Though they each try to get your symptoms under control, they do it by different mechanisms which when taken altogether, can work even better than by itself.
So, using the table below, a patient can generally take one medication from each column at the same time (but not more than one medication contained within a column unless directed by your doctor). For example (highlighted in BOLD ), a patient can choose to take allegra, nasonex, singulair, patanase, nasalcrom, and saline flushes all at the same time.
Steroid Nasal Spray
Anti-Histamine Nasal Spray
Cromolyn Nasal Spray
Before using the spray for the first time, you must prime the spray pump. Shake the medicine well and spray 6 test sprays into the air and away from your face. Prime the spray pump any time you have not used your nasal spray for longer than 30 days, or if you have left the cap off for 5 days or longer. Spray until a fine mist appears.
It may take up to several days of using Flonase before your symptoms improve. For best results, keep using the medication as directed. Talk with your doctor if your symptoms do not improve after a week of treatment.
To be sure the medicine is not causing harmful effects on your nose or sinuses, your doctor will need to check your progress on a regular basis. Do not miss any scheduled visits to your doctor.
Use Flomist Nasal Spray as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and wait until your next regularly scheduled dose. Do not use extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
