Nasonex Not Gluten-free

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Ouch I am sorry . I know how painful bone,  joint, muscle pain can last weeks for me . Hopefully you'll be able to clear it quickly if otherwise you have been healthy this season. As others suggested some TLC , vitamins, mineral to assist may help. I find accupuncture helpful too or massage. As for a gluten-free pizza I can no longer have them due to additional intolerances to milk. I in past days found sabatassos gluten free pizza carried at my local Costco pretty yummy if you can find it.
    • Maybe it was not the chili.  Maybe you are sick with the flu?  Sometimes, we jump to the conclusion that celiac disease is the cause of our current symptoms.  I know I have done this.   Hormel is NOT considered good, but it is gluten free and safe.  I give it to my kid on top of gluten-free pasta or corn chips in her thermos.   Add plenty of cheese and it is pretty good.  Though I admit, I used to think the burritos and strips I purchased at the beach shack as a kid were SO good!  😆 Even bad cooks can make a simple chili.  Follow any recipe, but sub out the spices for Carroll Shelby’s Chili mix which is even certified gluten-free.   My recipe is 2 or 3 pounds of cooked ground beef, 32 oz can of beans (I usually make my own beans), a can of diced tomatoes, and Hatch’s green chili’s.  I suppose you could add some cocoa to change it up.  Do not hold me to this recipe regarding the ratios of ingredients as I do not follow one as my batch size changes, etc.  I cut back on the spices when I see my family sweat!  😆    
    • This is really a general post about alkalinity and being in the news these days. Alkalinity is totally trendy, but I encourage people to educate themselves about this and not rely on trends. I don’t mean to suggest that I know everything there is to know about this, but, for example this site (http://www.foodenzymeinstitute.com/articles/digestion-in-the-stomach.aspx?list=bydate) states: [Certain enzymes are] only active within the pH range of 3.0 to 5.0 and require the acid to maintain that pH. Pepsin is very specific in its action and is simply incapable of digesting food enzymes, which are very large molecules and are more than just protein. This sites (https://www.livestrong.com/article/459954-the-acid-base-balance-in-the-digestive-system/) states Antacids increase the pH in the stomach, which might make the enzymes in the stomach less effective. I think the focus on alkalinity and acidity in our foods currently en vogue is a huge distraction and a big waste of time. To me, it represents the two steps backwards in the notion of progress. I’ll end with Dr Andrew Weil — https://www.drweil.com/health-wellness/balanced-living/healthy-living/why-alkaline-water/ “Don’t waste your money. Alkaline water is being aggressively marketed for its purported health benefits. It is touted as the solution for everything from helping the body better absorb nutrients to reducing the risk of high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and heart disease, as well as boosting energy, helping you lose weight and slowing the aging process. It is also said to be “more hydrating” than any other type of water. Alkaline water is supposed to achieve all this by correcting the body’s pH, its acid-base balance. In fact, the human body needs absolutely no help in keeping its pH constant. “ /rant
    • After my hiatus hernia was diagnosed they advised me to eat small meals spread out across the day, maybe that may help?
    • Ah I've googled it, as you guessed I was thinking of chilli con carne, this is something different!  Sorry I can't be of help.                      ps, no offence, am sure it's lovely but I did find this hilarious: https://deadspin.com/the-great-american-menu-foods-of-the-states-ranked-an-1349137024
