Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • After using the generic version of Flonase 4-5 times, I noticed my sense of smell and taste decreasing. Since I was just getting over a cold, I attributed that to the cold. However, my cold got better by my loss of smell got worst. I immediately stopped using it after reading the warning about it can cause anosmia as a allergic reaction. For the last 4 days i have tried saline nasal flushes and musinex to help clean out my sinuses but to no avail. I have complete loss of smell and of course taste.
