Made me very snappy and picked fights with everyone, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, very bad anxiety, depression, you name it , it happened. I'll stick with my navage, also could hear my pulse in my head, dizzy and nauseated ! F 38 0 weeks

 1  Seasonal allergies Started having weird arrhythmia. Worse in morning and evening. Achy throat, as if muscle pull. Chest tight and difficult to draw deep breath. Irritability. Very acid stomach. I usually use Flonase but have tried nasacort in past, so I picked up a bottle a month ago because it was available. Never again. The light finally went on in my head that the frightening pain in throat and palpitations might be from this stuff. Glad I checked here! Thank you everyone who reported heart trouble with this med, because otherwise I'd never have suspected this could happen. I've had AFib and don't want any more heart trouble. I would never recommend it to anyone. Dangerous garbage. F 67 10 days

 3  Postnasal drip & allergies It helped clear up some dizziness I was having and then I stopped it for about a month before my allergies kicked up for pollen season. I took it for almost three months with no real issues and, paired with Azelastine, it cleared things up. About two weeks ago I began to have heart palpitations that were worse than normal a couple hours after taking it. I was taking it in the evening and they'd wake me up. The other night they were so bad that I could barely move and had to take my heart medication. I already have tachycardia and this apparently started making it worse. I stopped the Nasacort and had much less of an issue the next night and none at all after that. The Azelastine seems to be doing fine on its own. I'm going to stick with that. Tachycardia is listed but not as a common side effect. It's a good medication, I just can't make that kind of trade off involving my heart so 3/5 for efficacy. Look up the full list of reported side effects, especially in the post marketing report, just to be aware of what to watch out for. But everyone should really do that with any drug anyway.

 1  Nasal Congstion Extreme anxiety and agitation. Moodiness. Low energy levels too. Racing negative thoughts. Increased anxiety should be listed on the box. Nasal congestion improved but these side effects are not worth it! F 36 3 days

 3  Allergies Headache, itchy and mild shortness of breathe. It cleared up my sinusitis but it also gave me a headache and makes me itchy all over. I didn't realize this was causing it until I stopped for a few weeks and started again today now I'm itchy with a headache the only plus is that I'm not sneezing anymore. Can't wait to get this stuff out of my system. F 23 4 months

 1  Seasonal allergies Within fifteen minutes of using product, experienced anxiety, shortness of breath and rapid heart rate. Several hours later, the symptoms have subsided but not completely. After experiencing symptoms, I immediately research side of effects of Nasacort and found that my symptoms were common. I would rather deal with seasonable allergies than to use Nasacort. F 71 1 days

 1  ALLERGIES Horrible! Relieved allergy symptoms, but caused anxiety, pain over kidneys, shortness of breath, abdominal bloating, high blood pressure, anger, hair loss, weight gain. Side effects are very common. This steroid DOES enter your system, regardless of what even your Dr. may tell you. Many people have serious side effects that last well after you stop using it. This should not be available over the counter. I've been an RN FOR 33 years. I know what I'm talking about. F 60 7 days

 1  Allergies I woke up this morning looking like I had been in a prize fight. My whole face was puffy. Especially my eyelids and my cheeks. Called Nasacort's number and reported it.

 1  Allergies Severe panic attack ... landed in ER. After weeks I still Was experiencing anxiety, panic attacks. Could not eat, good nights sleep. F 38 1 days
 3  Seasonal allergies Nausea, diarrhea, acid reflux It works, but the side effects aren't worth it. I have never experienced side effects like this from any medication! I had no idea what was causing these issues in me until I looked up Nasacort possible side effects and saw that other people had the same problems as me. The side effects I described are absolutely not normal for me; I've only ever had acid reflux as a result of taking meds. F 24 14 days

 1  Allergies Burns when sprayed in nostrils, makes me dizzy and causes anxiety and feel buzzy. I think it's elevating my blood pressure readings. Will stop taking it immediately and go back to using Flonase. F 68 7 days
 1  Stuffy nose Racing heart, irregular beats, vertigo, tiredness, pain in chest and neck M 44 4 days
 1  Allergies, congestion Have taken for 3 years and have suffered extreme anxiety as a result. I already have generalized anxiety disorder and my ENT basically ignored that and put me on it anyway. For the last few weeks I've suffered terrible anxiety and decided to Google anxiety & nasacort and see I'm am not alone!! I've been to the ER twice thinking I'm having a heart attack and both times was discharged with anxiety. So, if you have any anxiety disorder DO NOT TAKE NASACORT!! Plus it doesn't even relieve my congestion. Symptoms include anxiety, dry and sore throat, numbness in arms, clamy hands, racing thoughts, pain in center of back... DO NOT USE IF YOU HAVE ANXIETY OR SUFFER FROM PANIC ATTACKS. THERE ARE ADVERSE SIDE EFFECTS. M 45 3 years

 1  Allergies I already have high blood pressure but it was regulated with medication. However upon taking this medication I almost had to go to the hospital because it spiked so much. My heart rate also became very high and I gained some weight with no other lifestyle changes. This is advertised as safe for people with heart problems BUT IT IS NOT. I am trying to contact them to report the problems I had. F 28 3 weeks

NASACORT  (TRIAMCINOLONE ACETONIDE):  This medication is used in a variety of conditions such as allergic disorders, arthritis, blood diseases, breathing problems, certain cancers, eye diseases, intestinal disorders, collagen and skin diseases. Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of triamcinolone, especially if it is to be injected near your spine (epidural). Rare but serious side effects may occur with epidural use. Triamcinolone acetonide is known as a corticosteroid hormone (glucocorticoid). It works by decreasing your body's immune response to these diseases and reduces symptoms such as swelling.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
