  • For the last 3 years in the spring, I have developed a severe cough and peripheral edema. I was hospitalized for this 2 years ago when the cough wouldn't resolve and the edema became cellulitis. Antibiotics help with the cough, but the edema persists. Never had this so late in the year, usually resolved by now.

    I had been taking nasonex for about 16 months on and off when the insurance wouldn't approve it any longer....then I was able to get approval after 2 months of being off of it. (filled scrip in dec 2013) I used it everyday. I was not taking anything else except ibuprofen on and off when needed. I continued to get sicker. I had headaches, eye pain, ear pain, sore throats and a swishing sound like a heart beat. It went on to cause short term memory loss and confusion. I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension with papilledema. I found 2 articles that talked about steroidal usage as a cause for IIH with paps. I looked up Nasonex and found it was a steroidal spray. I stopped taking it on June 19, 2014 and for the last 3 days I have had no double vision, and no swishing in my ears.....I am hoping the rest of the symptoms will subside with time. I strongly suggest anyone taking this medication to do so with the ut most caution.
