Nasalide Side Effects
Nasal burning or stinging and an aftertaste are the most common side effects seen with Nasalide. Side effects of the drug are, in most cases, mild and generally don't require medical attention. However, some side effects of Nasalide are potentially serious and should be reported to a healthcare provider right away, including frequent and severe nosebleeds, slow growth in children, and frequent infections.
As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Nasalide® (flunisolide nasal solution). However, not everyone who takes the medication will experience side effects. 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 Nasalide. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Nasalide side effects with you.)
Nasalide has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials, in which the side effects of a group of people taking the drug are documented and compared to another group not taking the medicine. As a result, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
In these studies, the most common side effects of Nasalide included:
- Nasal burning or stinging -- in up to 44 percent of people
- Aftertaste -- up to 8 percent.
Other common Nasalide side effects, occurring in more than 1 percent of people (although the exact percentage was not reported) included:
- Nasal dryness
- Sore throat
