They are different: The steroid sprays work differently than the anithistamine (ah) nasal sprays. The ah sprays have more of an immediate effect, whereas may take a few weeks to get relief with steroid sprays, but have longer effect and need to be used regularly. Ah sprays can be used as needed.

Both help: Both methods of treatment can be effective. Results vary from one individual to another. In general, steroid sprays might be considered more effective, but some individuals may not tolerate them due to nosebleeds or other effects and may respond better to the antihistamine sprays. Treatment should be individualized.
