I have taken Fluticasone Propionate nasal spray for three days now - I noticed when I picked my finger this morning that my blood sugar was 128 - I am pre-diabetic and worry about this. I believe the number 126 is what the doctor says is right for pre-diabetes when you fast all night. Thank you.l

doctor1 MD

Hi and thank you so much for this query.

Fluticasone can cause moderate increase in blood sugar when taken orally. Sprays have very minimal effects on this. I will advice that you monitor your numbers closely and should they continue to rise, then ask your doctor if he could provide a substitute...

My son was taking Fluticasone Propionate and decided to smoke marihuana and drink alcohol with some friends. During this time he became very paranoid and started thinking others around him was trying to hurt him. So now he thinks everybody doesn't believe him when he tells you the other people was really trying to hurt him. He even called 911 to help him. Would him doing that in one night cause this to happen?

doctor1 MD

The symptoms described above can be due to marijauna smoking alone. One of the effect of smoking marijuana is amplification of thoughts, if your son is paranoid about his friends going to hurt him, marijuana will actually reinforce and enhance that belief. And alcohol may have compounded both his...

I have been experiencing a sinus problems/cold symptoms for about 10 days. I have been taking Zicam and Zrtek and using Fluticasone Propionate Nasal Spray. It seems to be about cleared up. I quit taking the Zicam several days ago. However, yesterday I began to have a burning sensation on my tongue. I can see cracks and what appears to be very tiny blisters on the end of my tongue. Could this be a reaction to one of the medications I have been taking? Should I get it checked?

doctor1 MD

Getting chedcked out would be recommended. The allergic reactions are generally pretty immediate so it would seem ore likely to be the ones you are still on and the zyrtec more than the prednisone.

doctor1 MD

Hi,
It seems that she might be having respiratory tract allergy producing allergic rhinitis.
Give her Montek LC syrup for 5-7 days.
Continue with nasal spray as needed.
Avoid humid, dusty atmosphere.
Ok and take care.

Hi. I have a head cold and I have quite a few medications that I am on quite a few medications already, but I need to get better pretty quickly. I am on Singulair, Advair, Claritin and Fluticasone Propionate. These I take regularly for my allergies and asthma. What I am thinking about taking is some Ibuprofen to help with my swollen throat from all drainage and then I have either Benadryl or Mucinex. And can I mix Mucinex and Sudafed?

So to get to my question I guess, what would be the best mixture of medication to clear me up quickly? Thank you.

doctor1 MD

Take ibuorofen, singulair and fluticasone, that would be enough
also take steam inhalation and salt water gargles

Hi and thank you for your reply. I am taking clopidogrel 75 MG, also have stents since 2004, have had a lower bypass of a stent in 2006. also I am on Simvastatin 40 MG for low cholesterol reading as well as high triglyceride readings. up until last month I was taking 75MG Plavix since 2006. also I take 24MG Hydrochlorothiazide for HBP. along with one low dose Bayler 81MG per/day.and last I take fluticasone Propionate Nasal spray 50mcg. I felt wonderful until I started taking Clopidogrel one month ago, in the Simvastatin? I get very tired very fast, have dark yellow urine, a greater amount of muscle pain. ( I have RA but not being treated) and have notice a big change in my vison and a lot of bruising! I never had these problems when I was taking Plavix? EDF is much worse! I am a male at age 63. Also I might mention I have not had lab done in over a year, and never had lab done let on these drugs Simvastatin & Clopidogrel? I have Medicare ins., but it appears they don t allow lab but once a year. Been wanting to see my doctor but having problems getting a appointment set up? So ins. would not pay for Plavix so he called in this Clopidogrel! But no lab in a year, so he has no idea of my problems! Last time I saw him was April, 2013. I welcome your input. Thank you, Robert Stevenson

I m military and in basic and AIT (both located in GA) I developed a odd sounding chronic cough. I went through numerous tests to include XRAY, Methacholine challenge, GERD, Allergy and others I can t recall. I also have rhinitis which I m told by the allergist is not due to any allergy (I had a full skin test). It mostly subsided when I was stationed in Ft Lewis, WA while I was taking flonase and zyrtec. I ve since been stationed at Hunter AAF, GA and now the cough is back in full force and my rhinitis is no longer controlled by flonase. An allergist back at fort gordon told me it was cough variant asthma( after successfully reducing the symptoms with prednisone and then advair) but the pulmonologist at both fort gordon and fort lewis insist that I don t have asthma. While my symptoms are present I have a shortness of breath during running and similar exercises but to a lesser extent in washington. I had no issues during my deployment to Iraq (my 2 mile run times dropped four minutes with no changes in behavior) I was 18 when in Basic and AIT and now am 22 soon to be 23. Any ideas?

On Sat 9/17 I work up with a sinus bad headache,,, on Sun, my left ear felt like it was filling up and getting blocked, so I did an over the counter ear wax removal. The next day I had some mild ear pain and made an appt with my family Doc. He examined me and said I have a sinus infection. I had no mucus discharge, look in to nostrils and they were swollen. He checked ear, no ear wax and did not see and protrusion of ear indicating fluid build up! Only front top, under eye, back f head sinus pain and left ear stopped up with ear pain. The Doc gave me a script for flonase and amoxacillen. I was to take the flonase and after 2 or 3 days if it didn t seem to work, fill the script for the amox. The scrip was for flonase 1x in each nostril/day.(The Amox was 875mg 2x/day) I took the flonase and it seemed to relieve some of the pressure for about 8 hours but the pain was reallly bad. After taking it the 2nd day my face seemed like it was swollen (at night time 1.5days of flonase) and I filled the amox. Now my left side of my face is still swollen I do not have front sinus pain, but left eye is red and tearing constantly and does not shut tight completely. I have no prob with my right side. It is somewhat of a challenge to drink (left lips do not move as well. Can not alternate opening one with the other cloesd (back and forth). I can not raise my left eye brow. I do have full feeling in left side of face. I still have ear pain. I used to have tmj and I do have some now. I have ear pain below and behind my left ear lobe. I last took the flonase this morning about 7:30am. I started taking amox. last night (1st time) again this morning and I will take it again tonight. I have an appointment with my doc again tomorrow am. Thanks in advance. ...I am Diabetic controled well by diet. I have had 4 hear stents (3 proceedures . in 05,06, 08) bp is very well under control. I work out every day for approx 30 to 45 mins on treadmill and light weights. Have not had a fever or upset stomach of vomiting at all with this episode. Thanks in advance for your help..... D
