I've tried many allergy medications that made me drowsy or didn't work. This medication works great for my allergies. Since the first day I tried it, all my allergy symptoms were cleared up. The taste of the spray is gross, but it only lasts a few minutes. It didn't cause the drowsy effect of some antihistamines.

This product has done wonders for me. Now, it does make me drowsy and I only use it at night before I go to bed. But I have been able to sleep throughout the night with out waking up with a stuffy nose. It's fast and effective. I have found that when I spray it in my nose and lean over to let the med to into my nasal cavity, I don't get the drainage into my throat.

I have been using this medication (after trying everything thing else i the market)and for the first rime in years I can breath normally. I have suffered from a "stuffy" nose causing severe lack of sleep evn inducing sleep apnea. Do not know yet about long term use...so far I am in awe

I found this worked very well for my allergies, but I noticed that my joints became stiff and sore when I used it. I was in such pain for going up and down the stairs, sitting or any movement, I had to discontinue use.

If you are experiencing a bad taste after using this, you need to read the directions for use. It did clear my nose. unfortunately, it makes me extremely sleepy and I have very lurid, weird dreams and trouble waking for work.

Comment from: alway stuffy, 55-64 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: July 02

Lots of nasal allergies all year long all my life. Tried all sorts of pills, potions, sprays...both otc and scrip...This is the first thing that ever worked. Headaches at first, dry mouth, very bitter taste but for me being able to sleep and waking up in the morning able to breathe through my nose is so worth it.

I have suffered with allergies for many years and have used many nasal sprays. I've been using Astelin for almost two years and I'm very please with the results. After applying Astelin, I get immediate results.

My doctor has been pushing this drug at me for a long time now in the form of samples. I finally tried it and it made me nauseated from the taste. I also experienced chest tightness, probably bronchospasms! Scared the dickens out of me since I am probably allergic to the ingredients. Beware and use this spray with caution!

I have used this drug for almost 4 years now. It has helped me tremendously. I was getting sick with sinus infections it seemed like every couple of months. But using Astelin, along with replacing some carpeting in my home with wood floors, has helped me significantly. I think I've only had one sinus infection in the last year. Great product!
