Allergies Home > Veramyst Side Effects

Fever, headaches, and nosebleeds are among the most common side effects reported with Veramyst. Side effects of the medicine are minor in most cases and usually don't require treatment. There are, however, a number of potentially serious Veramyst side effects that may require medical attention, such as frequent and severe nosebleeds, glaucoma or cataracts, signs of steroid toxicity, and slow growth in children.

Veramyst Side Effects: An Introduction

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Veramyst™ (fluticasone furoate nasal spray). However, not everyone who takes the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Veramyst. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Veramyst side effects with you.)
