Summer Allergies: QNASL Is Not The Answer

It’s the one of the hottest seasons of the year and as if sweat and sunburns weren’t enough to keep us grumpy, some unfortunate souls have to bear the nightmarish burden of summer allergies. Summer outdoor allergies are commonly caused by the excessive amount of pollen present from trees, grass, flowers, and other plants and are treated with various medications. A common treatment called QNASL, has found its way into people’s noses however, has come under scrutiny for containing an ingredient not suitable for everyone.

With Great Power Comes Great…Side Effects?

Among a handful of allergy medications such as decongestants and antihistamines, corticosteroids are considered the most powerful and potent of the group. They contain steroid hormones that build a barrier around a person’s immune system in order for them to be less susceptible to having an allergic reaction. Because they are known to have an intense impact on a user’s body, the side effects associated with treatments containing this chemical tend to be adverse.

Think Twice Before Using QNASL

QNASL, a nasal aerosol for allergies, has been marketed as an effective, waterless mist that doesn’t drip out of the nose it’s sprayed in. Spring 2014 published various allergy medication lists, ranking the best options available for allergy sufferers. Different lists included the same products such as Benadryl, Claritin, Sudafed, and Zyrtec however, none listed QNASL. Why? Many of these over the counter drugs get the job done and depending on the user, may spare them of side effects. QNASL is a more powerful prescription drug that, besides handling your allergies, guarantees to keep common side effects at bay such as watery eyes and sneezing. But because it’s so potent, more serious reactions have occurred during its use. Some noted effects QNASL users have experienced include:

  • Weakened body and immune system which increases risk of getting an infection
  • Glaucoma or cataracts
  • Growth issues among children
  • Persistent nasal sores
  • Serious nose bleeds
  • Serious allergic reactions to the medication itself
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Flu-like symptoms

It’s summer time and the sneezes are in the air. Consider conducting some research before you use allergy fighters like QNASL. If you or someone you know has experienced adverse side effects while using QNASL, seek legal guidance by an experienced personal injury attorney to receive compensation for your emotional suffering.
