    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.

    Diligence worth the Results

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

    I am a long time nasal allergy/asthma sufferer, I have had so many infections and surgeries that I have little of my membranes left to protect from irritation and infections, but using Nasal Crom on a regular basis pre fall and pre spring along with my daily Singulair tablet has significantly reduced my annual sinus infections to near zero.

    This medicine REQUIRES DILIGENCE - daily use three to four times in the weeks before your seasonal allergies begin, and diligent use two or three times a week during the season is necessary to maintain protection.

    Side effects are minimal, in fact neither my son or I have ever experienced any kind of effect beyond relief. This can be used by a child but for them I prefer the Cromolyn Sodium inhaled solution - and am in fact going to ask my doctor to prescribe Cromolyn Sodium Inhaled solution for my winter asthma months.

    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.
