 4  Allergies It worked great but makes me extremely sleepy that I cannot function, I'm hungry constantly and the bitter taste is intense! F 30 3 days

 3  Allergic sinusitis/rhinitis This seemed to work very well for constant post nasal drip that flares during allergy season. Unfortunately, I only took it for 4 days before stopping, as it made me incredibly tired and loopy/clumsy/foggy. I passed out from exhaustion for 3 hours in the middle of the day an hour after one of my doses, which I have never done. I am more sensitive to medications, so Im not entirely surprised I experienced side effects, but I was really hoping this would work. Just not worth it though. F 31 4 days

 3  Allergies WEIGHT GAIN. gnawing stomach hunger ALL the time. Documented, immediate weight increase. Dry mouth. Seemed to work well for allergies. It's just not that worth it to me. I have allergic rhinitis, allergic to wet and dry molds and dust mites also: irritants, like cold weather, smells and particals. It was paired with also taking Flonase 2x per day (morning and night) with Patanese (olopatadine). I stopped the Patenese in May. The hunger pains ended the next day. I had to use it one day and noticed the difference within hours -how hungry I was again. I will never take this again. It is not for me. My brain no longer is asking: Should we eat, did we eat, what will we eat and when will we eat again -over and over all day. Nobody understands that unless they are going through it. Sweet freedom !!

 3  Seasonal allergies This seemed to work great at first with no immediate side effects however after several months I noticed I was slowly gaining weight. I blew it off as something I was doing and not the spray but I went off it for a week and lost several lbs. Again I tried to tell myself it couldn't be the spray so I went back on it, gained evend more weight so I finally stopped using it for several weeks now and again have lost 4 lbs. In total I gained about 8. I know not earth shattering but to me it isn't worth it. Has anyone else gained weight from this spray? F 40 2 years

PATANASE  (OLOPATADINE HYDROCHLORIDE):  Olopatadine is used to relieve symptoms of seasonal allergies that occur in the nose, such as runny/itchy/stuffy nose, sneezing, and post-nasal drip. This medication is an antihistamine. It works by blocking certain natural substances called histamines that are responsible for allergic symptoms. Do not use this medication in children younger than 2 years unless specifically directed by the doctor. To decrease the risk for serious side effects, carefully follow all of the doctor's dosage directions. Do not give other cough and cold medication that might contain the same or similar ingredients (see also Drug Interactions section). Ask your doctor or pharmacist about other ways to relieve cough and cold symptoms (such as saline nose drops/spray, using a humidifier or infant nasal suction bulb).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
