Adverse effects of nasal corticosteroids

The majority of side effects from topical steroids occur within the nose at the site of local application. These side effects commonly include nasal irritation and nose bleeds . Should these symptoms occur, a person should stop using the nasal steroid for a few days, and then re-start the medication using the appropriate technique . If bleeding and irritation continue to occur, the nasal steroid should not be used any longer. A person who continues to use a nasal steroid despite these local side effects is at risk for septal perforation .

Study 2 evaluated the proportion of pediatric patients 12 to 17 years of age who had no headache pain at 2 hours following treatment. Headache response (defined as a reduction in migraine-related headache pain severity from moderate or severe pain to mild or no pain) and the absence of nausea, photophobia, and phonophobia at 2 hours post treatment were also assessed. As shown in Table 4, the percentage of pediatric patients 12 to 17 years of age with no headache pain at 2 hours following treatment was significantly higher for Zomig Nasal Spray 5 mg than placebo.
