    nasonex question

    I just filled a prescription for Nasonex and it says it can affect your immune system and make you more likely to get infections. Has anyone experienced increased upper respiratory infections since they started it? I'm afraid to use it now.

    Thanks!

    I've been using Nasonex everyday since my sinus surgery, which was 2.5 years ago. I've only had one URI since then, so I think that I've been pretty healthy.

    Re: nasonex question

    I used Nasonex for several years before my nasal surgery and I was rarely sick. No different than now.

    GLSheridan, I'm curious why had to start using it after surgery? The reason I ask is because I think I may need it again. The surgery really helped me breathe better and completely eliminated my sinus headaches, but now I've noticed that I have significant drainage.

    Thank you both. That makes me feel better.

    Did you like the Nasonex?

    I was using Flonase prior to surgery, but I wasn't having any relief with it (though, I do think that surgery was necessary to find relief; the Flonase just couldn't do it's job). Immediately after surgery, my ENT prescribed Nasonex to keep things "clear." My allergist says that I can take my Zyrtec as needed now, but I must use the Nasonex everyday. It does seem to help on days that I'm a little congested. I just don't want to take any chances and have to go through surgery again!

    I've had no problems with it. No side effects at all. I prefer it over the Flonase, too.
