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.

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).
