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.

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.
Neil Med saline wash works well. And I see my ENT doctor every 3 months for maintenance with prednisone. Consult with your physician.
Some say steroids. Surgery can also help it.
a nasal polyp is a soft body tissue formed into a ball form. Nasal polyp's are usually found in the nose or in the colon. Nasal polyp's can be removed by surgery or laser surg…ery. Polyps can cause blockage in your nose if it is in the nasal area.
The answer is YES. I had polyps so bad that I literally couldn't breathe thru either side of my nose. Up all night clearing my throat, and trying to fall asleep despite that I… could only breathe thru my mouth. Complete misery! I ended up going to an ENT, was scoped, and diagnosed with nasal polyps. After steroids, antibiotics, sprays, and a second trip to his office, surgery seemed like the only solution at that point. In a desperate attempt to try one last thing, I ordered a remedy from sinus-pro.com. It helped tremendously! I now have been taking the Sinuswars 13 remedy, and have been feeling great as well. They really do work! I had a polyp so big that when I blew my nose, you could see the bulge in my left nostril from the outside of my nose. It's not visible whatsoever now, and I can breathe much, MUCH better. Just follow the directions and be patient. It didn't bring relief overnight, or even in just a couple days, it took a couple of weeks for me to feel some relief. Hope this helps everyone, because I know first hand that polyps can cause an uncomfortable interruption to everyday life.
