 1  For Nose Inflamation Started to have SEVERE anxiety, tightness in chest. The sides of my face around the ear are completely numb and I feel tingling and numbness in my arms and legs. I was given Nasonex along with an ear drop medication for a possible ear infection and earache from TMJ flare up. After taking both drugs for a week just today I started to have SEVERE anxiety as if I felt like I was going to die. My face around the ears are completely numb, you could poke them with a needle and I would not feel anything. The rest of my body hands and legs also have this tingling/ pins and need sensation. I went to see the doctor and he prescribe me some anti depressant and anti anxiety medication and took me off the drugs. The side effects are scary and I hope the numbness and tingling sensation for my arms and legs and face fades away as I withdraw from the drug. M 25 1 weeks

 3  Eustachian Tube blockage Anxiety, panic attacks, lack of energy, feeling of hopelessness, tired I took Nasonex in the past for a eustachian tube problem with no problems. However, that was only for a week and it helped within days. This time for the other ear, I was told to use the entire bottle. Well, lately I have been having panic attacks, anxiety issues, tiredness, exhaustion, to the point where I only felt comfortable being at home. Terrible. I will tell my doctor about this just in case, but I feel better reading these comments so now I know I am not alone or going crazy. I think it did help my blockage, but I will not use it for that long again. F 39 1 months

 1  Allergies Nose bleeds, nasal blockages, migraines, extreme anxiety, racing thoughts, rapid pulse, high blood pressure, eye sensations, panic attacks, weight gain, sebhorreic dermatitis, stretch marks. Everyone told me it wasn't the nasonex. Everyone said it was all in my head. Finally I trusted my intuition and weened myself off. I experienced a 2 week withdrawal. After getting off the rash went away, the bloody nose stopped and I lost a whopping 60 pounds in 1 month!! This drug is the devil. Today my allergy issues are worse and I have panic disorder because of this medication. Please stay away. OTC meds are much safer M 23 1 years

 1  seasonal allergies heart palpitations, full blown anxiety disorder, nasal sores that wouldn't heal, weight gain (35 lbs over time), THINNING OF BONES to the point of osteopenia, GLAUCOMA I used to be a size 8/10 before being prescribed this junk. It worked for my allergies, but it caused 10 years of nonsense. Who knew? Drs would tell me it didn't cause any side effects because it" wasn't absorbed into the blood stream." Seasonally I would outgrow all my clothes and feel like a cow, and after stopping Nasonex Iwould start to slim down again. Then another allergy flare-up would occur and I would start the Nasonex again, and this yo-yoing has been going on for 10 years now. I trusted drs too much. One day it finally occurred to me that this stuff happened seasonally. Sorry, just slow to realize it. Don't use this stuff!!!! It has taken a month to drop a dress size, and will probably take a few more months to drop the rest of the weight and bloat. Nose sores are healing, and bloody nose is going away. I'm using Nasalcrom, with great results. Dr's didn't know why my bones were thinning and why I should be developing glaucoma at my age. One day it all hit me like a ton of bricks. Shortly after starting this med, I had full blown anxiety syndrome for which I had to seek treatment. Never made the connection until very recently. Keep having thinning of the bones reports. Never made the connection until now. Eye spasms in one eye. Since stopping Nasonex, I was really tired at first and had alot of joint pain. Now that is going away, and I am taking Rx grade vitamins and Glucosamine/Chondroitin. Feeling and looking better. I'm sad for all the lost years to th F 55 10 years

 1  environmental allergies Chronic right-sided throat pain, sleeplessness, anxiety, bloody nose - at least once a week blood would pour out and not stop for a good 5 minutes It worked to relieve my chronic sinus congestion, but just now figured out the Nasonex was causing the right-sided throat pain. After many scans and tests by ENTs, who didn't find anything wrong, I decided to discontinue the Nasonex and see if that made a difference. A week later, the throat pain is much better. I also hadn't attributed the Nasonex to the sleeplessness, but since discontinuing it I am sleeping better, not waking up as much, and feel more rested in the morning. Now my sinuses are congested again, blood every time I blow my nose, and a little bit of sinus pain. Am hoping it gets better with sinus rinses. I also get immunotherapy injections once a week, so eventually that will help my chronic allergies. F 45 3 years

 5  Sinusitis and drainage problems It works better than your standard sinus sprays. You don't need much for it to work (once a day, one spray per nostril). It works best if you use a nasal saline douche first. I thought it was pretty good. It's expensive. And as it's a steroid, you can't use it long-term. I have a deviated septum and turbonate problems and this helps breathing, particularly at night if you have conjestion. 14 days

 2  allergies/sinusitis Deep head pain between the eyes. Confusion. Tremors. Diminished sense of smell and taste. Tingling sensations of upper back. Fatigue. It seemed like everything had a musty smell, though no one else could smell it. This was begun at the first symptoms of sinus problems to try to stave off a sinus infection. This resulted in having full-blown sinus pain. I had no nasal drainage and was able to breathe through my nose. I was placed on an antibiotic, amoxicillin 875 mg, I believe. First round did not get rid of my sinus infection, so the Rx was refilled. I continued to feel so awful generally on top of the other specific symptoms. It finally occurred to me to look up the side effects of Nasonex since I realized that I had become worse after beginning it. Eureka. I did not take it yesterday or today. My thinking is much better today. My sinuses still seem to be messed up deep in my upper forehead. I was so bad that I thought I must surely have a brain tumor or cancer of the sinuses and, who knows, maybe I do! All I know is that I have stopped the Nasonex and I feel better today than I have in months, even though I still have a ways to go in feeling 100% better. This stuff used to work for me, although I noticed the last time I was on it that I developed a dry cough, so I stopped it then. This time, no dry cough -- side effects were much much worse this time! Today I caught a whiff of an aroma, so there is hope. F 58 3 months

 3  Chronic sinus inflammation Sometimes I stop using for 1 or 2 months to see what happens when I start again. This is it: Headache, dizzyness, insomnia, nosebleed, dry nose, pain in sinuses, nausea, vomiting. After long term I noticed immune deficiency. No matter how healthy I eat and live I would get herpes outbreaks all the time, cheilitis, weird sores in and outside mouth and worst of all painful oral thrush. Canker sores, weird taste/smell, skin rashes all over the body, My inflammation comes and goes. All doctors deny that the side effects are from Nasonex. They said it would have NO side effects at all. How the hell would you expect that from steroids? All drugs have side effects. I will now stop using Nasonex, I recommend SinuSoothe (Natural) F 22 12 months

Days later eye blood vessel burst for no reason & eye was red for weeks then purple bruise appeared on earlobe all by itself..... Headaches too . It took me a while to link vascular issues to nasonex and haven't used it since. It's in the bin where it belongs. How can a drug company sell a product that can affect the vascular system adversely?

 1  Chronic Sinusitis None at first, then suffered severe vertigo to the point that it was making me vomit. Still suffering with vertigo which my doctor prescribed anti-sickness tablets. Loss of taste and smell which occurred almost immediately and is still ongoing. Developed cough with excess vile mucus. Have also developed intermittent vision problems were everything looks hazy. Unable to sleep, which probably explains the tiredness. Weakness. It is only after finding this site and reading about Nasonex that I have decided I will not be taking it anymore. I have had chronic sinusitis for nearly 3 months for which I have had 3 lots of antibiotics. On my last visit, my doctor discovered that I had a nasal polyp and prescribed Nasonex, which I have been using for a month, together with more antibiotics. Due to the severe bout of vertigo I experienced last week, he prescribed anti-sickness tablets. On reading peoples reviews, I will not be taking this product again. I only hope my vertigo, loss of smell and taste will return, as will a goods night sleep. Even though I cannot smell food cooking etc., I keep getting this constant horrible musty smell. I would give anything to be able to taste and smell food again. Hope this helps. F 56 4 weeks

Had a sore throat to begin with, which was even worse after taking the second dose of this med. Depression / anxiety. Couldn`t sleep. Conjunctivitis after the second daily dose (Which I had only just recovered from having completed a course of anti-biotics, and had cleared completely). A day later and all the symptoms are dissappearing. Cannot believe how quickly these symptoms arose...After only 2 doses.

 1  Sinus pressure Within the first week I experienced severe vertigo. Felt like I was constantly drunk. I also had itchy ears...to the point they would bleed from all the scratching. Next came severe headache everyday on my left side. Then came blurry vision. Around week 3..4 another side effect came, extreme nausea and panic attacks. I can not relax anymore, my heart is always racing. My hands shake and I develop chest pain. My doctor could not figure out what was wrong with me, had an MRI of my brain. I found this site and realized it was nasonex. I have been off nasonex for about 3 days now. I do not have a headache and slightly less dizzy but all my other side effects remain. I honestly think my vision is permanently damaged. I will be going to eye doctor soon. Feel hopeless and miserable. Not worth it. Should be banned. F 23 1 months

 2  allergies This stuff is horrible! I couldn't figure out the culprit til after almost two months of using this stuff; however, I'm glad it finally registered. It seemed like after i would take it, and every time, my symptoms would be worse, but i just figured it was because of high pollen days. But i specifically paid attention the last day i took it a few days ago. As soon as i took it i felt like my head would explode. Immediately my ears, nose and head felt full and congested and stayed that way the entire day. I stopped taking it a few days ago and haven't felt that way since.My side effects were: being jittery, anxiety, moodiness, insomnia, increased congestion, feeling out of sorts, dizziness. Would never take again, would rather deal with allergy symptoms. Definitely wouldn't recommend for a child especially. F 41 2 months

Three days ago I found my nasonex spray in my travel bag and started using it again. Since then I feel like I've had too much coffee, have palpitations, shivers and anxiety. It was only as I used it today that I realized it might be the culprit! Still have to suffer through today as I've only taken it two hours ago......but it will go in the bin tonight!

 1  sinus congestion allergies Eye pain, ear pain, extreme intense headaches. anxiety, palpitations and tight chest. Metallic burning sensations in lips and mouth. Sore throat. I have been on Nasonex on and off, mostly in the summer for sinus related issues and allergies for two years. First and foremost, it works and it works fast. However, after a while, I started noting symptoms I was having as I could not figure out what was wrong me. It wasn't until very recently, I had started to use nasonex again and started having palpitations, chest and eye pain and watering. I tracked my headaches - These headaches were intense, almost a burning within my forehead, all day long, every day - starting shortly after using the nasonex. I tracked everything. I started having anxiety where my hands would tremble minutes after I used the nasonex. and my body felt like it wanted to jump out of its skin with anticipatory anxiety.One morning, after using the spray before bed the night before, I awoke early in the morning thinking I was having a heart attack or an aneryism because my head was pounding and my heart racing. I am on day two of not using this product and I am stunned after 48 hours, my headache is gone although ear pain and anxiety/shakiness remain to which I am hoping will eventually dissipate. Anyone with sensitivities to drugs or predisposed with panic/anxiety disorder, be very careful. This product has scared me enough to stop using it and suffer with my sinus issues. F 47 24 days

 4  sinus pressure / allergic rhinitis Can cause nosebleeds in the winter when dry. Seems to be increased rate of ENT infections that develop into more serious issues. Rebound effect of swelling if try to go off drug- took 5 days to get back to normal after re-starting from a week's break. I seem to be more tolerant than most people on this forum. I CANNOT LIVE without this drug. Sinus headaches and pressure severe and daily without it- was completely dependent on daily pseudoephedrine (terrible for my high BP) without it, now down to 2-3 times per week. ENT diagnosed no sinus pathology- but allergic to everything. Taking immunotherapy shots for that now. Infections requiring antibiotics increased with nasonex, but 6 mnths of chiropractor seems to have cured this. Have some dizzy episodes, but that is due to ears clogging which is a symtom of the orginal problem, not the nasonex. No anxiety or crazy symptoms, but maybe this is because I take a beta blocker for lifelong high blood pressure which blocks this side effect. I do suspect I have cushings style fat on my face and neck however....but still worth it considering the pain I used to be in. I couldn't even function before nasonex. Headaches decreased by about 50%. F 39 4 years

 4  4 year old had a snorting habit Son developed mild Eczema. Seems more troublesome and tired. He was getting his dose at night. Also the potential for reduction in growth velocity in children made me take him off it. Yes I am too trusting of doctors and did not read the warnings and precautions. Did stop him snorting. Asked his pediatrician well the nurse if Nasonex could be causing the Eczema and she said no. Took him off about 4 days ago and the Eczema is going away. The eczema is mild on cheeks little on arm. Saw a study that some people get eczema while on Nasonex but it went away after 6 months. Have yet to talk to his E.N.T. that prescribed the Nasonex. Hope this helps. M 4 70 days

 1  allergies I thought was working well until i started ears pain. Which turned unto Ramsay hunt Syndrome and i now have Bell's palsy due to the inflammation. I believe Naxonex compromised my immune system and gave me a viral outbreak which is similar to the shingles. That's the Ramsay hunt syndrome. I have painful pimple like lumps in my ear and inflammation. Paralysis of the face. It's been awful feeling so sick like this. I was strong and healthy and the only drug I started taking was naxonex before I got this sick. I hate drugs. I just hate them!

 1  Allergies - sinusitis Over the last two years, I've used Nasonex sometimes for months at a time. I began to experience unexplained anxiety, chest pain and eye pressure last year. One night, I even went ER for a possible heart attack and they said I was fine. I stopped using Nasonex and symptoms gradually improved over the last six months. Regrettably, however, I kept it in my cabinet and broke it out the other day because it was the start of the hay fever season. I inhaled one dose, and the anxiety and chest pain came back within 24 hours. I have struggled with allergies and sinusitis for most of my life, but I would take all of it compared to the chest pain, anxiety, adrenal insufficiency, eye pressure, severe nose bleeds and who knows what else I've experienced with this drug. It should be pulled off the shelves and there should be a re-evaluation of corticosteroids in general. It has been an eye-opener to see I'm not the only one who's had issues. Clearly this drug is not worth the risks. M 37 2 years

 1  Nasal Allergies This drug basically ruined my life. I took it in conjunction with flovent (another inhaled steroid). The heart palpitations were so intense that it would wake me up in the middle of the night. After 6 weeks of taking nosonex and 3 weeks of taking flovent, my allergist told me to stop both medications cold turkey. Well, this is when I went through some sort of withdrawal. I had such severe anxiety that I was put on xanax. In addition, I would feel depressed for no reason at all, and I have NEVER been depressed in my life. It also felt as though I forgot how to fall asleep. I got about 3-4 hours of sleep each night but I was never tired!. Finally, one day about 3 weeks after stopping nasonex, I felt like a truck smacked me, and I couldn't stay awake no matter what I tried. I slept for 11 hours that night, and when I woke up, I didn't have the anxiety, depression, or insomnia any longer. I am now on my 5th day of finally feeling "normal". I feel horrible for anyone e M 27 6 weeks

 1  Clogged ear Dizziness, anxiety, hyper activity, "heart jumping out of chest", sore throat, dry mouth. NOW I realize that my crazy experience derived from Nasonex! For the past weeks I have been very dizzy, and I still am today, three weeks after quitting. I feel like something is clogged in the back of my head. I was to empty three bottles, during 2-3 months, but I quit after 8 weeks, not noticing any improvement. I thought I was going out of my mind completely! I did not realize that Nasonex was the reason for it, until now. I will see my doctor in a week. I already know that he will simply smile at me, not believing one single word that I say. I hope this tyranny will end soon! M 39 2 months

 1  Nasal allergies Doc failed to mention that nasal steroid sprays may have identical effects as orally taken steroids like prednisone which is a drug I swore I would never take again unless I was dying, and even then death might be preferable. Extreme anxiety, panic attacks, sore throat, head pain, constant feeling of thick post nasal drip, muscle tension, trouble sleeping, shakiness. The only thing that felt somewhat better was the inflammation inside my nose, everything else felt worse. I finally realized these symptoms were getting close to being identical with the experience I had with prednisone about 7 yrs ago when I was prescribed it to stop my throat from swelling shut when I had mono. I have immediately discontinued use of nasonex. If you would not take oral steroids or have had negative reactions to them, avoid this product as well!! F 28 7 days

 1  sinus pressure Ten days into using Nasonex my mouth, tongue & lips started to tingle, go numb & then begin to burn, all within 30 min. of spraying. Over the next 2 hours the burning progressed to all mucous membranes i.e., eyes, sinuses, mouth, eosophagus, stomach, bladder, urethra & burning on urination. All followed by full body itching, head to foot, shaky hands and anxiety. An already present cataract became a lot worse. Mentally, I felt detached and wanted to sleep all day. I have a history of sinus pressure on the inner ear causing vertigo, particularly when flying. Nasonex was used for about 10 days when symptoms appeared. I am highly sensitive to various drugs so when symptoms appeared, I immediately suspected Nazonex. Stopped using it and, except for the cataract, all symptoms resolved in about 48 hours. F 70 10 days

 1  allergies Within a couple of hours of spraying 1 spray in each nostril, I started feeling severe flu like symptoms. Chills, fever, nausea. I went to bed at 10pm and suffered with insomnia, when I finally did get to sleep I was having vivid recurring nightmare, like on a constant loop..and a sense of dread, with the thoughts that I was going to die. I will not be taking this product again. There is something serioiusly wrong with it. F 49 1 days

 1  Enlarged adenoids My poor daughter suffered from anxiety at school, chest pain, sore throat, no appetite, screaming fits, saying she hates her life and wants her old life back, saying she was going to die, punching her throat and crying non stop as well as waking up in the middle of the night crying. I took her off at day 6 and hope we see our previously happy, fun loving little girl come out of this awful nightmare. I hate nasonex and steroids. She was a classic case of roid rage apparently. Do your research, my mistake was trusting an ENT. F 8 10 days

 1  fluid in inner ear Hypersensitiviies, jittery, irritable, out of sorts, verge of panic attack, ringing ears I will definitely stop using this medicine after having these weird sensations/feelings the last two days. I will just wait and see if the fluid in the inner ear disappears on its own. This medicine is not right for me. F 47 2 days

 2  Cold symptoms Experienced bad headache. I have insurance that covered most of the cost of the Rx, thankfully. But when I asked how much it really cost, was told $188! For a small vial---seriously??? And that it was one of the cheaper options. Way overpriced for what it does. No wonder our health care system is in the mess it's in. F 58 5 days
