What's the difference between fluticasone furoate and foxefenadine when treating rhinitis? Can a patient react well to one and not to the other?Thanks
Completely different: Fluticasone furoate is a topical nasal steroid in a spray form. It works by reducing inflammation over time through a variety of pathways. Fexofenadine is an oral antihistamine taken by mouth and works by blocking the chemical histamine in our bodies. Overall, the nasal spray does more to reduce allergy symptom scores and may also help with non-allergic conditions such as non-allergic rhinitis. ...Read more

Probably OK: Drug expiration dates reflect the time of proved safety and effectiveness. But in almost all cases, the drug remains potent and safe for much longer (often many years), if it hasn't been exposed to high heat for long periods (like a car's glove compartment in summer).
