My allergist is trying to clear up a sinus infection I've had trouble with for a year and a half.  The infection keeps coming back.  I'm rinsing with surfactant, taking Bactrim and Diflucan.  The one drug that seems not to be doing anything positive is Astepro.
 
Shouldn't I be able to notice something after spraying my sinuses with Astepro?  My nose keeps dripping, and I get dizzy, blurred vision, very sleepy, nausea, tinnitus.  The stuff tastes awful when it drops down my throat and there's a $90 co-pay.
 
I don't think my sinus problem is caused by allergy.  My IgE is normal.  I take allergy shots weekly and have not had trouble with allergies for over a year.
 
Of course I won't refill the Rx.  I'm considering just stopping taking the med after only 4 days.

It sounds like side effects are happening. :(

Yeah, Joy, but no antihistamine effects. Alavert at least stops the nose from dripping, and it tastes a lot better. :)

I take patenase. It sometimes drips down the back of my throat and tastes nasty!
