beware

I was wondering why I was getting migraines. Well I read the ingredients to my prescription nasal spray and it contains sucralose (Splenda)! I thought nasal sprays were safe, well I was wrong. So if you avoid artificial sweetener be sure to check your nasal sprays (if you use them).

By the was the nasal spray was Astapro.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Sucralose is a zero calorie sweetener. It could have been added to mask the taste of the  antihistamine, which is usually bitter. You could try using plain saline nasal sprays instead.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
