1 Shake the bottle and take off the dust cap.
2 Blow your nose gently.
3 Close one nostril with your finger as shown on the printed leaflet in your pack, and put the nozzle in the other nostril. Tilt your head forward slightly and keep the bottle upright. Hold the bottle as shown.
4 Start to breathe in slowly through your nose. While you are breathing in press down firmly on the collar with your fingers. A spray of fine mist will go into your nostril.
5 Breathe out through your mouth.
6 Repeat step 4 to use a second spray in the same nostril.
7 Remove the nozzle from this nostril and breathe out through your mouth.
8 Repeat steps 3 to 6 for your other nostril.
9 After using your spray, wipe the nozzle carefully with a clean tissue or handkerchief, and replace the dust cap.

The precise mechanism through which fluticasone propionate affects rhinitis symptoms is not known. Corticosteroids have been shown to have a wide range of effects on multiple cell types (., mast cells, eosinophils, neutrophils, macrophages, lymphocytes) and mediators (., histamine, eicosanoids, leukotrienes, cytokines) involved in inflammation. In 7 trials in adults, fluticasone propionate nasal spray has decreased nasal mucosal eosinophils in 66% of patients (35% for placebo) and basophils in 39% of patients (28% for placebo). The direct relationship of these findings to long-term symptom relief is not known.

Anonymous on 4/27, I can't comment on whether or not you should have the polyps surgically removed, but I'd certainly get a second (medical) opinion before going ahead with it. There are always trade-offs. For more information on balloon sinuplasty, check out my post and talk to your ENT.

Anonymous on 4/28, I'm sorry to hear that your first experience was so miserable! First I'd make sure that your recipe is correct (all the right ingredients in the right amounts). I'd also try irrigating with warm (not hot) saline - much more pleasant than cold. Finally, you might try a different method.

Here's how I do it now (and I've been doing it consistently, morning and evening, ever since I wrote the original post). Standing in front of a sink, I tilt my head backwards and gently squeeze the saline into one nostril until it feels about right (not too much or too little fluid). With my head still tilted backwards, I rock my head from side to side to "swish" the saline around my nasal cavity. Then I lean forward and gently expel the contents (out both nostrils) into the sink. Finally I blow my nose (again, being gentle is key) and wipe away any residual fluid.

BTW, I also add a small amount of mouthwash to my recipe because I like its scent, but I wouldn't recommend that to people with sensitive noses- it stings if you add too much.
