I got a terrific headache from the spray. I could only use it once because I got such terrible head pain. I would rather deal with the allergy. Sorry, but there has to be something better out there that can relieve one's symptoms and not have such adverse side effects.

I don't get the itchy eyes, sneezing, runny nose - just sinus pressure and headaches during allergy season. Because I was having more issues on one side of my head than the other - not draining properly and occasional sinus infections, I decided to see an ENT in case there were polyps or other issues. My ENT gave me a sample of Dymista after my exam & not finding any polyps or other abnormalities. Why in the world would any drug company use a rose scent in an allergy medication? About 5 seconds after using Dymista, I got a very bad headache, and the pressure in my sinuses actually INCREASED. I could smell roses for several hours. Since I'm allergic to roses, I won't be using this product again. I'll go back to my normal treatment of using a decongestant & ibuprofen when I get a sinus headache.

I've used nasal sprays on and off for fifteen years. Most of them do have some type of side effect, but for me, it's been worth it. Much better than being terribly congested, which for me = NAUSEA, MIGRAINES, and with all of the phlegm production, CONSTIPATION. I have got to keep my sinuses clear in order to be happy. SO - Here's my opinion on Nasonex: Works great for me - I have not lost my sense of smell or taste. I do not get jittery or cold or nauseous or a headache after use. No nosebleeds or whistling. I have other issues, such as GERD, and this spray doesn't effect it (although I do take Prilosec daily). The only side effects that I experience are a redness at the nostril opening, and a slight burning sensation right after spraying. It is not a mist and therefore I tilt my head slightly forward when using it, and also "clear my throat" spit out any extra medicine (and phlegm) which drips down the back of my throat. I do not swallow it! I'm sure it COULD cause gastric problems if swallowed (just being logical). It works great, for me, and I used two sprays daily in each nostril at first, for about two weeks, and now only need one spray in each nostril daily. If you haven't tried it, it's worth a try.

I've been on Nasonex for over 15 years. Two years ago I was found to have a severely suppressed immune system! Immuno suppression turns out to be a KNOWN side effect of Nasonex. My Immunologist is recommending a LIFE TIME of weekly immune factor infusions that take TWO HOURS to infuse and cost $150,000 a year. CLEARLY I need to withdraw from Nasonex before embarking on any treatment. I have also lost my sense of smell, AND every place smells like some one is smoking! I only read about these side effects here today. Of course it may be that Nasonex isn't the cause of my immune deficiency. And if I stop I will certainly experience terrible congestion, especially at night. It's always something!
