Medication for alergies

Hi Prof: My son of 32 months suffers from alergies throughout the year at times worse than others. He is on Flexy Naise Nasal spray twice a day, Dezilex 3.5 mls once a day and Singulair once a day. My question is it safe to have him on Dezilex and the Flexy Nais for long term use. He has been on the Dezilex and the Flexy Nais for 7 months. I cannot stop any of these medications, as he blocks up so badly only quortozone and antibiartics clears his nose and chest.

The usual dose of Flixonase is once a day and it should not be given twice a day.He is on the correct dose of Deselex Syrup which should be given in the evening before bedtime. Both of these medicines are very safe. I hope that your son has been tested for his allergies so that you know what is causing his severe allergic rhinitis.
