Drug Interactions With Fluticasone Propionate Nasal Spray

Certain Antibiotics and Antifungals
Some antibiotics and antifungals can increase the level of fluticasone propionate in your blood, perhaps increasing your risk of side effects. In particular, too much fluticasone propionate in your blood can suppress your body's ability to produce natural steroids, which can cause serious consequences. This interaction is most likely to be a problem for people taking both antibiotics and antifungals on a long-term basis. Your healthcare provider may need to decrease your fluticasone propionate nasal spray dosage.
 
Protease Inhibitors
Protease inhibitors can greatly increase the level of fluticasone propionate in your blood, potentially causing serious side effects. In general, taking these medications together is not recommended, except in extreme circumstances. Talk to your healthcare provider before using fluticasone propionate nasal spray with a protease inhibitor.
