    Flonase

    I havent been able to smell for the past 6 or so months, so I went to the doctor and he gave me flonase (fluticasone propionate aqueous nasal spray). This is one of a group of medicines known as corticosteroids (steroids ). Corticosteroids are hormones produced naturally by the adrenal glands that have many important functions, including control of infalammatory responces.

    There are two main groups of corticosteroids. Glucocorticoids, which are essential to carbohydrate, fat, and protien metabolism, and the bodys response to stress, and mineralocorticoids which control the balance of water and salt in the body.

    fluticasone propionate falls under Glucocorticoid, but when inhaled through the nostrils very little is absorbed any where else in the body. Do you think it we were able to get our body to absorb this drug it would be beneficial for muscle building????

    It doesnt really matter either way, I just found this interesting.

    No muscle building attributes would come from a corticosteroid.

    Nasal corticosteroids are very effective against allergies and sinus problems if you are compliant with the doc's orders. If you don't administer everyday, then you won't get much from them. I think the time to maximum benefit for flonase is around 1 week. That is 1 week of using it everyday before the patient sees the maximum benefits. Skip 1 day, screw up the process.

    Hope you get your smelling capabilities back!

    peace,

    My Ex uses the stuff for over 5 years. Didn't do a thing for her except help with her allergies and she lifts.

    corticosteroids are basically the opposite of anabolic steroids , to oversimplify. In theory, enough could cause you to lose muscle (and fat, to a lesser degree) but the doses you are using won't have any effect whatsoever on muscle. Basically, this is a non issue.

    Taste is 90% smell. That's why generations of kids have held their noses when they take medicine.
