packs. Each sterile pack treats one nosebleed. The individual sterile packs are conveniently stored and are very portable, ensuring easy availability whenever and wherever a nosebleed occurs. The product has a five year shelf life. Visit www.nasalcease.com for additional information and free product samples. Answered by Katharyn Alder 4 months ago.

strong coughs can cause eruption of small nasal blood vessels and lead to bleeding. the coughing can be brought on by drainage from the back of the nasal passages and moving downward toward the epiglottis where a cough reflex is initiated. a pharmacist could offer something over the counter to help with the nose bleed, or you can just put your head back and pinch the nose just below the cartilage where the nose can be easily squeezed together. an ice pack to the nose may help. also packing the nose with cotton or gauze for a few minutes can help but there are problems associated with that when one isnt knowledgeable about removing the packing, or leaving it in to long. as long as your able to deal with it, and no other symptoms are present your likely ok. oh, any nose bleed seems like your losing a ton of blood, in reality it may be hardly more than a tablespoonful. but if you have six seven nosebleeds a day that teaspoonful ads up. so you be the judge, just an occassional nose bleed from strong involuntary coughing, or many bleeds from many coughing spells throughout the day. if this were so you might want to consult an ENT doctor.

i've never heard of nosebleeds occuring, though it could be a side affect of heavy coughing which is a side affect of smoking marijuana. six times a day is definetly excessive though and is probably something that deserves attention. however, it doesnt cause high blood pressure. if he refuses to tone it down... i'd recommend you try to get him to drink more water which should cause fewer nosebleeds due to dry nasal cavities. or get him to try and eat it which will negate any effects from smoking, or if he refuses to do that due to the hassle... get a vaporizer which allows him to inhale but not be "smoking" it is what is used my medical patients and isn't unhealthy in any way... however a vaporizer can be expensive, although a good investment for someone that smokes that much Answered by Duane Hestand 4 months ago.

Needs help with rhinitis?
I have rhinitis and i will sneeze and have a runny nose if there is a cold breeze. it also happens in the mornings. its getting colder now and my condition is getting worse. whenever i lay down, my nose gets stuffy and its really annoying. i want to know if there is any remedies or things i can do to make it better.
Asked by Abe Bojko 4 months ago.
The very best thing (I think) is getting a steroid spray from your doctor. Like Beconase, Nasarel or Vancenase. You spray it in your nostrils twice a day--after about a week, you'll notice that your symptoms decrease. What it does is keeps your nose from reacting to things that normally make it run and sneeze. After a while, it's almost as good as not having rhinitis! I know--I have it too and have used Nasarel for years.

Asked by Toya Simard 4 months ago.
hope this helps good luck and congrats. The mucus membranes in the nasal passages of the sinuses often swell and become congested during pregnancy, probably due to the same hormones that cause vaginal membranes to become congested. Some women feel they have a persistent "cold" or sniffles throughout pregnancy. Because the sinuses are an extension of the nasal passages, nasal congestion can lead to sinusitis. Swollen nasal membranes trap secretions in the sinuses, and fluid that can't drain, like water in a stagnant pond, becomes infected. Signs that you may have developed a sinus infection are: feeling of fullness or pain in the sinuses, alongside the nose, or over the eyebrows, snotty nasal discharge; increasing tiredness; or feeling that you have a cold that just won't go away. 5 WAYS TO SAFELY END NASAL AND SINUS CONGESTION 1. Avoid unnecessary exposure to nasal allergens and pollutants, such as smog and cigarette smoke. 2. Drink even more water each day. 3. Flush your nasal passages with saltwater nose drops several times a day. These are available without prescription, or you can make your own: a quarter teaspoon of salt to a cup of water. 4. Use a facial steamer (basically a hot mist vaporizer attached to a face mask) to "steam clean" your nasal passages and sinuses. 5. Consider nasal sprays (decongestants, antihistamines). In theory, medicines that constrict the blood vessels of the nose may enter the bloodstream and constrict the blood vessels of the uterus or placenta; therefore, decongestants should be used only under a doctor's supervision, and only in the dosage and frequency your doctor recommends. (Women with decreased placental circulation should be particularly careful about taking any form of inhaled or oral decongestants.) Some nasal sprays are safer than others but except for saltwater (or saline) nasal spray, none should be used without first consulting your doctor. AfrinR (oxymetazoline) when used only twice a day and for a couple of days have not been shown to cause harmful effects on the developing baby. Inhaled nasal steroids (e.g., Vancenase and Beconase) are in the "probably safe" category, especially when taken only a couple of times a day and for a short period of time. Best to stick with the lower potency inhaled steroids unless advised by your doctor. Cromolyn (Intal) is safe to take during pregnancy. It is not a decongestant, a steroid, or antihistamine, but rather a medication that when taken over a long period of time lessens nasal congestion due to allergies. It is especially helpful during seasonal allergic rhinitis or hayfever. It is not helpful during an acute attack of a stuffy nose. Nasal or oral decongestants that contain the following compounds have been shown to be possibly harmful to the developing baby and should not be taken unless all other alternatives have been tried and your doctor judges that the benefits outweigh the risks: ephedrine, phenylpropanolamine, Neo-synephrine, phenylephrine. The main worry with these decongestants is that because they constrict the vessels in the airway passages, they may also constrict the blood vessels delivering blood to the baby. Antihistamines. Some antihistamines, such as chlorpheniramine and tripelennamine, are categorized as safe to take during pregnancy (green light). Others are recommended only with reservation (yellow light), such as those containing brompheniramine, diphenhydramine, terfenadine, and clemastine. These have been implicated in causing eye damage in premature infants if taken in the last two weeks of pregnancy, yet this is a rare finding. If you have been taking allergy shots before becoming pregnant, your doctor may advise continuing these shots during your pregnancy, but because reactivity to these injections may change during pregnancy, your doctor may elect to change the dosage. It is unlikely that your doctor would advise starting allergy shots during a pregnancy. Cough syrups should be taken with caution while pregnant and are best limited to nighttime-use or to severe coughs.

Hello, I have been having trouble with fluid in my ears ever since I got mono virus back in September 2006... When I wake up of a morning I feel like I have my balance and I feel more in my body, but I have pressure in my ear's, because I can tell there is fluid in them, then when I start eating and I go to try to release the pressure by sticking my finger, or something to wipe in my ear, it feels like pressure is releasing and then it is like all of a sudden I got light headed and gravity totally changes, feels like I start floating, but I don't spin... There is also yellow water liquid that comes out of my ear when I stick something in them to wipe it out. I also have trouble with my heart beating hard/ fluttering at times, does this sound like I might have vertigo? Answered by Linwood Chavis 4 months ago.
No. You have described your symptoms well. Vertigo is the sensation of dizziness-specifically off balance feeling, spinning with nausea at the extreme. This is usually caused by inflammation or disturbance of the inner ear near the brain. It sounds like you have a middle ear problem or eustachian tube dysfunction caused when fluid builds up behind you ear drum and does not drain properly into the back of the throat. At it's worst this can cause a middle ear infection. Standard treatments include decongestants (by mouth-pill and judiciously by nasal spray) and nasal steroids (e.g. Flonase, Beconase, Vancenase). Last resort is myringotomy where an ENT doc essentially pokes a hole in the eardrum for drainage and to relieve/equalize the pressure across the eardrum. The yellow fluid is prob coming from your ear canal-in front of or outside of that is, your eardrum-prob unrelated to the pressure popping prob. Suggest you start by seeing your doc, or better yet an ENT specialist. Good luck! Answered by Gillian Buntin 4 months ago.
