These drugs may help relieve congestion by decreasing swelling in the lining of the nose. It will likely take a few days of using nasal corticosteroids before you notice an effect; they must be used daily to sustain this effect. These drugs are often used with antibiotics.

Possible side effects include:

  • Dryness of irritation of your nose, including nosebleeds
  • Stuffy nose
  • Sneezing
  • Changes in the sense of smell or taste

If any of the following occurs while you are taking a nasal corticosteroid, call your doctor:

  • Severe coughing, wheezing, or trouble breathing
  • Painful sores or white or red patches inside your mouth or nose
  • Swelling of the tongue or throat
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Continuous stinging or burning feeling in your nose
