Vasomotor Rhinitis
Considering my eyes don't tend to water, changing venues makes no difference and the season plays no part, this is no big surprise. I was rather surprised to learn that vasomotor rhinitis and migraines go together, however.

The good news is: No long shot schedules! No need to move (if it had been mold this apartment would have had to go)! The Allergist even has something he thinks (with the help of studies, of course) will work better than the Nasonex. Flonase. Which has gone generic, so no samples But he does have samples of his second best choice - Astelin. I am dearly hoping the Flonase a) tastes better and b) works better. Astelin leaves this wretched bitter taste at the back of my throat that makes tropical punch taste like cough medicine. bleh.

The Boy used Flonase recently to help clear up a sinus infection. He said nothing about funky tastes, but he did grimace every time we pulled out the spray.

I think I might have taken it as some point and I don't remember any downsides, either.

Much the suck on the allergy, but cool that they might have a remedy for the symptoms.

Sounds to me like a perfect excuse for a shot of whisky before and after each dose to sterilize the tastebuds. "I say, for medicinal purposes only".

The Flonase works great as long as you remember not to snort it too hard. :/ Then it does a funky drip down the back of your throat. *yuck* But, breathe gently when taking it and you should be fine.

*hugs from your sis* :)

I think I just may have snorted the Astelin too hard.
