I have lost all sense of taste and smell after using the generic version of Flonase, is there anything I can do to get it back?
20 Apr 2015
I used Flonase only one time on 4-14-2015 and noticed 2 days later that my sense of smell was almost totally gone. I could not even smell natural gas. After reading other comments on the internet, including yours, I was very distraught, and was 99% sure it would never come back. I has come back as of today, 5 days later. I'm grateful beyond belief.

You didn't hear it from me, but your best hope is to get a prescription for Theophylline. It is indicated as a long term cure for asthma, but one doctor in the DC area has been having tremendous success curing patients with a loss of smell/taste, especially if they lost it during their life from an accident or situation like yours, rather than being born with it (like I myself am, that is, congenital anosmia--I can taste just fine). So, if you have a primary physician who's willing to give you a prescription for this now rarely used, but also pretty harmless drug, it is probably your best hope.
