  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I was prescribed Fluticasone Propionate for really bad Allergic Sinusitis however it gave me a real bad headache and it also effected my sugar level dropping it to 71 and I became very thirsty and disoriented and I had a small glass of orange juice to bring the sugar back up I'm a healthy 30 year old male with no history of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in fact I just had a yearly psychical and the lab work came back perfect so it's most likely caused by the drug "Fluticasone Propionate" aka Flonase.
