Is flonase an antihistamine?

No: Flonase is a type of intranasal topical steroid spray. It's very effective and safe in dealing with the symptoms of rhinitis, but has a different mechanism of action.

No: Flonase is a nasal steroid spray. It is often used in conjunction with an antihistamine. The most commonly used antihistamines today are the non-sedating antihistamines: claritin, Allegra and zyrtec. Each of these had a generic drug available, too.
