Dear Mr. lybrate-user, ideally you should be asking the question to your doctor who prescribed the treatment. Polyps commonly occur in the nose and are treated with low dose steroid nasal spray (fluticasone) usually for 3- 4 months or longer based on individual patient response. The inhaler is used for treating breathing difficulties in the lungs such as in asthma, copd, etc. Since it is not clear from the information you provided whether you have only polyps or there is lung disease as well, a definite answer cannot be given, but if your polyps have significantly reduced in size then, you may discontinue the nasal spray. However I would recommend either consulting your treating doctor or an ent surgeon for the most specific and appropriate treatment plan for you. Best wishes.

Its the content that matters not the brand. So if its the same contents as what your doctor has advised then you can take them. Do discuss with your doctor.
