“I was prescribed by my doctor Nasonex for my polyps. I used it on and off for couple of years but only yesterday did it dawn on me that all these while, whenever I felt sickly with a very dry throat, difficulties in breathing, wheezing, trembling hands, dizziness, pressure behind my eyes, headache, muscle pains, neck pain, blurred vision, lost of balance, ear pains, difficulties in swallowing and chest pains was all from after using Nasonex! I thought what was wrong with me. Even went to an emergency room thinking I was getting a stroke or a heart attack. Then I realised last night that all these symptoms only occur whenever I use Nasonex but whenever I stopped using it, all of these symptoms would subside. So, I Googled for reviews and saw so many people have experienced these bad side effects. I wish I knew sooner!”

“I have had polyps removed 6 times now and have been using Nasonex since it first came on the market. Maybe it stopped some growing but for the past 5 months I have suffered headaches every day. Maybe I've used Nasonex for too many years for this to start happening. Since stopping the Nasonex my headaches have ceased. What a relief.”

“About two years ago, I stayed home sick with what I thought was the flu. After about a week of misery and no relief I went to the doctor. He told me that all the awful, flu-like symptoms were actually my hay fever acting up and because I had waited too long to come in I now had nasal polyps. Many members of my extended family has had them and treated them with Nasonex or even surgery (my aunt can't taste or smell now). Since then, I've used Nasonex nearly every night. There's a very obvious difference between nights I take it and nights that I forget - I tend to wake up with throat congestion and a runny nose. Only once have I actually had a full-on nosebleed.”

“Pump action spray is terrible I prime it have a couple of sprays ,and then it comes out in drips . So I repeat the priming again Until I get a spray , meanwhile I’m pumping half of my medication into the air . I use this product on and off for years as needed. It is excellent , but please fix the bottle . Other products I use , such as Fess spray works excellent So why not yours For the price I don’t want to waste it”

“Constantly stuffed up nose. Dr recommended taking it for a couple weeks. After day 4 I had extreme rage. I would flip out over the slightest thing like someone cutting me off driving.”

“The delivery system for Nasonex is terrible. I have switched to Sensease which is the same medication just different brand that has a much more effective dispenser.”
