Veramyst (Fluticasone furoate) Nasal Spray

Allergic rhinitis is characterized by inflammation in the nasal passages. It is usually a reaction to common allergens, such as dander, dust mites, mold spores and pollen. The nose may run, become itchy or stuffy. Frequent sneezing, itchy throat, palette, eyes, and ears are also symptoms of allergic rhinitis. Many doctors will prescribe corticosteroids to alleviate the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. Veramyst is a synthetic corticosteroid manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline.
The most common side effects of Veramyst are nose bleeds and nasal sores. Other less common side effects include nasal fungal infections. Corticosteroids can interfere with the natural healing processes of the body. For this reason, patients should avoid the use of Veramyst if they have sores or injuries in the nose, including those associated with surgery.
Patients using Vermayst should avoid spraying the product into the eyes. For this reason, adults should help children as they are using Veramyst. Some patients may experience eye problems with the use of Veramyst, including cataracts and glaucoma. Users should have regular eye exams.
Corticosteroids can increase the risk of serious infections (especially Chicken Pox, Measles, and Tuberculosis). Children using corticosteroids should have their growth monitored by the prescribing physician as they can inhibit normal growth patterns.
