Can You Buy Flonase Over The Counter

Can You Buy Flonase Over The Counter =====

Male Speaker: When we breathe in allergens, our bodies react by overproducing six key inflammatory substances that cause our symptoms. Most allergy pills only control one substance, Flonase controls six. Flonase, this changes everything.

It is important to tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the medications you use, including prescription, over-the-counter, dietary supplements, vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.

Now you can. In 2020, the CARES Act expanded the coverage of over-the-counter (OTC) products for these accounts. You typically can purchase Flonase OTC products using your healthcare flexible spending account (FSA or HSA card).

The rules are dependent upon your flex plan, too, so check with your insurance carrier or employer about using your flex account for over-the-counter medications written on a prescription by your doctor.

Plus, in addition to Flonase Allergy and Flonase Sensimist, there is now over-the-counter Nasacort (triamcinolone) Allergy 24HR Spray and Rhinocort Allergy Nasal Spray (budesonide). In June 2021, Astepro Allergy, a steroid-free antihistamine nasal spray, also went from prescription to OTC status.

**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.

Friedlander SL, Tichenor WS, Skoner DP. Risk of adverse effects, misdiagnosis, and suboptimal patient care with the use of over-the-counter triamcinolone. Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol. 2013;111(5):319-22. doi:10.1016/j.anai.2013.09.013

Decongestant sprays shrink swollen blood vessels and tissues in your nose that cause congestion. Oxymetazoline hydrochloride (Afrin, Dristan, Sinex) and phenylephrine hydrochloride (Neo-Synephrine) are some examples of these medicines. You can buy them over the counter.

Examples of steroid nasal sprays available by prescription include beclomethasone (Beconase, Qnasl), ciclesonide (Zetonna), fluticasone furoate (Veramyst), and mometasone (Nasonex). Three medications can be purchased over the counter -- budesonide (Rhinocort Allergy), fluticasone (Flonase Allergy Relief), and triamcinolone (Nasacort Allergy 24HR).

Nonprescription (over the counter) fluticasone nasal spray is used to relieve symptoms of rhinitis such as sneezing and a runny, stuffy, or itchy nose and itchy, watery eyes caused by hay fever or other allergies (caused by an allergy to pollen, mold, dust, or pets). Prescription fluticasone nasal spray is used to relieve symptoms of nonallergic rhinitis such as sneezing and runny or stuffy nose which are not caused by allergies. Prescription fluticasone nasal spray (Xhance) is used to treat nasal polyps (swelling of the lining of the nose). Fluticasone nasal spray should not be used to treat symptoms (e.g., sneezing, stuffy, runny, itchy nose) caused by the common cold. Fluticasone is in a class of medications called corticosteroids. It works by blocking the release of certain natural substances that cause allergy symptoms.

It is important for you to keep a written list of all of the prescription and nonprescription (over-the-counter) medicines you are taking, as well as any products such as vitamins, minerals, or other dietary supplements. You should bring this list with you each time you visit a doctor or if you are admitted to a hospital. It is also important information to carry with you in case of emergencies.

Flonase comes in both generic and brand forms. It is available over-the-counter (OTC) as well as a prescription medication. The generic product of Flonase is fluticasone propionate nasal spray. Prescription Flonase may be covered by your drug insurance plan. OTC medications are usually not covered by insurance. However, you may be able to get an OTC Flonase spray for a discounted price using a coupon with a prescription from your doctor.
