I recently had a horrible nosebleed that required 2 trips to the ER, an overnight observation stay in hospital and a rhino rocket inserted for 6 days. (Once, I bled around the rhino rocket!). I am 3 weeks out from that and am beginning to have sinus problems again! I used to use Zyrtec and Flonase for my sinus but now I am frightened to use anything. Doctors assured me the medications did not cause my posterior bleed, but I cannot imagine what did! I am wondering if I can safely use the Zyrtec. I almost always have sinus troubles, but the Zyrtec and Flonase controlled it. I do not EVER want to go through those terrible nosebleeds again!View Thread
