Is it okay if I take a nasal allergy medication with my asthma medication? Thanks!

Yes: Although they are both similar medications that do similar things, the delivery systems tend to make them work better for either the upper or lower respiratory system, not both at the same time. They are most often used together

2 sprays each nostri: The usual dose is 2 sprays each nostril once daily. Potentially better control of the nasal symptoms may improve asthma but the effects are variable.
