I lost my sense of smell after using Flonase for around a week. It has been over 2 months and perhaps 10% of my smell has returned. Anyone else out there with a similar experience? Has your sense of smell returned? After how long?
Have you lost your sense of smell while using Flonase?

Yes, I used Flonase prescription for three weeks. I noticed on 3/20/16 that I had no sense of smell or taste. It's been over a month and it has not returned. I'm depressed and I don't eat right at all. I just eat something just to fill the void in my stomach. I don't care to go to the grocery store because I'm not interested. I can't imagine this going on for the rest of my life! I'm going to see an ENT doc soon. I don't know what to expect. I hope it gets better for you!
Yes..I took flonase back in March 2017 for about 2 weeks and over time I realized I could not smell or taste much. Sometimes I have fleeting smells but not much and little or no taste unless it's very sweet or strong and even then not much. I just figured this out having read
Several posts of others losing their smell. This is life changing and I am desperate to find a solution. I may have 10% ability to smell at best. The flonase was otc .What can I do? This is not right and no warning in material. I am concerned that my smell will never return since it has been six months.
I lost my sense of taste and smell after using the Flonase Sensimist for about 3 months. It has been a week since I last used it and my sense of taste and smell is limited to tasting only sweet, salty, bitter or acrid foods. My sense of smell is limited as well. I can smell vinegary dishes and those made with soy sauce but cannot smell very much of anything else. I hope this is temporary and will improve with time.
I have only been on Flonase for a week and I lost my smell days ago I thought it was because of all the air purifiers I have going on throughout the house since I’ve had all these breathing problems and last night it Dawned on me me I can’t even smell my own poop much less the cat poops in the litter boxes. I went around all my candles cocoa butter lotion’s everything I can’t smell absolutely anynothing. Also my taste buds are totally off nothing taste good. Stopping for Flonase today possibly new inhaler he gave me and also Singulair waiting her responses back from the doctor I already have an appointment with air nose and throat for next week that was scheduled before I noticed this problem. Just found swollen lymph nodes and spleen and my CT scan of my chest awaiting biopsy looks like I have lymphoma don’t think that’s the cause of losing my smell though
