I was prescribed nasonex and used it for 10 days for a sinus infection. Now they believe it may be allergies and prescribed omnaris. My pharmacist couldn't explain why omnaris would be better than nasonex. As well should you use these drugs for 30 days in a row?
Omnaris and Nasonex are both topical nasal steroids. They belong to a class of drugs that are probably the most effective at treating nasal allergies. They usually take about two weeks before their full effect is felt and work about the same. Omnaris is newer and the risk of developing systemic side effects is meant to be lower - this may be the reason your doctor is recommending it. They are both safe to take all year round if necessary.
