I will ask my primary DR if I should try just using this and not ALL 3 ( I think that's ridiculous after I already have tried the Flonase with the Astepro for a while and did nothing)
Does this makes sense: I have hypertrophic turbinates (swollen) because of the dust mite allergy which in turn creates post nasil drip which then gives problems with eustachian tubes-crackling when swallowing)?
Does Nasalcrom take a while to take effect(like Flonase- a month?) Also what if any side effects that you know of? I told ENT Im trying to live with this annoying problem (am on Zoloft and Seroquel)View Thread
Went to ENT for my 3 month Follow up. Looked at sinuses with light- then wrote down Hypertrophic Turbinates again (But also says what do I keep temperature at at night) Told him 69 -said too hot keep at 65 you'll feel better-mucus wont be thick- true? TOld him been on FLonase 5 months-no help. Said to try Flonase/Astepro/Nasalcrom all together- I have tried Flonase and Astepro together already years ago-no help. Never tried Nasalcrom- what can you tell me about this spray? I think I will go over this with my Primary DR and see what he thinks- maybe just take Nasalcrom It costs alot to fill ALL these
Another thought: Does having a deviated septum cause problems like this(Post nasil drip and ETD problems?) I know the ENT writes on his noted that I have deviated septum. Also, are you born with deviated septum or can this develop?
I go back to ENT in a couple of weeks. I will tell him I've been taking Flonase for 5 months and still no help. He advised Singulair last time also but my DR says it could cause anxiety/sleep problems. I don't want to take a chance with that since I had those problems when all this started. I see commercials on TV abour Mucinex DM- or Allegra. Could these help?
Im sure you remember me I've been posting for years with same problem. I have been taking Flonase for 5 months now-2 sprays each nostril every night. Still no help-have constant post nasil drip and ears still crackling when swallowing. Should I assume that it should have been working by now-have read that could take several months? As you know, have tried everything-had tests-only thing found is dust mite allergy. I have been on Zoloft and Seroquel because of this problem.
Said to stop Astepro(used 3 months-no help) Try Flonase again-2 sprays each nostril once a day Also Singulair- I am afraid to use this as I read the side effects of insomnia, depression, anxiety. Are these real common? I may just use the Flonase for now. Looked in nose with a light-wrote down congested turbinates, What does that really mean?
But if the turbinates are inflammed, could that produce nasal congestion, mucus and therefore, give problems with eustachian tubes? Also, if I start Flonase again, how long do you take it to get results- at least a month?
