Steroid nasal spray depression

Neil S. Sachanandani, ., and colleagues at the Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, assessed the effects of budesonide on adrenal function in nine patients between 2005 and 2006. Participants were instructed to use a nasal wash composed of milligrams of budesonide and 5 milliliters of saline in each nostril once daily for 30 days. At clinic visits before and after the treatment period, participants completed a questionnaire assessing their rhinosinusitis symptoms and related quality of life. Their cortisol levels were measured after injection with cosyntropin, a compound that stimulates the release of cortisol by the adrenal glands—a standard method of testing adrenal function.
