Steroid nasal sprays rarely cause side-effects. This is because they are applied directly to the nose and very little of this medicine is absorbed into the body. Therefore, they are much less likely to cause side-effects in other parts of the body. Occasionally, they cause dryness, crusting, and bleeding of the nose. If this occurs, stop it for a few days and then restart. There have been reports of nasal steroids possibly having an effect on behaviour, particularly in children. This is thought to be rare. However, a few people have reported hyperactivity, problems sleeping, anxiety, depression, and aggression.
If you require steroid nasal sprays to treat allergies and inflammation conditions in the nose, Oxford Online Pharmacy provides an online consultation with our GMC registered doctor. Please select your nasal spray and complete the online doctor's questionnaire. Your medical history will then be reviewed by our doctor and, if approved, a prescription will be issued for the cost of £. If you already have a private or NHS prescription, you can select the prescribed medicine and send your prescription to Oxford Online Pharmacy. Your nasal sprays will then be dispensed and sent in discreet packaging to you when we have received your prescription.
