Is Flonase a Steroid Nasal Spray?

IS FLONASE A STEROID?

FLONASE® is a steroid nasal spray that offers 24-hour relief from allergy symptoms like nasal congestion, runny nose, and sneezing.1 It is also the first and only over-the-counter allergy nasal spray  indicated to relieve itchy, watery eyes.2

WHAT IS A STEROID NASAL SPRAY?

A nasal steroid – or nasal steroid spray to your medical professionals – is a medicine typically prescribed by a doctor to help relieve allergy symptoms and ease breathing through your nose.1 However, FLONASE® is one of only two nasal steroid allergy spray brands that you can buy over-the-counter.3

HOW DO NASAL STEROIDS WORK?

Congestion and other nasal allergy symptoms are caused by swelling in your nose. Nasal steroid sprays like Flonase help reduce swelling, which reduces the sensitivity of your nasal passages and makes them less susceptible to allergy triggers such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites, or ragweed.1 FLONASE® helps block 6 of these allergic substances, not just 1.**
