I used Beconase AQ for my sinuses and Qvar for my Asthma, both of which are a corticosteroid named: beclomethasone dipropionate.
When first getting on a corticosteroid, it can take a couple of weeks before it becomes effective. Corticosteroids are maintenance allergy meds, which are designed to be taken every day.
For me, after the med becomes effective at the dose that the doctor recommends, I try and find the minimum amount that I can take and still get relief.
I've got significant heart disease, and am mulitiple heart meds. These corticosteroid sinus and asthma meds are my only meds that don't give me any side effects at all.
