Intranasal steroid sprays are safe for long-term use, and there is little evidence to indicate they cause significant systemic side effects. Patients who regularly use steroid sprays should undergo examination of the nasal cavity at least annually to check for damage to the septum.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
