HOW DO FLONASE PRODUCTS WORK?
As opposed to most OTC allergy pills, FLONASE products help block 6 allergic substances, not just 1.**
Allergens enter your body through your nose and trigger a response from your immune system.
This results in the release of inflammatory substances that cause your allergic symptoms.
FLONASE acts to block 6 of these inflammatory substances, including histamine, to treat your symptoms.
**Mechanism vs most over-the-counter (OTC) allergy pills. FLONASE nasal sprays act on multiple inflammatory substances (histamine, prostaglandins, cytokine, tryptases, chemokine, and leukotrienes). The exact number and precise mechanism are unknown.
ALLERGY SYMPTOM RELIEF†
Once-daily FLONASE nasal spray products are proven to offer 24-hour relief from both nose- and eye-related allergy symptoms. FLONASE products are both non-addictive and non-drowsy.
†vs single-ingredient antihistamines which 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.
