TREATING ALLERGY SYMPTOMS: PILLS VS NASAL SPRAYS
If you’ve always taken antihistamine pills to treat your allergy symptoms, using an allergy nasal spray may seem intimidating or unfamiliar. But once you discover the benefits of using an intranasal corticosteroid (INS) nasal spray you might find yourself wondering why you didn’t switch sooner!
HOW THEY ARE APPLIED
Not all forms of allergy medicines work the same. Some come in the form of a tablet and are meant to be administered orally, while others – like FLONASE – come in the form of a nasal spray and are meant to be applied directly at the source: inside the nose. Because INS nasal sprays work directly in your nose, very little of the drug travels elsewhere in your body allowing for minimal drug on drug interactions and systemic side-effects.
As a very fine, soothing mist, FLONASE works in your nose to block allergic reactions right at the source, where you need it most – relieving symptoms caused by pollen, mold, dust and pets. FLONASE helps to control several key inflammatory substances* that trigger a response from your immune system and cause your allergic symptoms.
*FLONASE Allergy Nasal Spray acts on multiple inflammatory substances (histamine, prostaglandins, cytokines, tryptases, chemokines, and leukotrienes). The exact number and precise mechanism are unknown.
LEVEL OF RELIEF
Some single-ingredient allergy pills don’t treat nasal congestion, which is generally acknowledged as one of the most bothersome allergy symptoms. Allergy nasal sprays, like FLONASE Allergy Relief, treat multiple allergy symptoms and work directly in your nose, where airborne allergic reactions start.
One of the most common side effects of single-ingredient antihistamines is drowsiness. FLONASE Allergy Relief is non-drowsy.
FLONASE Allergy Relief is a great choice if you’re a long-time user of allergy pills looking to make the transition to nasal sprays.
