No, not the body-building type. I've been prescribed some Fluctinase for an inflammation of something or other up my nose. The specialist recommended two drops in each nostril, twice a day. I'm after a bit of advice from any of you medicy types who may know... First problem: They come in single-use "nasules", basically pipettes with a set amount in them. Each nasule contains the equivalent of about a dozen drops, and the instructions expect you to dump the whole lot in as a oner. Following the doc's instructions as close as possible, I've been sticking a bit up each, using maybe half the dose at night and the rest in the morning. Should I be following the instructions in the pack instead, possibly assuming the size of "one drop" is different to what the doctor ordered, or just carry on as I am? Second: Within 12 hours of the first dose, my nose felt like I had a spoonful of pepper rammed up there; I was sneezing like buggery and the thing was running like a tap. I'd already had one cold over Christmas but I'd shifted it about a week before. Have I got unlucky and caught a second cold, or is this a side effect of the steroids and their general reaction with my sinuses? Third: Because of this new cold, I've been using a Vicks sinus spray so I can open up my nose enough to get the drops in, and also get a decent kip without blocking up. Is this likely to affect the effectiveness of the drops? None of this is particularly serious so I'm not taking another day off work to see my GP - if anyone on here can help, though, I'd appreciate it!
