It is often good news when a medication becomes available over-the-counter for ease of purchase and affordability for consumers. The same is the case for Flonase which was released this month as an additional OTC option for nasal allergy sufferers to treat nasal symptoms such as nasal congestion, sneezing and a runny, itchy nose. Nasacort 24HR, containing triamcinolone acetonide, was the first nasal steroid OTC released last year.
Flonase, containing fluticasone propionate, and has been shown to be an effective treatment for many suffering with allergic rhinitis (a.k.a. hay fever). With approximately 40 million Americans experiencing indoor/outdoor allergies, this news should help many sufferers. A 60-spray single package is $13.99 at Target this week plus you can take advantage of additional savings by using the $3 coupon in last Sunday’s newspaper. A three-pack, 120-spray package is $53.49 at Costco.
