    Nasalcrom is a very misunderstood medication. Extremely effective if used properly and ineffective if not. It is the ideal drug--a very long history of safety without the side effects of other meds. It is available without a prescription (or as a generic: cromolyn nasal spray). You must start 3-4 weeks before your season starts (for tree pollen allergy start at least by March 1, for grass pollens start April 1, and for ragweed, start the third week in July); use it once or twice in each nostril at least twice daily regularly. When the season starts increase to 3-4 times daily or even every 3 hours if needed. Don't stop even if you are feeling fine; continue until the season of your hay fever is well over. There's no harm in using Nasalcrom indefinitely. If you have started early enough you may not need any other meds but if you do have some symptoms you may use any other meds--antihistamines or steroid nasal sprays-- but keep on with the Nasacort (if using other sprays, allow 1-2 hours between the two sprays).If you are unfortunate enough to have a runny nose year 'round, you may use Nasalcrom regularly 1-2 times daily. In 30 years of allergy practice, I found that patients who exactly followed the above directions had excellent relief. The problem arises when a patient starts using Nasalcrom when they are having hay fever; the Nasalcrom will just wash out and will not help. Nasalcrom seems to have a long term protective effect--patients who used it properly and faithfully appeared to have less and less difficulty over the years. (For eye symptoms you may also use cromolyn eye drops twice daily regularly and other eye drops if needed.) The important message: you must have the discipline to use Nasalcrom regularly during a month before the allergy season when you are not having any symptoms.

    From all the glowing reviews I read I expected this to be some sort of miracle worker, but really I'm sad to say did not do much for me. I have severe allergies that extend beyond seasonal. I think this product works best if you have only occasional sinus or allergy problems or some seasonal issues, but I am very allergic to dust mites, which of course are everywhere year round, so I need constant flushing of my nasal passages and sinuses. I have been using this in conjunction with a nasal rinse and the days I use both I get relief and feel better, but if I don't use the rinse along with this (as I didn't for a few days to test it out) it has no effect on it's own. I also was slightly confused about how to use it-the instructions were not specific. Are you supposed to breath it in as you spray in each nostril? Are you supposed to just spray it in and let it drip out? The instructions simply said to spray once in each nostril...that's it.

      Comments about NasalCrom Nasal Allergy Symptom Controller Spray, .44 fl oz:

      I have had allergies for my whole life. Nasalcrom has worked pretty well in addressing them. I take it every morning - just one puff in each nostril. I find that it's most effective if I use Flonase too - just one puff on each side each night. My doctor had suggested the combination, and I agree - it seems to work pretty well for me.

          Comments about NasalCrom Nasal Allergy Symptom Controller Spray, .44 fl oz:

          My allergist recommended this to me years ago because (a) I couldn't use steroidal sprays and (b) oral antihistamines did absolutely nothing to relieve my seasonal allergies. Even though recommendations are to start using this several weeks before the allergy season starts, this year I commenced usage after the season started - after my head was already fully congested. I had significant relief within 24 hours and almost full relief within 48 hours. I couldn't function without this.

            Comments about NasalCrom Nasal Allergy Symptom Controller Spray, .44 fl oz:

            The past two weeks, I've had horrendous allergies. I tried Claritin, Zyrtec and Allegra, with minimal relief. Usually one of those will do the trick for me, but not this year.

            I figured I'd look online for one last try before going to the doctor for a prescription med. I found the "Wow!" reviews for Nasalcrom, but was still a bit skeptical since my allergies were so bad.

            I am so glad I tried it! First day, no real improvement, but thought I'd stick with it since it said it can take a week or two to fully work. Woke up this morning and realized I'd mostly slept through the night (huge improvement) and that my face no longer felt puffy. Sinus pressure is gone!

            I'm really blown away it helped so quickly because I was in bad shape. I no longer feel like I have a pumpkin head. Can't recommend Nasalcrom highly enough!

                Comments about NasalCrom Nasal Allergy Symptom Controller Spray, .44 fl oz:

                You have to use it in the beginning the recommended 3-4 times per day for the first few weeks. After a while you can back off the dosage to as low as you can and still have it be effective. I use two squirts per nostril in the morning, and the evening before I go to bed. This stuff has kept me from getting any illness. I literally have only had a few mild colds (allergies) in 22 years and no flu. I think this stuff is the best drug on earth. If they stop making it, I will learn how to make it myself.

                  Comments about NasalCrom Nasal Allergy Symptom Controller Spray, .44 fl oz:

                  Great stuff that protects you from seasonal allergies. I recommend this to all my family and friends and they are amazed how well it acts after using it regularly for a few days. It takes time to build effectiveness (about 5-7 days), but once it goes into effect, you won't mind that the flowers are blooming and pollen is in the air.

                  Remember, this won't replace your "immediate relief" allergy medications. But it does build a good, intermediate defense that lessens the effect of what causes allergies.

This was recommended on Dr. Weil's site, which is why I tried it in the first place. So glad I did. No more antibiotics for sinus infections. This works like a miracle.

                      I asked my pharmasist, after a long day of allergy suffering, what she recommended. Works better than anything I've used in the past for nasal congestion. As a dental hygienist, I see many patients who suffer from allergies and have a hard time breathing through their noses while I'm working on them. I tell them about my experiences with NASALCROM and many have tried it with great results.

                      NasalCrom Nasal Allergy Symptom Controller Spray

                       – Safe, effective NasalCrom Nasal Allergy Symptom Controller Spray goes beyond relief of allergy symptoms, to actually help minimize symptoms before they begin. The full-strength cromolyn sodium nasal solution (NSP) works to relieve and minimize the onset of congestion, sneezing and the runny and itchy nose that can accompany seasonal and year-round allergies. The formula is not an antihistamine, decongestant or corticosteroid. Instead, it works by interrupting the allergy reaction cycle. Applied with a fast and convenient metered spray, it is not habit-forming and does not cause drowsiness or jitters.

                      Relief and Prevention



                      Possibly the most annoying symptoms of an allergy attack, runny and itchy nose are caused when the mast cells in the mucous membranes release histamines in reaction to the presence of pollen, pet dander or other allergens. The unique approach of NasalCrom Nasal Allergy Symptom Controller Spray is to block this release, relieving symptoms even before they begin. Use of the spray before allergy exposure even begins can help suppress the cause of allergy-related miseries. According to NasalCrom, continued use can also help build protection against future symptoms.

                      Safety Profile



                      The symptom-blocking formula of NasalCrom Nasal Allergy Symptom Controller Spray is generally safe to use with other medications, including other allergy relief products. It does not have the side effects commonly found with antihistamines, decongestants or corticosteroids. This means no drowsiness or jitters and no "rebound" of nasal congestion. It can be used throughout the allergy season, even for year-round allergies. It is even safe for children as young as 2 years of age. However, talk to your pediatrician before using this product on a child. Consult with a doctor before using if you are being treated for sinus infection or asthma, or if shortness of breath, wheezing or chest tightness occurs during use. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should also ask a doctor before using the spray. To prevent the spread of germs, the spray applicator should not be shared.
