 3  Deviated septum Extremely vivid nightmares, it was like I was stuck in a bad trip and couldn't get out. I haven't had nightmares since I was a kid! The things I dreamt were like something out of a horror movie. Nightmares stopped when I stopped taking it. Not worth the anxiety. It did help me breathe through the night though, however my nasal airways felt very raw when I woke up F 22 1 weeks

 1  Seasonal allergies post nasal drip Started having insomnia, waking every couple hours all night. Worst of all, weird palpitations and pounding heart, morning and evening. Discontinued it when I saw others reporting the same thing here. Not worth it. BTW nasacort even worse. Drug helped with hay fever/runny nose but not worth the side effects which seem to get worse as time goes by. F 67 28 days

 1  Allergies Started getting horrible migraines and headaches. Headaches would start with my shoulders at times. I also woke up once with such a bad migraine which resulted in a panic attack. I've always been anxious person but this was off the charts! I started reading reviews and connected the dots that Fluticasone is the cause of all this. My last dose was about 9 days ago but I'm still having anxiety, brain fog where I cannot focus. Jittery at random times. My head just feels weird. I wake up some mornings with racing thoughts and so anxious! Please please stay away from this medication! Can someone please just give feedback about when this starts getting better! F 35 1 months

 1  Allergies in throat Terrible drug. First night I took it I was feeling lightheaded and a bit dizzy so sat down snd thought I was good. Next morning I took it again and everything was fine until I got to work where I experienced odd pains in head and heart beating like crazy. I was feeling lightheaded and dizzy. I decided to stop taking it but I’m feeling dizzy and lightheaded for about 3 going on 4 days now. I’ll come back to up date the group on this Trash. I'm so foolish to just take a drug and not do my own research. I'm so upset and will look for doctors who actually know hat they are talking about M 26 2 days

 1  Allergies /Nasal Congestion Severe panic attacks started after being on this for a brief time and it took me finding all these reviews to realize the cause of my symptoms. I wanted allergy relief and ended up with insomnia, paralyzing anxiety attacks, nausea, no appetite, random pains and severe heart palpitations! I have been off of it for only 1 day but I pray these side effects go away soon :(. This has been so horrendous and scary. F 39 14 days

 1  Sinuses/Clogged Ears Anxiety, Racing Heart, Tight Chest, Dizziness, Lightheaded and Fatigue I'm never taking this drug ever again. I suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Flonase has made it 100000x worse!! I was taking it every night (1 squirt in each nostril) and wake up in full blow panic attack mode, like my body was rushed with adrenaline! I hope I get back to myself soon!! F 31 7 days

 1  Sinus Congestion Severe Anxiety and panic attacks. Sweaty Hands and brain fog. Derealization. Had some sinus congestion and pain so decided to start Flonase two sprays in each nostril once a night. First night taking it- got a cough and asthma symptoms. I didn't think too much of it. Second night taking it- was restless and couldn't fall asleep- my brain was super active and could not calm down. After the third and forth days of does I started to feel really sick. Came down with sweaty hands and had panic attacks with heart palpitations and bad nausea. Also developed a sore throat and throat irritations. Will not be taking the Flonase anymore. Made me feel much worse. Now have to hope the body catches up and heals. M 31 4 days

 1  Sinus and clogged ear Anxiety, tightness in chest, numbness in legs and hands I have bad sinus, clogged ears, vertigo and dizziness. So my doctor prescribed me to take Flonase or nasacort. I am taking this from past 14 days and observed tightness in chest and heart palpitations. It improved my sinus symptoms but I am having these side effects. What should I do to control my symptoms if I need to stop taking this medicine? I am really worried about my allergies. F 32 14 days

 1  Fluid in ears causing Vertigo I took Flonase 3 weeks ago from today and my life has been turned upside down. I do see slight improvements each week but it's very slow. It started off with panic attacks, heart palpitations, anxiety 24/7, depersonalization/ derealization, itchy/ tingly all over my body, muscle spasms, loss of sneeze reflex, tightness in chest and throat, intrusive thoughts, dizziness/ lightheaded and depression. I still have all of these symptoms but it gets a little less intense. It's been a super hard 3 weeks and my life has been turned upside down completely. I've started taking magnesium and vitamin B because Flonase depletes magnesium/ and potassium. One use in both nostrils made me feel like I was dying, which I'm not but it makes you feel like you're going crazy. Flonase numbs your septum therefore losing the ability to sneeze for a long period of time is very common. Please email me if you have any questions!! You will get through this! If you're having horrible side effects like me please reach out. F 22 1 days

 1  Allergies - Afrin detox back and neck pain, fatigue, brain fog, irritability, increased depression and anxiety, minor tooth pain, sores in mouth I was on Afrin for almost 5 months and heavily dependent on it. I went from Afrin to Flonase. The first 2 weeks I didn't notice any side effects and my allergies seemed manageable. I live in Los Angeles with horrible air quality. The last three weeks my depression has elevated to a unmanageable level, the last two weeks Iv started to experience serious pain in my back and neck, brain fog, heavy fatigue, minor tooth pain and probably the most unwanted side effect being irritability. I'm very calm and don't get angry easily but Iv found myself over reacting to the smallest things and snapping on people close to me. I take no other medications and today after my 3rd negative covid test in a row decided to check side effects of Flonase. Grateful for this thread. I can't believe this drug is sold over the counter. I wish I had never taken it. If you're predisposed to anxiety and depression like myself, it's not worth the risk and in general I'd say this isn't a safe drug for anyone to take relative to the wide range of possible side effects. Thank you for all of yours honest reviews. M 37 5 weeks

 1  Sinuses and allergies High blood pressure, Heart palpitations, blurred vision, anxiety, panic attacks and really bad vertigo STAY AWAY FROM THIS. I started taking it 2 years ago the Dr. recommend this for allergies and sinuses problems. I can believe it took me this long to realize all the problems I been having it was because this crap I started with heart palpitations, pressure in my neck, high blood pressure really bad vertigo I ended in the ER twice and I started to notice every time I take it I was feeling anxiety and I had panic attacks. I never suffered from any of this problems. They recommend again after my last vertigo attack and I was feeling worst every time I'll take it. I started reading the reviews in another page similar symptoms - is in the trash now. F 38 2 years

 1  Allergies Terrible side effects, similar to all these reviews. Anxiety, shallow breathing, panic attacks, insomnia. I want to encourage everyone who has left a review to post a follow up to see how you are doing as you recover. It's been a week and a half since I had my last dose and I'm finally sleeping better and feeling a bit more normal. Still uneasy in some situations that I would normally be perfectly fine. I do feel it's getting better slowly. Trash drug, please warn others. M 38 7 days

 1  Severe Allergies I took it a little over 24 hours ago and I'm experiencing panic attacks, constantly anxious, heart pounding 24/7, tight chest, throat feels like it's closing, dry mouth, dry eyes, feels like I'm going to pass out if I walk a short distance, head pressure, tingling/ itchy feeling, pain behind eyes, insomnia, achy. Stay far away from flonase. F 22 1 days
 1  Sinus issues Extreme uptick in anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder. After many years of treatment with therapy and medication, my anxiety and OCD have been greatly improved. However, after starting Flonase for sinus issues, I started noticing a huge, painful increase in intrusive thoughts and an inability to let it go. I felt depressed, depersonalization, and some irritability/lack of patience. Glad to find this site with information about what seems to be going on. Sending love and hoping for healing to all. I imagine this is a good medication for some people, but this one seems to have sent my mental health into a tailspin. Not for me. F 34 3 days

 1  Seasonal allergies Struggled with waking every one to two hours at night, couldn't fall asleep. I've used this stuff off and on for a good ten years. Also have bouts of rotten sleep and inability to fall asleep that correlate with its use. This and Nasacort are now on my s#17 list and will live with runny/ stuffy nose rather than ruin my life with sprays that can cause arrhythmia, insomnia, anxiety and depersonalization and derealization along with aggression.

FLONASE  (FLUTICASONE PROPIONATE):  Fluticasone is used to treat certain growths in the nose (nasal polyps). It belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. Fluticasone works by reducing swelling (inflammation) in the nasal passages. This can help decrease symptoms such as stuffy nose.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
