Science of Flonase®

INSIDE THE MOLECULE: THE SCIENCE OF FLONASE®

How does a molecule become the #1-prescribed allergy ingredient in America? By giving people effective relief from their allergy symptoms, of course.

FLONASE® Allergy Relief has been helping millions of people feel better for over 20 years. All thanks to its key  ingredient, originally patented by Glaxo Group Limited in 1981.

HOW FLONASE® ALLERGY RELIEF WORKS DIRECTLY AT THE SOURCE

FLONASE® works right at the source of your symptoms — inside your nose. Unlike allergy pills, barely any of the medicine travels through your body, so your risk of certain side effects may be lower. Doctors have relied on this glucocorticoid for over 20 years to help their patients get relief from their allergies.

HOW IT INTERRUPTS YOUR ALLERGIC REACTION

Unlike many other allergy medicines, FLONASE® is remarkably effective at interrupting what’s known as “the allergic cascade” — the sequence of reactions in your body when exposed to an allergen. The body reacts by producing multiple substances, yet many allergy medicines can only block one. In comparison, the powerful fluticasone propionate molecule in FLONASE® Allergy Relief helps block six.*

Add it all up, and it’s clear why FLONASE® has been the preferred treatment of so many people with allergies.

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