 3  Allergies nasal Easily angered, moody, sad, difficult concentrating, head ache. The symptoms are worse the first few weeks. I'm so moody and angry I can't stand myself😜 I am concerned that this medication could through someone over the edge emotionally. F 42 4 years
 5  Allergies, sinusitis Makes me hyper and unable to sleep if used later in the day. Works better then Flonase! A wonder spray, but use sparingly. I don't use it every day, only when my nose is so stuffed up I can't breathe. I have allergies, my eyes get puffy, teary and red. One spray in each nostril clears it up within a minute. F 39 1 years

 1  Sinusitus Raising blood pressure, hormones affected and worsening of the condition I believe this drug is dangerous. My family were all prescribed this at the same time. My wife has had a blood pressure drug increase, my daughter 25 has also had an increase in BP drugs, my daughter 21 has angina and chest pains and I have had additional medicines for overactive adrenal gland. All at the same time and 60 days later we are still suffering. M 62 30 days

 1  Allergies Persistent Canker Sores.... Although I didn't realize there was a connection until I stopped taking veramyst. I have been off veramyst for two months and have not had a canker sore since as opposed to having 3 to 4 at a time while on veramyst. It worked well for my allergies but the side effects were so sever I would not recommend the product. Also the mental stress that came with the canker sores did not help either. Throughout the experience I thought my immune system had been compromised, it was a bit terrifying. M 37 3 years

 1  Chronic Nasal Congestion Pretty severe pain at spinal disc in upper back, neck pain at base of skull, muscle pain in upper back, headache, difficulty thinking, weepy eye, blurred vision, loss of some hearing, bleeding sore in nostril, burning red puffiness nose and cheeks. Almost all symptoms affected my left side; back, neck, head, eye, ear, only my right nostril was on that side and spinal disc pain was, well, central. These symptoms came on very slow, it did not occur to me I was having a reaction the the medication. They became pretty severe. Finally got to a point where I thought I might be having a stroke or worse. Almost stopped at the Emergency room. Set up an appt. with MD, and it was only afterwards I thought these started after taking the Veramyst. 1 week after stopping it the symptoms started to subside. 3 weeks later they are almost completely gone. The pain in my upper spine is still there but is getting better, it was also the first symptom I noticed. I'm 48 and in good health. This scared the crap out of me. Thought my life had changed for the worse for the rest of my life. Just so happy it was the med's and not something permanent. Please just be very aware of symptoms if you do take this. I will grant I was breathing through my nose, smelling the world, and tasting my food like I haven't in years. I will miss that. M 48 2 months

 5  Chronic nasal congestion, itchy eye None I have suffered from allergies all my life and this is the most effective drug I have ever used. After just one dose it eased my symptoms and it has literally changed my life. I can sleep, I can breathe, my eyes are no longer irritated all the time. Best drug ever. F 47 4 days

 1  allergy to mold, dust, mites, grass Terrible headache within a few hours of using, irritability, trouble falling and staying asleep, not feeling like "myself." Works very well for allergy but at a high cost, too high for me to continue. Felt normal again in about 24 hours after discontinuing. By the way, the adverse effects snuck up on me slowly over the month I used it, did not happen right away. F 54 30 days

 1  Seasonal allergy/nasal congestion Anxiety, insomnia, sore throat, canker sores (6 at once), puffy cheeks, puffy lower eyelid, pressure in eye socket, poor vision, brain fog, depression, joint and muscle pain, flu symptoms, metal taste in mouth, irritable and "on edge". I thought I was going crazy until I started researching the side effects associated with these types of nasal sprays. Yes it does clear up my sinuses somewhat, but not worth endless list of awful side effects. What a HORRID DRUG - I stopped today. F 29 10 days

 1  unknown allergies Nothing at first, helped a lot, stopped my sinus probs and stopped my ear buzzing, that was for a month then suddenly the sinus probs and ear buzzing came back, I carried on taking it but now I have a constant horrible headache, blurred vision, depression, weight gain, water retention, and I just dont feel myself anymore. I had no idea why I have been feeling so bad but after a process of elimination and reading this page I have realised its the medication. I am going to stop immediately as I can no longer even read a book, my eyes are just not working properly. F 41 4 months

 1   I did not realize that Veramyst had the same active incredient as Flonase (inhaled steroid ) Which cause me to be susceptible to enhaled viruses. My profession puts me inconstant contact with airborne oral particulates. The drug lowers my resistance to viral infections, thus I become severely ill with pneumonia loosing weeks from work. For me there is a direct link between these medicines and my recurrent illnesses! My allergist did not warn me. My two pulmonolgists are clue less. The medical system is too fragmented and the doctors are too distracted trying to conform to new government regulations to listen to the patient. It will get worse. protect yourself ! The system is breaking!!!! Isn't it woriesome that you see and TV AD for a prescription medicine on the evening news and when you go to the doctor the next day you are prescribed that medicine? and several others!

VERAMYST  (FLUTICASONE FUROATE):  Fluticasone is used to treat seasonal and year-round allergy symptoms such as stuffy/runny nose, itching, and sneezing. It may also reduce other symptoms of seasonal allergies such as red, itchy, and watery eyes. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It works by reducing swelling (inflammation) in the nasal passages.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
