Question: I am an adult with chronic nasal congestion I have a constant stuffy nose without using Vancanase. I use one shot daily. I have used it since last May,1999, at the start of allergy season. Is there a health risk involved using it for this or a longer period of time?

Answer: Probably not. There are occasional rare reports of adrenal suppression with nasal steroids, but very, very uncommon. Most mds think there are no systemic effects of nasal steroids.
