Upsides and benefits › Available over the counter without a prescription. › First-choice medication for treating runny and stuffy noses caused by allergies. It works by reducing inflammation in the nose. › Because it's used directly where the inflammation is happening, it has fewer side effects than oral steroids do and has a lower chance of causing withdrawal symptoms once the medication is stopped. › Dimetapp Cold And Allergy (Phenylephrine / Brompheniramine) is a combination medicine with a decongestant and an antihistamine that's helpful in treating nasal symptoms related to cold and allergy. › Brompheniramine (the antihistamine) is useful for itchy eyes, runny nose, or constant sneezing. › Phenylephrine (the decongestant) is good for relieving congestion. Downsides and risks › Can't be used on as-needed basis. Must be taken every day. › Doesn't have a counter on it, so it can be hard to remember how many sprays are left. › Since the medicine in Nasacort Aq (Triamcinolone) is a steroid, it can slow down your healing process if you've hurt your nose or had nose surgery. › Needs to be primed before use and re-primed if not used for more than 2 weeks. › If you don't really need both of the medications in this combination, you'd be taking extra medicine and might have extra side effects for no reason. › Brompheniramine (the antihistamine) can cause dizziness, drowsiness, dry eyes/mouth, and constipation. › Phenylephrine (the decongestant) doesn't last as long as other oral decongestants like pseudoephedrine, but can cause jitteriness. › The two medications in this medicine can somewhat work against each other, with one making you sleepy and the other making you jittery. Tips from our pharmacists for people taking the medication › Use Nasacort Aq (Triamcinolone) once a day, following age-specific recommendations on how many sprays to use. Don't take more than prescribed. › Blow your nose before using. › Can cause thrush (a fungal infection) inside the nose and throat. › Can also cause nosebleeds, a sore throat, and headaches. › Needs to be used regularly during allergy season for it to work. It can take 1 to 2 weeks for the medicine to start working fully. › Check with your doctor or pharmacist on how to use the nasal spray the right way. › Shake well before using it. Before the first use, prime the bottle by spraying it until you see a fine mist. › Only use the provided dosage cup to measure the medicine. Don't use a spoon. › Follow the age-specific dosing instructions on how much to take. Don't take more than what's recommended on the package. › Talk to a doctor if the symptoms don't get better in 1 week.
