Flonase and Weight Gain
If you are noticing weight gain with Flonase, talk to your healthcare provider. Sometimes, weight gain can be a sign of steroid overuse. However, although Flonase is a steroid, it is unlikely to cause such problems, since it is used as a nasal spray. Your healthcare provider may make sure your weight gain is not due to this and will also look for other causes of weight gain. If the weight gain remains unexplained, your healthcare provider may give you some suggestions, such as eating heart-healthy foods, exercising more, and limiting your intake of alcohol. If the weight gain continues, he or she may also recommend other lifestyle changes or possibly switching to another allergy medicine.
