Hi Tom,

>My main symptom is a very blocked nose, all the time, its very annoying when I'm trying to sleep.
I imagine an anti-hystamine would work for my symptoms

I don't think Beconase will interact with Marplan. Even so, here are some points.......

*Steroid nasal sprays are the most effective treatment for congestion (blocked nose).

*Antihistamines, both tablets and nasal sprays, can relieve a runny nose, nasal itching and sneezing. They are not very effective for nasal congestion.

*Sodium cromoglicate nasal spray (Rynacrom etc)is sometimes effective in relieving mild/moderate symptoms of allergic rhinitis. It is not as effective as Beconase.

*Ipratropium bromide nasal spray (Rinatec) can relieve a runny nose......... but usually not congestion.

*Montelukast (Singulair) tablets are similarly effective to antihistamine tablets.

*All decongestant nasal sprays are contra-indicated with MAOIs.... so I haven't listed any.

Kind regards

~Ed
