Nasonex Not Gluten-free
0

28 posts in this topic

My husband was recently prescribed Nasorel for a sinus infection. Nasorel is in the same family as Nasonex. He also had a suspiciously gluten-like reaction to it. The nausea was so bad he almost didn't make it through work yesterday, and was still sick this morning; he didn't take it this morning and eventually it wore off and he made it to work late. He's fine now.

Problem is, my husband is NOT a Celiac. So whatever caused the reaction was obviously not gluten, whether gluten is present or not.

I'm not at all saying that Nasonex couldn't contain gluten or that gluten couldn't be causing the reaction... only that possibly it could be something else besides gluten. I know I tend to jump to blaming gluten every time I get a little sick. But everyone gets tummy upsets, food poisoning, and other irregularities from time to time, not just glutened Celiacs.

Just a thought. :)

My sympathies to anyone who believes they had a gluten reaction to Nasonex. Certainly I wouldn't use a product I suspected of making me sick. However, nothing in this thread, or the linked thread contains any proof whatsoever that Nasonex contains gluten. Yes, there is some anecdotal testimony. But as we all know, that doesn't mean a product contains gluten. And just because a company won't confirm anything, there's no reason to infer they are hiding something. Companies are gunshy nowadays. They are in a lose-lose position if they say anything other than "read the ingredients".

Polysorbate 80 does not contain wheat. It's made from sugar.

I evidently posted in the wrong thread as I was referring to Nasacort AQ, not Nasonex.

Obviously the manufacturer does not know what they are putting in their product, as that was what they told me when I called. "Our polysorbate 80, the moisturizing agent in our spray, comes from wheat" Nasacort AQ made me sick for several days after one use, all the same symptoms of a glutening, pain, bloating, cramping, major stomach issues, constant gas, headache,as well as still suffering the heartburn days after.

My insurance won't pay for Nasonex. Still just trying to find something I can use, that is affordable and actually will help.
