I took two puffs in each nostril, twice a day, for about ten years, without any problems whatsoever, and it worked great. So...... I guess what that means is: what is one person's poison can be another person's pleasure. I no longer take Nasonex, or any other nasal spray, so I can't say if I would have had a problem if I had stayed on it.
When my sinuses are irritated, because or turbinate swelling, an irritation within my nasal areas, or some other allergic reaction, my discharge will be discolored and slightly thick. However, when I have damage and infection in my nasal membranes, the discharge is thick and chunky, similar to what you experience.
