French meds... just wondering..
What your experience is with French medications... I am at the tail end of a yucky cold.. I think I got sick from stressing about the results of my biopsies and my immune system was compromised.. Anyhow.. I finally started some homeopathic remedies that I have used before and were effective... and today I also went to see my GP doctor... He confirmed my slight ear infection, sore throat, a blocked nose... So, he prescribed some over meds to pick up at the pharmacy to clear up the virul symptoms. One of the things was a nose spray. I sprayed once into one nostril and looked to see what it was: Prednisolone was the first ingred. I thought it was prenisone, which is a cortisoid that I have taken twice in my life for horrible asthma. I was shocked to see that they would give a nasal spray with a steroid... though I know it helps with inflammation. I am a mostly, "no meds" kind of gal, taking antibiotics only when necessary and trying NOT to take the other meds- pain killers, etc... for things I can use homeopathie instead. Long story short... Why would I want to use a steroid nasal spray to clear up my runny nose when there are other things to use??? Has anyone ever heard of this spray, Derinox?? Just wondering... I am NOT going to take it... Thanks
