FLONASE NASAL SPRAYS VS NASACORT®

choosing the right allergy treatment in the store

 

Experts say that over-the-counter (OTC) anti-inflammatory nasal sprays—such as FLONASE nasal sprays or Nasacort® 24 Hour—are the most effective form of nasal allergy relief.1 But how do you know which OTC nasal spray is right for you? Here’s a look at how these nasal sprays work and what sets them apart.

WHY ANTI-INFLAMMATORY NASAL SPRAYS PROVIDE MORE COMPLETE RELIEF

For years, the go-to choice for allergy relief was an antihistamine, usually in the form of a pill. But antihistamines only block histamine, just 1 of the many allergic substances your immune system releases when you’re exposed to an allergen.*2

 

An OTC allergy spray that’s formulated with corticosteroids—a type of medicine approved by the FDA to treat nasal allergy symptoms—provides more complete relief† of total nasal symptoms than an antihistamine.3

 

Nasal sprays with corticosteroids block a variety of allergic substances. For example, FLONASE helps block 6 key allergic substances, including histamine, to treat your symptoms.*

FLONASE TREATS MULTIPLE SYMPTOMS, INCLUDING ITCHY, WATERY EYES††

Both FLONASE and Nasacort® 24 Hour nasal sprays are OTC corticosteroid nasal sprays that relieve nasal allergy symptoms, including nasal congestion. But unlike Nasacort® 24 Hour nasal sprays, FLONASE nasal sprays are also indicated to relieve itchy, watery eyes†† to provide you with the symptom relief that you need to be greater than your allergies.

 

*Mechanism vs most over-the-counter (OTC) allergy pills. FLONASE acts on multiple inflammatory substances (histamine, prostaglandins, cytokines, tryptases, chemokines, and leukotrienes). The exact number and precise mechanism are unknown.

vs single-ingredient antihistamines that do not treat nasal congestion.

††FLONASE SENSIMIST is indicated for itchy, watery eyes in adults and children 12 years of age and older. See product pages for full information.
