Comment from: Tyler, 25-34 Female on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: January 16

I am a 28 year old male and have been battling sinus congestion for most of my life. I gave up on Nasel spray a couple of years ago and started taking Claritin-D every day for years. It worked great but my kidneys took a beating and I started having bad kidney pain because of the decongestant. My doctor prescribed me Nasonex and after 3 or 4 bad nights it started working. It works fairly well but sometimes I feel that I can't breath very deeply when I play sports, I don't know if there is a mucas build up or some other side effect.

I have allergies year round, they sometimes turn into sinus infections so I have tried everything, claritin, allegra, etc.Finally a ENT put me on nasonex and it is like a wonder drug. In less than a week, no more stuffiness and I can sleep at night without my nose being stopped up. It is a miracle, I wish I would have tried it 5 years ago. I haven't experienced any of the numbness and loss of smell or taste. and I like it because it is not a steriod.

I took neo-synephrine like nasal spray 5+ times a day for almost 22 years. In less than 3 weeks I am down to once a day and hope to get it to zero. So far so good.

I've only been using for a few days and noticed a numbness in my tongue and loss of taste. I've also had strange things happen with my eyes in sunlight. I'm seeing halos and hallucinogenic like colors that don't exist. After reading the comments here, I am stopping the use of this drug immediately.

Nasonex worked fine at first but then I started with a dry hacking cough from it. It caused my asthma to act up so I have to stop it.

Every morning when I inhale this drug I have severe coughing as it runs down into my throat almost choking me. I am speaking to my doctor about an alternative to rthis medication

Comment from: Brooke, 45-54 on Treatment for 10+ years (Patient) Published: May 15

I've been using Nasonex on and off for about 10 years. I get occasionally nose bleeds and my immune system breaks down after using for more than 3 weeks. It works when I do use it but when I get the side effects I take a break and until I'm really really in need. I try to use it as a preventative and also when my nasals are inflammed.
