Be greater than your allergies
ALLERGY RELIEF THAT IS NON-DROWSY
FLONASE® Nasal Sprays vs ZYRTEC®
Not all over-the-counter (OTC) allergy medicines are created equal. Single-ingredient oral antihistamines don't relieve nasal congestion, and some, like ZYRTEC®, may even cause drowsiness. FLONASE® products are non-drowsy, anti-inflammatory allergy relief nasal sprays that provide more complete relief* than a single-ingredient antihistamine. Here’s how FLONASE® stacks up against oral antihistamines, like ZYRTEC®.
FLONASE® DOES MORE
Antihistamines only block histamine—just one of the many allergic substances your immune system releases when you’re exposed to an allergen.1 However, FLONASE® products work differently to help block 6 key allergic substances,** including histamine, effectively treating allergy symptoms.
NON-DROWSY ALLERGY RELIEF
A known side effect of certain antihistamines is drowsiness. This may affect your ablity to perform everyday tasks, like driving or operating heavy machinery.2 FLONASE® products are non-drowsy and each of them outperforms a leading non-drowsy allergy pill,† so you can stay alert without worrying about your allergy symptoms.
