Re: Nasal sprays
This is a response I posted in another post, but I think it might help you:
The problem with Flonase is if you are really congested it doesn't get where it needs to be to start working. I would continue to take the Sudaphed to help clear your sinuses. Also, here is what I do to get the most out of the Flonase. Take a shower, this will help clear your sinuses. Then use a saliene nosespray,( I use ENTsol) and blow your nose. This will help get some of the gunk out. When you use your flonase keep your chin down on your chest and look down at your feet. Think of aiming the flonase towards your ear when you squirt it in. Do your first squirts, then wait 1-2 minutes then do the second squirt. This will allow the first squirt to work and help get the second one further into your nose.
All of these steps were recommended by my allergist. Before he told me this, I never felt flonase worked that great. Now I think of it as a minor miracle. If you have congestion, my doc says using Flonase is like putting water on oil, it doesn't get to where it needs to be. These steps will help!
