Who should not take nasal cromolyn?

Anyone who has had an allergic reaction to any form of cromolyn should not use nasal cromolyn. If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, talk to your doctor before using nasal cromolyn. Studies have been done mainly on young adults, so children and elderly persons may be at higher risk for serious side effects. Tell your doctor if you have nasal obstructions like polyps because they could prevent nasal cromolyn from working effectively. People with a history of kidney or liver disease should not use nasal cromolyn because of their bodies may not eliminate the drug well.
