 2  Hayfever Severe headaches! Chest pains. Insomnia. Acne I have been getting such severe headaches and was starting to worry. This is the only thing I've changed in my life lately, so googled it. Had no idea it contained steroids! That'll be the cause of my skin breaking out then I guess. But to see others have had such severe headaches gives me hope it's this. Hope because I can now control them by stopping taking this! One of my headaches lasted 30 hours and I couldn't get out of bed. I felt like I was going to die - no joke. The severity of it scares me to think about it now. Anyway.. It also causes pretty bad insomnia for me. And I'm very drowsy for hours in the morning which isn't like me. F 34 7 days

 1  Hayfever symptoms (headache mainly) Acute AF for 36 hours. Once this cleared it was followed by palpitations and anxiety which only stopped when I stopped taking the Beconase. This made me realise that I had the same reaction in previous years when it was administered. I will seek alternative treatment in future, especially since reading the reviews here. Very pleased to have found the link with palpitations and beconase. M 50 2 months

 1  Hay-fever Firstly I googled side effects of this spray and I didn't expect to come across this. I had couple of dizzy spells before but since I started using this for hay-fever last couple of days I noticed I feel shaky, and I had quite a few dizzy spells today which became severe like I never had it before. My heart was also beating fast and I could feel heartbeats in my head. It causes me great anxiety. I also noticed someone wrote they had cigarette smell in their nostrils, which is mind blowing given the fact I was at work and wondering why I stink of cigarettes (and I don't even smoke). Now when I have read this I won't be using it ever again. Do not use this, especially if you suffer from anxiety. F 33 7 days

 1  Deviated septum I used to take beconase 3 years ago, at that time I developed palpitations and serious ectopic heart beats, I had many checkups, was put on, and still on bisoprolol to combat this, it took 2 years and many hospital appointments to clear up, I am still on bisoprolol to control my heart, I never thought it was the nose spray. starting using it again 1 month ago and my symptoms have returned, I have now stopped using it and hope my symptoms will go away, It seems like this spray has ruined 3 years of my life, and I may never recover, please be very cautious when using it. Keep away from this spray, it could cause you serious heart problems M 50 30 days

 1  For continuous blocked nose I've had anxiety for ages, didnt even relate to me what could be causing it so was in a constant spiral, not thinking that beconase was the cause. I stopped taking it today, I feel unwell on it. Hit the sweats did not help me. Still had to use sinex to unblock my nose. I think the mixture of both of these messed me up. Giving me negative thinking, anxiety, heart palpitations etc M 28 35 days

 1  Post nasal drip Burning, painful sensation in throat and larynx. Neck feels very tight and swollen. Hoarseness and needing to cough. Palpitations and insomnia. Really difficult to know if these are side effects from this medication but they have appeared since using the spray. Never had anxiety in the past but feel quite anxious. I went for a walk recently and my head and head felt heavy and painful. Horrible sensation and I felt very stressed as a result. I will give this medication a few more days as it has been less than 2 weeks since beginning it, but will stop if these symptoms do not disappear. F 60 10 days

 2  Rhinitis Fatigue, very low moods & definite problems with concentration. My voice also became hoarse. This spray was effective for Rhinitis, but I think it should be prescription only. Far too many side effects for some users. M 58 5 days

 1  Post Nasal Drip I developed a weird sore feeling in my throat when swallowing like I had air bubbles that wouldn't clear, I also felt very teary and that's not like me and it made be very tired and also slightly breathless This should be a prescription only item as after I had a few different symptoms that developed after taking it, I realise a lot of people have had the same symptoms after using this F 4 days

 1  Potential hay-fever I took beconase for two days along with citirizine for potential hay fever, I've never had hay fever before but after being short of breath a few weeks back, docs seemed to think it'll that is what it was. (I had a corona virus test which was negative). Firstly the doctor asked me if I'd ever had anxiety which I said yes I have in the past quite severely, so when reading comments that beconase can cause anxiety I was shocked my doctor suggested it...anyway I've had no anxiety from it but maybe that's because I stopped taking it after the second day. Why you ask? Since taking it I've had this weird feel at the back of my nostrils and in my throat, almost like there's cold air just floating around my throat, it's hard to explain but it's a very odd sensation. Citirizine seems to help but going to avoid beconase. M 25 2 days

BECONASE  (BECLOMETHASONE DIPROPIONATE):  Beclomethasone is used to prevent and control symptoms (wheezing and shortness of breath) caused by asthma. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It works by reducing the swelling of the airways in the lungs to make breathing easier. This medication must be used regularly to prevent breathing problems (attacks of wheezing/shortness of breath). It does not work right away and should not be used to relieve an asthma attack. If an attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler as prescribed.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
