Several choices.: It depends on your insurance coverage, your cost, and pharmacy availability. An antihistamine will help. Also decrease allergens and respiratory tract irritants in environment by stopping all fragrances, aerosols, and smoke (from any source).

I'm currently prescribed Nasonex (mometasone). I sometimes have nosebleeds with it. If I switch to Flonase will that chance increase or decrease?
Similar: These two have similar effectiveness and side effects. Be sure that you are aiming the spray towards the lateral sides of the nose and not towards the center. Despite this, a few people will still get nosebleeds. If this continues, ask your doctor for a nasal antihistamine instead. ...Read more

What can I do about nasal congestion/inflammation swelling? Is nasonex (mometasone) or Flonase the only treatment?
Inflamed nose: It is a good treatment but some individuals improve by avoiding irritants or allergens.

Lastly if your problem is due to chronic allergies rebuilding your immune system with specific immunotherapy is a good idea. ...Read more
Nasonex, (mometasone) nasacort aq or flonase, which quicker for nasal congestion/ seasonal allergies? I also nasal colloidal silve-nott o2 binding, will that work
Nasal sprays: All nasal steroids take a few days to start working and need to build up a dose before they become fully effective. Nasal antihistamines are quicker in onset of actiion. A combination nasal spray should help your symptoms for fast and long lasting relief. Now i don't know anything about the coooloidal silver spray you mentioned. ...Read more
I am taking nasonex (mometasone) my insurance won't cover that any longer they suggest Nasacort AQ or fluticasone or flunisolide. Can I switch and to which one?
YES: Anyone of the above will be okay. ...Read more
The compound: Flonase is Fluticasone Propionate and Veramyst is fluticasone furoate. They have changed the "side chain" of the steroid molecule making it potentially a more active compound. It binds to the receptor more "tightly" and may last longer. Thus you may have better results with Veramyst vs. Flonase. ...Read more

What is the difference between allegra (fexofenadine) and Flonase for allergy relief -take one or both?
Flonase better: Allegra is an atihistamine and is helpful for itchiness, sneezing and a runny nose, not helpful for congestion. Flonase, an intranasal steroid covers all these symptoms plus congestion. Head to head studies comparing Flonase to antihistamines, singulair, (montelukast) or sudafed showed that Flonase beat them all. I usually suggest daily Flonase and adding an antihistamine on as needed or supplemental basis. ...Read more
Flonase: Topical nasal steroid sprays like Flonase have near negligible absorption in your system (ie blood). Blood levels of any nasal steroid is far below any oral steroid dosing a doctor would give. Topically within the nasal cavity Flonase is active for 12-24 hrs on the mucosa. So we recommend either once or twice daily dosing depending on symptom severity. ...Read more
