Who should not take fluticasone nasal?

If you are currently pregnant or are thinking about becoming pregnant, talk to your doctor before using fluticasone nasal. It belongs to a family of medications, called corticosteroids, that have been known to affect unborn babies. It is not known whether fluticasone passes into breast milk, so you should discuss this potential risk with a doctor if you are planning to nurse a baby. Finally, fluticasone can affect the growth of a child and may be dangerous for children under four years of age. Never give it to anyone for whom it has not been prescribed, and tell your doctor if you think your child's growth is being affected.
