The other day my prescription for NasacortAQ (triamcinolone acetonide) ran out and I didn’t realize it. So today I’m left without a dose and man, I feel like SHIT. Like someone stuffed 10 lbs of cotton into my sinus cavity.
Anyways it got me thinking, is there any reason to purposely take a break from using nasal corticosteroids? Because I have been taking it since last summer non stop, even through the winter, simply because where I live it is dusty and moldy no matter what.
I know that cortisol is catabolic, but I’m assuming that because this is a nasally administered allergy spray, it’s gonna leave my adrenals alone.
So, can anyone comment on long term use of nasal corticosteroids?
