Generic Flonase® This steroid spray is the single most effective way to relieve non-stop nasal congestion that an antihistamine can’t clear on its own. It’s also been found to provide relief from itchy, watery eyes and other nasal symptoms including runny or itchy nose, sneezing, and throat itchiness.
Fluticasone may cause burning or irritation inside the nose or throat, changes in taste or smell, or cough. For more, please see additional important safety information.
How it worksNasal steroids like fluticasone decrease inflammation in the nose, which in turn decreases mucus production, congestion, and all of the not-so-fun related nasal symptoms. Less sensitive nasal passages are less likely to get irritated by allergens.
Allergist AdviceConsidered the “gold standard” of allergy treatment options, nasal sprays are very effective in reducing overall allergic response — but they can require up to a week of consistent, daily use to take full effect.
