> > I have recently noticed some bleeding that seems to be right at the back of my nose. I think nosebleeds is a listed side effect of Flonase. Did you start a different corticosteroid spray when you stopped Flonase? I've also noticed some decreased efficacy of Flonase, as has a friend of mine. I thought that was curious.

> No, Jann. I never started using another corticosteroid nose spray. I still use Flovent for asthma and take allergy shots, so usually that's enough. I used to use Beconase (before I used Flovent), though, for my nose, and never noticed having the anterior nosebleeds with that. The first time it happened, I got so scared - I thought I was having a brain hemmorrage or a stroke or something, and I raced to the emergency room - I've never been prone in the past to nosebleeds of any kind!

Thanks, Star! I need to call my allergist, I suppose re these two problems: reduced efficacy and bleeding--
