ALLERGY RELIEF THAT’S MORE COMPLETE THAN AN ANTIHISTAMINE

FLONASE® Allergy Relief Nasal Sprays vs Claritin®

When it comes to managing your allergy symptoms, there are many over-the-counter (OTC) medicines to choose from. But how do you know which is right for you? Many OTC allergy medicines, such as Claritin®, are single-ingredient oral antihistamines that do not treat nasal congestion. However, FLONASE® anti-inflammatory allergy nasal sprays work differently to provide more complete relief.*

FLONASE® BLOCKS MORE ALLERIC SUBSTANCES

For years, the go-to choice for allergy relief was an antihistamine, usually in the form of a pill. But antihistamines only block histamine, which is just 1 of the many allergic substances your immune system releases when you’re exposed to an allergen.1

FLONASE® contains a corticosteroid—a type of medicine that has been approved by the FDA to treat nasal allergy symptoms—which helps block 6 key allergic substances, not just histamine,** providing you with relief from your allergy symptoms.

Here’s a look at how FLONASE® allergy nasal sprays stack up against single-ingredient oral antihistamines like Claritin®.
