I am prone to sinus infections, so my doc put me On Flonase nasal spray. I'm just a little concerned about using it indefinitely. Is it safe?
This question has also been asked and answered here: How long can you safely use Flonase for?
Yes, I believe it is. My brother uses it and he said it really works well.

My doctor and pulmonologist agree. There are different forms of this medication. However, they both recommend sterile water with salt packets and a netty pot or the bottle version to use first. It is the surest way to keep sinus healthy. It may seem odd but is very effective. And I get chronic sinus infections. Many are viral, by the way. My docs culture before I get an antibiotic.
