I have been able to keep my SEVERE polyps under control with two doses of 80 milligram Oxycontin per day. I will be having my SECOND surgury very soon. However, no " Doctor " will ever listen to why this works, or prescribe this Med. for any patient. You will be assumed to be an Abuser. This powerful anti inflammitory ( and headache moderator) works. I am 52 years old, former Racehorse Trainer, and have NEVER!!! abused ANY medication!!! Hope this helps someone. It took me 5 years to find out by accident. Thank God....I get a little sleep, without waking up gasping for breath everytime my mouth closes in sleep.

What can you use instead of prednsone to cure nasal polyps?

My doctor gives me a shot of kenalog approx. every 4 months to help treat my nasal polyps. It usually clears up everything for about 2 months and then slowly they come back over the next 2 months. I also use flonase daily and sinus rinse once or twice a day. It was definitely an improvement over the prednisone bursts and lasted much longer. Also, if you haven't been tested for allergies at all or in a few years, you should see if any allergies exist. I found that after 3 years I acquired quite a few more reactions and also now use antihismines where needed.
