We have run audits on people with nasal steroids on repeat or otherwise had nasal steroids this year and sent sms advising them. Also messages have been put on the next script.

Patients on steroid eye medication are similarly advised.

From Queens Bower , the MHRA revealed recently that there is a rare but serious side effect of nasal steroids on the eyes.Blurred vision is one of the symptoms of the condition though it is a normal side effect. Please report blurred vision.
